Mainly for men

Why is it every time I get used to  updates on my computer it goes and puts on 
more updates that  I have to work to find my way around. Grrrrr!

Today I have some male cards to show you, I was really pleased with these.

The base card were a blue/grey

and I embossed on a steel coloured shimmer card.

Teamed that with SW Pierced flags and Spellbinders Script.
Plus a few paper studs that I have had for years
The embossing folders were
We R Memory Keepers.
Quilted and Geometric 

Having a lot of male cards to make for the Aged Care Home
I like to keep them plain and simple.

Thanks for dropping in.

Stamped backgrounds

I was given a pile of out dated copy paper which I have been using as inserts for my cards.
It is beautiful paper some textured some linen and the scraps 
I have been using to take notes on but it seemed such a waste
to do this so I have begun to stamp onto it and this is
what I have started to do with the scraps.

I also used some old stamps.  The rose above is a PSX
and the little leaf a Hero Arts.

The roses from this card are Stamp It the larger is 1998
and the small one 2000, again I used the little hero Arts leaf.

I am entering the blue one into.

Thanks for dropping in

Take one 12 x 12 sheet.

Yes this is  what I did.  
After doodling around on Y Tube where I watched a video
on making 6 cards using one sheet of 12 x 12
I decided to take up the challenge myself.

The yellow card  pieces where all scraps and the flowers etc were
all bits that have been sitting around waiting to be used.

This one has 4 pieces of yellow card and the butterfly must be at least 10 years old.

Spot the flowers from the border in the corners.

Couldn't believe my luck that these flowers were a perfect match.

Managed to make this flower from some left over sponged gloss card
and the butterfly was such a perfect match.

Am entering this in:

I don't know what this year holds for my family with DH now completely immobile.
He spends his day in a big chair that is back breaking to push around, 
sleeping most of the time.
So I know you will understand that I don't have much time visit or post.

A Happy New Year
