Man Card Monday

Myra's Fabulous Boy Card
 Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, I haven't had a good enough connection yet to catch up with everything that has been happening, but I will eventually.
Today our male themed card comes from our lovely Myra, I love all of the little accessories you have added to the card Myra, they would also be great for a 'Back to School' or 'starting school' card too, they look like little buttons, apart from the calculator, which is just such a cute little miniature!
I also love, love, love the font you have used for the 'Timothy' could you please share with us what it is and where we can get hold of it, as its just fancy enough, without being too over the top.
Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic card with us Myra xxx
Have a great day everyone,
Love and Huge Hugs
Sandra

  1. Good morning all, hope you are well and ready for the Day & Week ahead
    SANDRA, PAUL & GIRLS, hope the weather says good for you, have a great day.
    MYRA:- your card is brilliant, love all the little embellishments and great design.
    I know some are "buttons" I have them in my stash. The scissors and clock face I feel might be "charms". I am sure you will keep us up to speed on that Myra.
    The sun is up here this morning, wonder how long it will last,
    Everything set up for the day, place looking really fresh. Lots of lovely goodies in the fridge and in that smart Cooler Cabinet. Someone has put in one of those "death by chocolate" cakes Oh! My! Word! how many calories is in a slice of that. Ooopps!! forgot .... NONE ..... everything is calorie free!!
    Off to get on with the cleaning. It's a bit early to shove John out of his cocoon to get the bedding in the machine.
    Will have my Tea & Toast at my favourite table first. Will see who is up and about. Might just read to see what went on later last night.
    (((((hugs))))) in the basket by the door. See you all later xxx

  3. Good morning Sandra and all who call or look in today. I see big sis is in will go over and chat to her.
    Myra, your card is brilliant, love all your liittle embellishments along with your papers, layers and design. I hope today goes well for you, and lots of fun is had.
    Jess, good luck with the x-Rays I hope they handle you gently.
    Margaret C, we are thinking about you, and hope you are ok and it is only Internet problems that are keeping you away.
    Jean, where are you, again we hope it's internet problems?
    Janice, hope your week will be made easier with hopefully some good weather.
    I need to go and sit and have my tea and chat to Patricia or she will be whizzing off to do her house work before I know it. I will be doing some later, but I won't be whizzing around that's for sure. Oh that cake does look good I can see it not lasting long. I will have one of the tea cakes toasted. (((((( hugs)))))) in basket. xxx

    1. Thanks Hazel we did have lots of fun! I got a bit of a shock though. A young woman came with her 7 year old son. Oh she said - you are still here - you taught me craft! I felt as old as the hills! At least she still recognised me! Xxx

    Myra-love your card, its just perfect. Where did you get all the toppers/accessories for it?

    Today looks like it's going to be another nice day-seems a shame when I'm going to work! Mind you I'm only in 3 days this week, taken Thursday & Friday as holiday. Going into Southport Flower Show with my mad (crazy cluttered house) friend on Thursday then got a few jobs lined up for Friday-2 new tyres on my car then lots of bags to the charity shop.

    Hubby seems less grumpy so have put the BBQ away-still got the slow cooker to threaten him with, or the George Foreman!!!
    Best make my lunch & be on my way-very busy week at work this week.

    3. Oh Michele what a lovely way to chill after your 3 days of work....a lovely day at Southport flower show. Hubby and I used to go regularly to Southport and Shrewsbury flower shows... and great to have your crazy friend with you too.

    4. Michele, 3 more days - then bliss. Husband is easily sorted -- just ignore him!! Enjoy the flower show with your crazy friend. is she crazy because she's friends with you, or is there some other reason lol xxxx

    5. Thanks Michele, I've answered the questions down below! If you see what I mean. We are not going to the Flower Show this year as I'm tied up at holiday Club! They don't usually clash but are this year, xxx

  5. Good morning ladies
    Patricia the cafe is looking lovely, thank you.
    I just wrote a huge post that had disappeared into Spanish cyberspace!
    It is a little overcast here this morning but it's forecast to brighten up before lunch time.
    My fingers are itching to do some card making, so today I am going to try the quilling starter kit out that Sue put together for me, although I have watched Sue doing it and it takes a lot of patience. Not hot sweaty fingers in 28 degree heat. But I am going to try.
    This is the perfect place to try new things. None of the distractions of every day life at home, it's so lovely to see the girls reading their books for hours or messing about with Paul in the sea, there's no tv, ps3 or homework to distract them. That'd the one thing I love about camping, you communicate a lot more, playing games all evening rather than sat watching TV, I love it and surprisingly the girls do to, yesterday they were talking about coming back here with their families, which I thought was lovely and proves that they love it too. Not some big modern resort with disco and clubs to the early hours!
    Right must go. Get organised for the day, we are late today, we have been up packed and in the beach by 9.30 before today!
    Jess I hope all goes well today my lovely x
    Love and hugs to all

    6. Hola Sandra, so glad you are all having a wonderful time and enjoying family life. Enjoy your crafting, although my hands would get to hot and sticky in the hot sun. We are managing to repair most things in the Cafe, don't worry - it will be all fine by the time you get back (we hope ha ha) xxxxxx

    8. Sandra, Paul and the girls, I'm so pleased it sounds like you are all relaxing which is what you all need after all the goings-on you've had this year. And it's good the girls realise that life does go on without all the gadgets. Hopefully they will return refreshed and ready for the next academic year, which is going to be a really busy one.
      Enjoy the rest of your holiday LOL Brenda XXX

      For some reason half way down I couldn't leave any more comments! Probably say too much! So pleased you are having a lovely holiday and Muriel has only made a tower of chairs once! She has these strange ideas about how to change a lightbulb! Don't worry - only minimal damage to the chairs - none to Muriel! Well!

  6. Hi Sandra and all the lovely ladies
    Wow Myra what an amazing card, the buttons are so cute! I've often looked at them at shows and resisted buying because I know I wouldn't use them but now I've seen them they just might come my way next time! My guess for the font is Tonic dies, my friend has tonic ones and the font is lovely - unlike some TL ones I bought where the E looks nothing like an E! I hope your craft club goes well today and you don't suffer too much getting up early! Xxxxx
    Jess I hope your appointment goes well xxx
    Michele apart from tyres what a lovely week and only 3 days! You don't need mr grumpy at home as well as miss fish face at work though so I hope he cheers up soon! Xxx
    Patricia you do make me laugh, I can imagine you stood there looking at your dear husband wrapped up in the duvet in the land of nod and you itching to grab the sheet and wiz him out of bed! Remember it was really early when you had those thoughts and the poor man needs his sleep! Xxx
    Well the sun is out here today which is lovely after all the rain. Today I am trying to get a teenager organised! Wish me luck! There's a pile of washing that she needs to do and we need to go shopping for new jeans and undies and start looking for a decent coat! I have asked her to get up before 12 today so I hope the nagging works!
    See you all later xxxxx

    1. Well ladies Emma did get up and did manage to put her washing on but decided she didn't want to go shopping today so plans were put on hold!

    6. Thank you all for your Freddy's comments so sorry for saying S..t but if you see the mess he makes well i think you would shout it out loud.

    7. Lynda, I can see the mess he makes as friends of ours have had two parrots and I can remember the state of the cage and surroundings. They have had to rehome theirs as with Ann being unwell and breathing not good they didn't know if he was causing her a problem plus the extra work on her OH. It was a pity but it's another friend who has taken him on so they no he's well cared for.,plus they are younger. Parrots live so long. Xxx

    Now before I start my post properly I want to say I'm a happy bunny to find out that our Mr. Murray beat Djioc....Novak in the Montreal final last night!! Yeeha! He is now the world's No.2! Way to go Andy! Sorry if you are not tennis fans ladies.
    The sun is shining again, I have a bit of washing to do then I might pop in to town later on.
    MYRA what a fabulous boy card, I just love all the cute embellishments you have used...it's a card that can easily be changed to an older male too. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
    JESS good luck with your X-ray.
    I'm a bit late this morning so I'll just have tea and toast ....I really must stop having late nights I just get so engrossed in all the CSIs on TV...I do wish it would at midnight like it used to then I wouldn't be so tempted to stay up. I was never one to stay up late hen Clive was here,
    I do hope our lovelies that are missing are just a bit busy to pop in and are not poorly.
    Have stacked the basket up with hugs so please take some if you need them

    3. Hi Sheila,
      Which CSI do you prefer, Vegas, New York or Miami ?
      I personally don't think you can beat Grissom but I do like Horatio too and Mac Taylor for that matter, but I keep seeing him as Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump !
      I can understand the staying up late thing Sheila, I do it when Paul is away sometimes, I do it to really tire myself out in hope of a good night sleep, but it rarely works, do you read?
      Hope you got your washing dry, it would have been dry in minutes here!

      Oooooh I love all three, I'm a total addict but I do love it when they show the ones with Grissom in and I love it too when there is a romantic link 'cos I'm a soppy old thing!! Hope you and the family have had another wonderful day by the beach.

  13. Hello Sandra, and all my friends,
    Myra, the card is fab, what a good idea to use those additional bits for boys, I've never thought of that, only for girls. I'll have to look in my stash for "boy" things. In the meantime, I do hope you are where you are supposed to be - did the ten alarm clocks work!!! lol
    Well Patricia, George is now up and I've been able to get to my laptop. It stops me from getting on when he has a lie in (every day).
    Sun is shining here, housework just about done, and then I'm about to go and do a little more weeding. Only about 1/2 an hour's worth.
    Jess, you will be at the hospital and I hope everything is ok on the x-ray.
    Well, the sun is inching round to where I want to be in the garden, so I'm going before it gets too hot.
    See you all later.

  16. Afternoon everyone

    Sandra - so pleased to see you're all having a lovely holiday and doing the most important things - making wonderful family memories.

    Myra - I love love your card - thank you for giving me one or two or three or even four ideas for cards for boys. I always find them so difficult to do so you just may have solved a couple of problems for me.

    Diane - hope you've managed to get Emma out of bed and started her on some of her chores she has to do.
    Oh how I remember having to get Christina ready for Uni - she never was a problem re getting out of bed but didn't we have some awkward times shopping for Uni. Everything turned out OK of course and it became usual for things to disappear when she had been home and gone back. Mum and Dad always made sure she had a bag full of food because of course she couldn't afford to buy such things (or so they thought) and Dad always made sure that she had money for a taxi from the railway station to her digs because of course their 'little Sunshine' couldn't travel on late night buses on her own.
    Thank goodness Nicky didn't go to Uni as I don't know what they would have done for her -being their youngest Grandchild!!!!
    I suppose it has passed down as when I think of what I did for David Robert when he went off into the Army -He being my eldest Grandchild.

    We have a sunny but windy day here and so although we have reasonable temps of middle 20s it feels chilly after the high temps we have had.

    Have managed to get a bday card cut out and made this morning so I think I'll treat myself to an afternoon of reading.
    Enjoy the rest of the day everyone.
    Hugs are on their way. xxxx

  17. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. It is lovely to think that you are able to see what we are up to Sandra. Glad that the weather is getting better for you. How lovely to think that the girls are planning to bring their own families to the same camp site. That proves that they enjoy the break away from the modern world s much as you and Paul do. Have a paddle for me please my lovely x
    Myra, what a great card, I love all of the embellishments and I agree with Sandra that the font is just right for anyone. Have a good day x
    Jess, I hope you didn't have to wait too long to get the x ray, and that you get the results quickly. As you have had the hips replaced before you know what the problem is I'm sure. What is the waiting list like in your area? Short I hope x
    Lynda, have fun today with the various cleaning you have to do! x
    I have got to sit and get all of the paperwork done for our Scout family camp which is in 3 weeks. Not my favourite thing at all as I have to start from scratch this year as I lost all of my documents when my eldest son "sorted out" my laptop!!! I hope you all have a good day my lovely friends. Good luck in Sue's draw. I hope we see lots of our names on the list : ) Take care xx

    1. Hello My lovely,
      boy I am missing you! I will have a paddle for you when I next venture in the sea, I went in the first couple of days and then we had a storm and it was too rough for me, mainly because I don't have the strength in my bad leg to hold me up against the waves, it must be hilarious to on lookers I am sure, luckily Paul and the girls are very patient and kind enough to support be both in and out, for some reason the girls feel put out if I don't go in with them!
      I have had a bit of bad luck today though, I have lost the diamond out of my engagement ring, I was gutted when I spotted it this afternoon, funnily enough, I handed it to Paul yesterday and said I may need a new engagement ring for our twenty fifth wedding anniversary next year as I wear mine every day and the band is wearing quite thin, as I was sat doing a crossword this afternoon I noticed it had gone!
      I wouldn't know where to even think about starting to look either!
      I hope all of the administration for family camp doesn't take you too long, have you and Pat met up yet?
      sending love and hugs

  18. Hello Sandra and Everyone!
    Well I was up on time, out on time and home tired but happy! Just need to repeat the process for the next four days! I'll be a zombie by Friday!
    I got a very big surprise seeing my card today! I made it for a friend's son. He is just at the sort of difficult age - just about to go to senior school! He has no real hobbies as such and I was struggling a bit! I decided to die cut lots of these letters for craft projects this week. Had a lightbulb moment and thought "use the letters for Timothy's card" . It is an XCut Die and I really like the letters as they are just the right size and clear. The embellishments are school utensil buttons from Hobbycraft and some from The Bead and Button Company. The watch charm is stuck into a dazzler setting. Some of the buttons like the calculator had shanks on the back but I just snipped them off.
    Today at Holiday Club we did either Training Shoe designing or Bangles. One little boy was very adamant he was doing a bangle! So that's what he did. Aren't children funny. It's a lovely day so they were able to have outdoor games and snacks were also had outdoors!
    Thank you all very much for your kind comments! The card is very simple really but I think I would use the idea again. I gave it to Timothy's Mum yesterday so we'll wait and see what he thinks!

  21. Hi everyone, didnt have long to wait at x-Ray, it was my GP who sent me for it, and it will be about 10/14 days before he gets the results, then we will see if I need to see an Orthopeadic Consultant, which can take up to 3 months for an appointment. I suppose I can put up with that as Im not too bad pain wise, just yet,
    Then we went to try and get a decent pair of shoes for myself, what with swollen feet and sore hip joint was a disaster, no shoes bought today.
    It has been a glorious day here, really warm, sat outside for lunch and looked at some weeds that needed attention, but it was too hot, to do gardening, tomorrow is another day.
    I keep checking Sues blog for the launch winners, I hope there are some of us in there, take care just now, will pop back later. Xx

    1. JESS:- that's hat bit done. It will the wait for the next bit that will be a right ...... OH! I was going say "pain" but that's rather inappropriate is it not?? Shall we say a right hang on. Hopefully it will not take as long as that. Sorry about the shoes, that's something that will have have to be ultra comfy. Been really hot here today as well. xxx

    2. Jess, thank you. I'm so glad too that you are on the road to getting your hip replacement op! We don't want you in pain. Sorry about the shoes. Maybe next week? Xxx

    3. Hi JESS I have terrible trouble with getting shoes,I did get a pair of Skechers memory foam trainers bit pricey they are comfortable but my feet & legs are my nightmares. Xx

    4. Jess, have you tried " Hotter" shoes they seem to do comfortable, the other is " Ecco " that's what Gillian advices patients to go for, yes expensive but comfortable If you can get a good fit. xxx

  22. Glad you didn't have to wait too long Jess. Hope you don't wait too long for the appointment. Shame about the shoes.
    Well the slow cooker is on and now no worries about dinner tonight. Sunny here but not hot. sympathy card done and posted but forgot to take a cheque to the bank which was one of the main reasons for going to the shops. Now need to do a couple of cards for friends that are having chemo. Might do them this evening

  23. SANDRA good to hear holiday is going well and that the girls are enjoying it Reminded me if our "family" holidays both as a child and a mum! They're the best
    MYRA your card is great It is hard to do cards on request and not know what to put on especially young men
    Um! Who was it having an x-ray Hope it went well
    Think blood sugars dropping so going to get something to eat

  25. Right I am here for a breather!! MYRA:- are you there to join me??
    That's the ironing all done and put away. Nice fresh smell of fresh linen in the airing cupboard. With being lazy over the weekend I had Friday's bedding to do as well as today's. It is really "hot" here today, too hot to sit in the "sun" After I had finished the ironing I did pull a longer into the shade with the thought of 40 winks!
    Not a hope in Hell ...... John's about!!! He was sitting reading .... "Bang" that made me jump, he had killed a wasp. Heart rate back to normal .... just about to nod off ...... he blooming well did the same again. Ok! enoughs, enough, I am now in the cool of the house getting some "peace"
    MYRA:- did not realise you are doing the Crafty Club all week. Oh! man! that's dedication for you. When my Nephew was little he would have wanted to make a bracelet. Hazel and I used to worry about him always wearing beads & bangles. Tell you what ..... now worries needed Michael is a real "man" these days. What time do you want your early morning call tomorrow???
    Oh! gosh!! I hear John moving about in the house that will be the peace shattered. What the heck is he needing now??
    I need a cup of strong Tea and a piece of really sticky, gooey cake!!
    Over at my favourite table, I have a wee foot stool for my feet as well. I might just manage to nod off in here. See you!!! xxx

    I too didn't spot any familiar names on Sue's blog

  27. Myra, I did wonder if it was XCut die you had used for the letters, I to love this die, do you save your spare letters? I do and go to the box when I need letters, some times I have to mix the colours but it works most times.
    Well I wonder if any of the coffee shop ladies will be lucky this time in Sue's draw???
    Going off to Perth to take the Toyota to the garage and pick up the other car from Tammys, she borrowed it on Saturday. Aren't parents handy???
    Been making a couple of cards that are for going to Canada, so have to be flat.

  28. Sandra, check the bed carefully it could be there, if not is it insured under the house insurance? I feel for you as its one of these things you don't want anything to happen to it, my wedding and engagement ring bands are so thin, I got a new wedding ring last year as I didn't want my original one to split.
    Glad you are having a good day. xxx

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sandra, sorry about your diamond, if you can't find it, claim on your house insurance when you get home, and get it replaced. I had to get a new shank on mine a few years ago as it had nearly snapped it was so thin.
    Off to try and make a couple of cards. Might be able to catch up later.
    Take care, xx

    1. SANDRA:- so sorry to hear abut your ring. Hopefully your insurance will cover getting a new one in and maybe getting your band fixed.
      My band was so thin I had the 3 diamonds re-set in a completly different style of band. xxx

  30. That's us getting ready to pop along to J&As. The boys go back to school tomorrow after 71/2 weeks off. We have not seen them since Thursday, seems ages. Will not stay long, they will be early to bed tonight. Can tell you now they will not be sleeping that early knowing them. Mixture of excitement and worrying, about their new teacher. xxx

    2. That's us back, boys fine, Robert looking forward to going back to school. Thomas not so happy, his 2 friends have gone to High Schoo. He's now the oldest and "tallest" person in the school. Taller than the other 14 pupils ..... !!!

  31. Sandra - I have been trying for what seems like hours to leave a comment about your engagement ring! I was trying to leave it underneath where you mentioned it! Hopeless! However I am so sorry you have lost a diamond but it may turn up! If not Insurance is the way forward. I hope you find it if you are sentimental like me which I think you probably are! However please don't let it spoil your holiday . Xxxx

  32. Hello everybody - Jean here - its been a while since I was last on here - just reading through and trying to catch up but not succeeding very well - so much is going on - we have been very busy since we came back from holiday - my son is a builder and always does our jobs for us so we have been having all the little jobs done but he works full time too - so we wait until he can come back to finish things off - has meant all my crafting stash and computer have been moved out and put away for what seems like an age.

    I really hope everyone has kept well as can be - Sandra I see you are on holiday - sounds like you are enjoying the peace and relaxation - sorry to see you have lost your Diamond from your ring - I hope it turns up unexpectedly.

    I am going to start from fresh tomorrow as I don't think I can catch up with everything so Hugs to anyone who has needed them and I will see you all tomorrow.
    Hugs and a good nights sleep to all
    Jean x

    2. Hello Jean! I've missed you . I even checked if you were involved in the Water Problems but I think you are just outside! It's a bit of a pain but I'm thankful for those who look after our water supply and we are very fortunate. Just would like to have my drinking water back ASAP!

Sister rushed into hospital , double pneumonia plus she has sarcoidosis, broken finger on right hand, virus for 7 weeks left with earache but at least can breathe and speak without running out of breathe. That's all for the moment lol. hopefully will be able to take part in what is gong on now.

  37. Hi Sandra. I am so sorry to hear about your lost diamond. I know you are like me and it is the sentimental side not the monetary value that will upset you the most. Stay positive, it may appear but try not to let it spoil your holiday. If it doesn' t then you will have to get the new one a year early. Take care my lovely xx
