My last DT card for Little Claire

Aww such a sad post for me... I've been agonising over this decision for a while, but it feels like the right time, so this is my very last post as a DT member for Little Claire.  Although it won't be my last Little Claire card, as there are so many of their stamps amongst my favourites :o)  It's been a great year, working with a lovely and talented team of stampers - I'll miss being on the team with you all!

Our challenge this time is 'cards for men' - just in time for father's day, but it can be anything for a male, it doesn't have to be for father's day.  Here's my card...



Just a quick and simple one from me.  I've used a stamp from the Oh Man! set, coloured it with promarkers and then covered the ties with glossy accents.  The Kraft card is from Stampin' Up, blue card is from Papermill Direct.  Ribbon from my stash and the sentiment stamp is also from Little Claire.

I've been at Busy Bees all day - I was demoing this afternoon, but this morning there was a fab Stampin' Up demo.  I have ordered a couple of things of course lol, and would have liked a lot more!  We made some lovely little boxes - I must take a pic later so I can show it off!  And I must have been having a lucky day because I won the door prize - a lovely little set of stamps called Vintage Labels.  Yay!  And double yay because there are some great little frames in the set that I could use for this week's LIM challenge :o)  Off to catch up with you all...
