Blue for a Boy!

Good afternoon everyone. I hope the weather is not too bad where you are. Here it is very cold but it has been a beautiful sunny day. Would be even better if the ground was not covered with snow and ice lol!

This week I need to make male cards for my hubbby and son-in-law. I made a very quick one for my son-in-law this afternoon as Ineed to post it tomorrow for Wednesday. At least it would have been quick but when I picked it up to take a photo of it I realised I had stuck the gingham panel - and of course the image and sentiment - in the wrong places. So I had to make it into an easel card. Oh well at least it's finished now, nothing else to do. The doggy, which came from an Inkadinkado clear set of stamps, reminded me of their daft Labrador Missy. The paws are from the same set. I've been dying to use the ticket stamp from Hero Arts so this was the perfect chance. This lovely DP is from the blue patchwork set from Cuddly Buddly. I love these papers, I used the purple set already this weekend and I also have pink! As I am keeping this card nice and plain and simple, I don't think men appreciate bows and flowers and jewels, I finished by adding some card candy coloured with Promarker from Craftwork Cards.

Not much else to say girls except I hope he likes it. I'm feeling quite creative today so maybe I can get something else planned before I need to make tea. Just the two of us tonight as daughter is working till 10pm so we can eat quite early and I can have an evening of crafting! Well apart of having to iron and go online and find a birthday present for my son-in-law!

I think I can enter a few challenges with this card too:-

Sketch and Stash :- Sketch and I used some lovely new stamps.
Totally Papercrafts :- Lots of spots.
Papertake Weekly :- Checks/gingham.
Allsorts :- Tag, ticket or label.
Cupcake :- Keep it simple.

Enjoy the rest of your day.
