I thought it was about time I put something on my blog, so this is a card for my friend at work a mad keen fan of JLS. I used the music cuttlebug embossing folder with coordination's card and distressed it. The image is Dotties world...(Home), which has been coloured with copics. I hope she will like it and thanks for looking.

2nd Male card

This card was for my SIL's Birthday, another LOTV's image.
The papers are papermania Secret garden and the stamp set is Clare Curd's boys set.
The beer has been frothed with Tulip puffy in white and heated. The hessian is my own....
The sentiment 'HB' is computer generated. The image is distressed with Old paper ink by Tim Holtz.
Hope you like it!

First of 3 male cards

A Birthday Card....
This is an LOTV image, distressed and chalked in grey.
The papers are the lovely Kioshi in two greens and a plain green card for the matting and picture mounts which I made. There is also grey card on which the image sits!.
The sentiment I believe came from Ikki's blog as I had saved it with her name on!!.
Hope you like it!

Will she say yes!!

This card took ages as I faffed about the colours I am still not happy with the wall it should not be so orange but I have at least made an easel card;... my first.

I chose the LOTV stamp as my son was proposing on their holiday abroad and he had the ring with him....good job customs never looked in his case or the cat would have been out of the bag..so to speak!!...So not flowers or on a wall, OOpps not glasses either!!...but can you see where I'm going with this!!

My son does have dark hair and she is fair so good reason eh!!

My minds eye was used for the paper pieced hat set at a slight angle and for the bottom and middle which was punched with Martha Stewart's doily lace punch.
The boy's hair is decoupaged and the stamped image was coloured with copics, promarkers,polychromos and sandsodor....never can make up my mind!!!

Framing the stamp is brown card using nesties labels 2 dies, Pearls, lace, stickles and 3D gloss for the glasses. The letters are cuttlebugged with curls and swirls and baby face die.There is so much to write!!!! I will leave with a close up of the glasses!! Hope you like it an enjoy my muddling post!!.....especially as the close up is not here it's at the top ( I think!!).

Sorry I can't do the award thingy!!?

I have very kindly been given an award by Whisper http://whisperscards.blogspot.com/
and now one from Julie
I would very much like to respond to these but I am clueless as to how you get the links etc. I end up wasting a day and not achieving anything so if it's OK with you two I will post a card in your honour ( that's if I can manage that without deleting everything lol ).
Now all I need is some Mojo!!
