Janice's Snooker Card
Birthday card for Luke
Cheryl Dad Card
Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I have gone back through the files to find you another selection of Men Cards to inspire you all.
We have Janice's card first,
A Fabulous Snooker inspired 90th Birthday card, I love the comedy feel to the card, also the scalloped edge on the card really echo's the shape of the snooker balls really well, the little gold dots on the scallops finishes the card off really well too, thanks so much for sharing your card with us Janice xxxx
Next is a card that I made for Becca's best friend Luke, Luke is one of those lads that's not really into drinking beer, not into fishing or football, so therefore really tricky to find cards for, so I went for this simple design, using (CE) Basket Weave Embossing Folder for the background, which I mounted onto some kraft card, the Kraft card goes really well with blue, I used a Spellbinders Scalloped oval for the sentiment, the Stars where Die-Namics die I think, they are a nesting dies in a set of three, but perfect size to use as embellishments, I made a Cross design with a contrasting Blue ribbon and used 3 star Brads to embellish the sentiment area.
I hope that it gives you a little inspiration.
Last up today, we have Cheryl's Dad card, Cheryl has used a really cool background on this card, she has then used (CE) Bevelled Glass Striplet Die, it looks like Cheryl has used the die as a mask to stencil through, or just use the cut away pieces of the die, either way it is really effective and looks almost mechanical with the addition of the cogs at the bottom. They look like the Spellbinders Cogs dies, but I could be wrong.
All in all this is a Fabulous man card, perfect for any occasion. Thanks Cheryl for sharing your design with all of us xxxx
Well I can't believe its Monday again, where did the weekend go?? We have a busy week this week in the 'Riley' house, Matt has hospital today, I have hospital tomorrow at the ENT clinic, not sure why, the phoned on Friday to say that they have been asked to give me an appointment asap, so I am guessing that they may have seen something when the studied my CT scan properly, I guess we will find out tomorrow, the Consultant that discharged me didn't mention going to that clinic at all, very curious! Hopefully seeing Sue on Wednesday, Pat is off to Essex for a week to visit friends, hope you have a lovely time Pat.
Then on Friday Lucy is going away with School for a week on a Music Residential Trip, they practice for a big summer concert on the last day of term, I have to say their Orchestra is out of this world and really makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, so I am super proud that she is part of it. I am not sure how either her or Sophie will get on however as they have never spent the night apart, so seven nights will be a good test, being Identical twins they are inseparable usually,
I have made it quite clear that we will not be making any mercy dashes to Wales to pick her up, as we have asked her many times if she is sure she wants to go.
Well we will see!!!
Special hugs for our Maureen, you are in all of our thoughts xxx
Love and hugs
