Another BOY card! (sigh)

Hi bloggies!

I am suffering stamping withdrawals again! My sis reminded me yesterday … that everyone has a HUGE ‘to do’ list at this time of the year (so right!) … SO I am going to STOP whinging about mine! I do need to make some more Christmas Cards … so hopefully … I will have something different from MALE cards to show you! In the meantime … this was for my b-i-l’s b’day …

I have had a run of male cards … and I really feel like I need to do something female for a change! I compensated by adding a Christmas banner with pink fairies!!! 😉 😀 This was a super Q&E CAS card. A star mask … a little sponging … a splodge & silhouette image! Easy peasy! I hope he liked it!

Take care … I popped down to Leonie’s yesterday … helped her cut for her class … and then we worked on the invitations for her daughter’s wedding. I brought home a pile to do … and would like to get those done for her asap! Plus … work work work to keep on top of! Oooops! I said I wasn’t going to whinge!!! 😉 Have a great day!

    Love what you have done here. Great spin with the stars – awesome! Love how it is another male card & colours etc.
    Hope you get more off your ‘to do’ list today, inlcluding those invitations – that is what happens when you are so talented! – you have to share your skills 🙂
    I am off to school for a Year 2 graduation/picnic/party afternoon with a giant slide and party games (!!) – huge birthday party to celebrate Jesus’ birthday for infants. Should be fun, … but there goes Tuesday! (will be out from 11am to 4pm!).
    Thanks for sharing…

    – Hope you enjoyed your end of year activity with year 2. I feel really disappointed with Tongarra. Apart from a parent organised yr 6 “after party” (not Sandy) … there was no end of year ANYTHING!!! Sandy didn’t go on one excursion this year … and there was absolutely nothing else for end of year. I remember at SSCS there was a different activity organised for EVERY grade. Picnics, ice skating, beach trips, bowling etc etc! But … he did come home from school today … very excited that holidays have begun! Invitations all finished. I think it took me about 12 hours consistently. Hugs xx

    I’m sure he liked it! Where do you get these great male ideas! Love to pick your brain sometime!!! BTW – go on and have a great whinge – we all need to sometimes! I give you permission…..heh,heh!
    Love your posts!

    – Isn’t it annoying when you reply to a comment … and it disappears into cyberspace. Take 2 — Thanks for the a-ok about whinging. It is nice to ‘vent’ sometimes to our friends! And … thanks for all you lovely comments recently. If you want some more ‘male’ ideas … click on ‘male’ in my categories! Hugs xx


  3. Wow! I love the sponged stars on this Andrea. Great card.

    I hope you get on top of things!

    Love Jenny x
    – I am sooooo on top of things … that I totally forgot about Tracey’s house move yesterday. After promising to help … it totally slipped my mind!!! I feel sooooooo bad! I hate to let my friends down. I know you were there! I’m sorry I wasn’t! Thanks Jenny! Hugs xx

    Another fab boy card Andrea. I love the spongind and masking you did. The stars look awesome inside the bigger stars! Such a neat technique. :o)
    – Masking is always a winner, Monika! Looks really professional … when it is really a super easy technique! Hugs xx

    The last thing I feel like when I haven’t stamped for a while is to have to do a male card! So uninspiring. I finally got to do some cards on Sunday and I had to do Gavin’s, though that was ok as it’s a special one! Also managed to do two sets of Chrstmas cards. One lots was a quick and easy design and the other a bit trickier and cute! I have about 36 now… just a few more to go I hope. Might end up having to take on holidays to write at the last minute. We’ll have to see what next week brings.
    – Well … you are ahead of me! I only have about 28 done! And … another 20+ needed! I need to get onto that asap! Looking forward to seeing your card for Gav’s 50th! Glad you had some time to stamp! Hugs xx

    A great male card, love the colours you have used to, hope your schedule clears soon, lifes at one speed at the moment I think – Full throttle lol. Take some time out for you though, hugs melxx
    – I imagine life is full throttle for most of my blog buddies! You are probably still recovering from all the prep for your son’s birthday! I must make sure my other bloggies see what you accomplished for this amazing party … here is the link for anyone who is interested … Melissa is simply a super mum! Take care, hunny! Hugs xx

    Oooohhhhhh….I DO LOVE this one Andrea. The masking looks fantastic and is a great accompaniment to this stamp.
    I hope you do get things checked off your list. Know that many of us out there are getting there slowly but surely. Take care of you. ooxx
    – Hey hun! I am gradually marking things off my BIG list. Most of the organisation for Gav’s party is done. Now we just need to pray for good weather … seeing we are having a Brekky Beach BBQ. Hugs xxx

    Fabulous!!!! Love the masked & stamped stars Andrea & the silhouette image with the “splodge” backdrop. Brilliant male card & fabulous colours. Keep the male cards coming!!! Hugs 🙂
    – Another today, Helen! (Gav’s birthday card from me!) I think you will like that one! 😉 Hugs xx
