Man Tree

Hi everyone. I hope you're all feeling wonderful and have had a great day. I've got another card to show you and it's........a man's card! I find them so hard to make which is why they're so rare on my blog but I bought these stamps and made this card for my stash a while ago and I really like how the card turned out. I forgot to post it so here it is and what's more there's no glitter in sight, lol!!

and here's another shot.

The stamps from Little Claire, a great little company with some really different stamps, are Man Tree and Manphabet alphabet and number set. The sentiment stamp is from a company I just can't remember the name of and I 've put the stamps away somewhere! I used my Copic Ciao pens for the colouring. A really simple layout on an 6" square card, some kraft card and core'dination card.  

I'd like to enter the following challenge:-

Little Claire Challenge- A Birthday Card

Stuart and me had great time yesterday with my youngest son, Kieran, and his lovely girlfriend, Zoe, in Newcastle. It's wonderful to see them settled in their new home and jobs but I still miss my son not being at home more, empty nest syndrome or what?! 

So that's it for me. Thank you so much for your visit. I love reading your comments and really look forward to getting them. Have a good evening and a great crafty week.

        Sending you all a big hug,

  3. Great card Debra, love your fab tree... I know I'm very strange, but I love making male cards :o) Hugs, Lisa x

  4. This is a fab card Debra what a great stamp its just perfect I could think of a lot of my males who would adore this they are sports mad. Hope you enjoyed Newcastle at the weekend its a great city I love the shops especially Fenwick's. Missed you at the GNPE this year but to be honest I was a bit disappointed not the same in the smaller hall. Love and Hugs Carole x

  5. Debra, what a great image! Perfect for a birthday!

  6. Really lovely male card, great colours on that fab image. With my DT hat on thanks for playing at LC.

  7. Hi Debra, Wow...this is such a great guy card! So clever having a tree dripping with all of the equipment they love the most! You did a great job putting the card together! The coloring and "manphabet background are perfect. I'm glad there is a golf club...wish there was a football though...but I guess I could add one. Now look what you've done! I think I might need this stamp. I'll have to ask my friend from High Wycombe to look for one next time she goes to a show. She's brought me some Little Claire stamps before. They have some really good ones! Love, Janet

  8. I find male cards hard to make too but this is absolutely perfect. Such a fantastic image and I love your design.


Thank you so much for visiting and leaving me a comment. I really appreciate you taking the time.
