I 'MALE'd this card to my Son in Law

I am the Hostess this week for the
and I chose MASCULINE.
All too often we get carried away making 'Girly' cards
so this week it is the Male's Turn.
I have a girlfriend who is forever looking out for crafty items
for me and most of what is on this card is thanks to her.
The background stamp is from Urban Stamps - Cogs
Inked in several colours from Memento
I also got the metal cogs and inked a few of them
on the background.
I was given a bunch of different types of metal cogs
so worked perfectly for my Son in Law
as he was in the middle of restoring an old car -
hence I thought he could do with a few spare parts
The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping -
Chalkboard Birthday.
Hope I got to you with this challenge and
you get your male card stash updated.
Please checkout what the other Design Teamies
 and our
Guest for March - Jen Mitchell
have made and I look forward to seeing you over at
 Nice to have you with us this month Jen.
So glad you stopped by

I'm Stampin' on Tuesday again

There is another Sketch Challenge over at
so I thought I would put my dies to work
and this is my creation.
I used the basic card stock and embossed my background with
a Darice folder called Henna.
I framed that in front of coloured card stock.
The flowers are from Stampin' Up - Flower Shop.
The colour on one of the flowers look a little red but is
actually burgandy.
I decided after placing them on my card that
they were too nice to cover up so cut out a circle of
acetate from a Spellbinder die so you can see clearly
through it to the flowers.
I popped my sentiment on top of that with a
double punch. My sentiment is from Gina K Designs.
Finished off with a few pearls.
Thanks for dropping in so till next time

Thinking 'SPRING' at the Mod Squad

Again this week I have a Special Friend as Hostess at
Susan Sieracki has asked us to create a card depicting 'Spring'
Maybe she picked this one because of all the 'Winter Blues'
all my overseas friends are experiencing while I have been
basking in 'Sunshine' but I won't gloat as it won't be long
and I will be experiencing those cooler days.

Also over at The Paper Players their challenge is 'Spring'
I have a special reason for making this card.
The flowers I used have been sent to me and are from
SU Flower Shop. I loved this set and I received
a bundle of them in my mail box
Thanks so much Maria...
Here is what I used -
White card stock as my base
Small piece of DP on the side
SU flowers - Flower Shop
Kasazz Leaves
Tim Holtz Stencils
Sizzix butterfly
Pearls Micro Beads and Dew Drops
Sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping.
