One for the Boys

I am so loving the new Lili of the Valley Vintage Boys sketch pad.  They make it so much easier to create male cards, as I think they are the hardest ones to make. The sketch I've used is called Playing Golf.  The papers are Nitwit Collections Petal Fresh, and the sentiment is Stampin' Up.  The buttons are Papermania. I've entered this card into 2 challenges. Cupcake Craft Challenges 244 - Boys and Creative Inspirations Challenge 216

Flutter By Wednesday's #239

I'm pleased with how this card came out.  I used the new stamp set I bought recently from Clearly Besotted a new company started by Stephanie Wincott. The stamp set I've used is called Flutterby Dreams.  The background paper is Stampin' Up Rich Razzleberry.  I also inked the butterflies in the same colour, and was lucky enough to also have a ribbon that matched.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday #205

As soon as I saw this weeks sketch I knew it would work perfectly for the card I needed to make.  An inspector I have worked with for many years is retiring this month.  I've only been his admin support for the last 3 years but I'll really miss working with him as he is such a nice person.  I'm also green with envy wishing it was me that was retiring.  I've used Nitwit Collections Petal Fresh paper pad, another of the Lili of the Valley Vintage Boys sketch pad designs.  These designs are brilliant and perfect for making male cards.  The sentiment is also Lili of the Valley.

Birthday Wishes

My friends hubby is celebrating his birthday this week.  Unfortunately he has a long term back problem after being pinned by a heavy cage he was delivering to a shop. This accident ended up damaging 2 of the discs in his back, and his back has flared up again and he is in agony, so I don't really know whether he will enjoy this birthday or not.  I've used Country Gent Nitwit Collections paper pad (love these pads). The image is from the new Lili of the Valley sketch pads. This one is called Set 1 Vintage Boys.  The sentiment is also Lili of the Valley and I've used Whimsy Stamps Spell it out for the name.  I've used the sketch from Sketch N Stash Challenge 113, and I'm going to enter this card in the Papertake Weekly Challenge Anything Goes.
