A Trio of BOY Birthday cards!


Birthday Surprise BB'13 (3)

Hi again my friends!

Phew! I didn’t realise it would be so hard to reach out to my bloggies after such a long break! But … I am very thankful for those who have stuck with me and welcomed me back to blog land! 😀 Warms the cockles of my heart! 😉 So … I thought I would share a trio of MALE cards with you guys today! If you are like me … male cards are not your favourite type of card … so ideas are always welcome!

Birthday Surprise BB'13 (1)

pin it 100This one you will probably recognise from my current blog banner. Birthday Surprise BB'13 (4)And … yet … I hadn’t actually blogged this one before! So for those who had noticed and were interested … here it is! The inspiration was from a cool card I found on Pinterest that was pinned from “Liz Armstrong“. The cute stamps are from an adorable set called “Beach Babe” from  Tiddly Inks and my card recipe with all the details is at the end of this post!

pin it 100The next card was another Pinterest CASE … this time from Ardyth Percy-Robb. I have definitely changed elements on this one … but the design was inspired by Ardyth’s card. I must admit … when you are crafting very infrequently like I am at the moment … it is hard to get the mojo going. Pinterest CASE-ing is always a good kick start!

Well … my shingles are finally starting to settle and I am beginning to sleep a little better … so things are looking up! Hopefully life will get back to some sense of normality after all the unexpected happenings around here since February! Winter is here … and the weather is just delightful. I am hoping for a nice ‘short & warm’ one! Hope you enjoyed checking these cards out! Back with more another day! 🙂 Have a great day!

    Male cards are definitely not my favorite – but isn’t it funny that a simple splat and sentiment can do the trick?!

      I think it is still an amazing skill to get CAS right! You have the knack of doing that Kim! Somehow my own designs always seem overdone. That’s why I tend to CASE so often! Hugs xxx
