A walk in the countryside

 Hello there - well I want to show a card today that I have made for a friend of a friend - a masculine card for a guy who walks and will be 70. This is the card I made so I thought it would fit the masculine challenge at Countryview Challenges perfectly.

I used distress oxides to create the scenery then overstamped using some hobbyart scene it stamps. The verse is from a set also by hobbyart . The tree is a Lavinia stamp.
I believe it was liked so thats always good.
There is still time to link up your masculine makes at Countryview - you can do that here.
Hope you have a great day!
Love and hugs

Santa at Christmas Card club

 Hello there! How are you today? Happy Mother's Day! I am at work all day but am going out to the pub with my mum and girls for tea in the evening - I hope you have a good Mother's day! I had another fair yesterday at Leyland near Preston. Did very well . It was organised in aid of the Ukraine - so it was an even lovelier than ever!

Today its Christmas card club again - the theme this fortnight is Santa. I made 4 cards using products from Crafty Individuals.

The central image is stamped - the others are on paper. I quite like these. 

My mum's are just gorgeous though....

They're both lovely aren't they? I especially like the red one!
Hope you all have a great day!
Love and hugs

Carols at Christmas Card Club

 Hello there! Well we've skipped into March and now we have a Christmas Card Club featuring Christmas carols. I decided to use a Tracy Easson stamp and made 4 very similar cards.

The mouseketeers are singing carols on my cards.

My mum's take on the theme is totally different. She has used clarity stamps on both cards.

Great cards mum!

I look forward to seeing what all my teamies have done.

Have a great Sunday!

Masculine cards

 Hello there - and happy March to you! 

The new challenge over at Countryview Challenges this month is Masculine Birthday. Here are my makes for this theme. 

Both are made using glorious stamps from Dominic Phillips at Aall and Create which can be found in store here.

These cards have already been received and the recipients were really pleased with them. Both were sent as male birthday cards - featuring man's best friend!

Hope you can join our challenge - a £20 voucher is the prize. You can find more inspiration and link up here.
Big hugs
