Crafty Cardmakers 23





It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight we'd like to see your 'cards for men'. This one was easy peasy for me as all I'm making at the moment is male cards, so I had lots to choose from... actually I lost my ability to choose and sent a load to Vix for her to choose for me lol :o)

Both of my cards have been made for orders, for customers with quite different requirements. The first wanted the 'daddy's little princess' message, with a baby girl image, the second just doesn't do 'cute', so I always have to leave my comfort zone a bit when I make cards for her.

I've used a Mo Manning image for my first card, coloured with promarkers. The papers are MME, with coredinations cardstock. The 'princess' sentiment is a digi one from Create with TLC, the circle one was a freebie from The Creative Cottage. Raffia lace from my stash. For the second card I've used another freebie circle sentiment from The Creative Cottage, nestie stars, coredinations cardstock (and some dark brown cardstock from my stash) sanded back. The 'dad' paper is a download from Summer Driggs.

I'm also entering my cards for the following challenges:
