Cheers !

I've made this card for my other half's brother as it's his birthday on Wednesday of this week. I used the sketch from Cards for Men, I've swapped the circle for the oblong (hope I'm forgiven!) and I'm also putting it in for the Cute Card Thursday challenge which is spots and dots. I stamped the main image, which is a Personal Impressions stamp, with black Memento ink then shaded it with Pro Markers. I then cut it out with deckle edged Nestabilities and sponged Distress inks around the edge before removing the die. The centre strip is brown Bazill card that I've put through my Cuttlebug using the Distressed Stripes embossing folder.

The spotty background is a piece of white card that I've embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder then I've rubbed Vintage Photo Distress ink over the top. The paper is Basic Grey and the sentiment is from a Papermania set of stamps.
I'm a little ahead of myself tonight so I think I'm going to sit down and watch Wild at Heart that I recorded last night. The story line is a bit weak but I love to see the scenery, and it's always sunny !
Thanks for looking


  1. I wish it was sunny here!
    Another fab card, love the way you've shaded the image leaving white. Looks great

  2. OMG Sue that is so spooky - I've been making a card with the same stamp tonight! I thought I was seeing things when I saw your card at the top of my reading list. This has got to be the best stamp for man cards - I love it. Love your card too!
