Tuesday 9 February 2016


Another week has flown by, and it's time for the next challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. This time we would like to see your 'Valentine/Love' themed, male orientated cards.
I must confess, that my card is cased from one made by the lovely Linda Parker, as I always struggle doing love cards that don't look too girlie.
The card has been made using the new amazing die from Stampin Up - Bloomin' Hearts, and the stamp set and matching punch - Grateful Bunch. I know I'm biased, but I do love the quality of the Stampin Up products. The flowers and sentiment have been heat embossed.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Crafty Boots - love is in the air
Crafty Cardmakers - love/Valentines
Get Creative - hearts
Incy Wincy - love
The Paper Girls - Valentines/love
Crafter's Cafe - monochrome
Crafting Musketeers - monochrome
Paper Creators Crafts - it must be love
Amusing - hearts
One Stitch At A Time - love is in the air
A Gem Of A Challenge - love is in the air
Challenge Up Your Life - no designer paper
My Time To Craft - love is all around
Brown Sugar - Valentine/love
Fussy and Fancy - monochrome
Aud Sentiments - use a love sentiment
Many thanks for stopping by, and I'll be back soon with some more cards.
