Beside the sea

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is enjoying this warm weather we have been having.

I have another male card today made with a stamp I haven't used in ages, mainly because all my male relatives have had a card made with it at some point, but I really enjoy colouring this and it reminds me of holidays!  I've kept it fairly simple so the image stands out.

Items used:

Stamp - Kanban (sorry I don't remember the name) and sentiment tag LOTV
Papers - LOTV Candles and Cake
Card - Papermill Direct
Twine from stash

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Penny Black and More - Favourite Stamp (one of them! I have used it a lot although it's not being blogged so it must be)
My Mum's Craft Shop - Ink it up
Country View Challenges -Only Men Allowed

It's all about the footie!

Good evening everyone!

It looks like my football-free zone (home) has an invader!  This craziness that is the world cup is creeping in! Even the girls at work have organised a sweep-stake!  So as a nod to the occasion, here is another football card, although this is VERY C&S for me, I almost feel like I've cheated, but my nephew is a football fan so I think this will suit.

Items used:

Stamp - Penny Black
Sentiment stamp - Papermania
Coloured with ProMarkers
Card - Papermill Direct

It's a little difficult to tell from the picture but all I've used is 2 pieces of white card with one raised up on foam pads.  I edged the top piece with blue ProMarker.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for popping by this evening, have a good week.
