A Nephew’s Birthday!

Hi there my blog friends! 😀

I am so happy! Popped by this morning to find 10 comments waiting! I am so excited … and will make sure I respond to each when I have finished this post! 😀 So … I have shown you 2 of the cards I made last Saturday … and have another for you today. Did I mention that I had a “run” of male cards to do???

So … I have to thank dbarry (gallery in SCS – 7 Aug 2010) for her lovely card that was the inspiration for this one! I was a little stumped with so many male cards to make … and reached for my trusty Extreme Surfer stamp! I trolled through the ES gallery at SCS for some ideas. The main image is black embossed and the wave is clear embossed. Lots of easy sponging and voila! This was for my newphew’s 17th birthday (that happens to be today!) … good choice, I think!? 😉 Lots of end of month bookwork to do … so I better skedaddle! C U soon! Hugs xx

    HI Andrea! You’ve done it again!!!!! What can I say – just that its fabulous!! The way you`ve sponged it draws the eye straight to the embossed image!! Getting addicted to your blog – having to look here for my daily fix of inspiration and being wowed! I have 3 nephews, so I know where to look now for ideas for their birthday cards and sporting achievement hoorays!!!

  3. You are just rocking these boys cards – perfect for teens which is what I need inspiration for!
    – I know … teen boys are the hardest! But … a surfer is hard to beat … I think! Hugs xx

    Another fabulous “man” card Andrea!!! You rock on creating male designs – you make them look so easy! Love the halo effect of the sponging, looks like your surfer dude is right in the middle of a huge tube & the twine is a perfect bit of “man style” ribbon, lol. Hugs 🙂
    – Thanks Helen! Sometimes a ‘male’ card does end up looking good! I liked this one, too! Hugs xx
