It’s a girl thing….

Well Hello again! Lovely that you have stopped by, I love visitors!  Have you been enjoying the sun? Today has definitely been cooler but hasn’t the weather been spectacular?  I love the sun and did manage to spend a little time in it but unfortunately I have also had to go to work….time for sitting in the sun over!

What do I have for you today? Well over at That Craft place it is challenge time again and this time the challenge is “It’s a Girl Thing”.  Well, I don’t have girls, I have boys! Two of them so I was flummoxed but I do love a good digi and the one I have used is from Sassy Cheryl  who is a designer for this weeks Challenge Sponsor Kraftin’ Kimmie! I chose to go very girly with the pink and flowers but felt I needed to tone it down and added the blue. The flowers are made with Le Crea Multi dies and the paper is Bo Bunny.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers and sponged the edges of the image with a light touch of Paris Mist ink pad from Memento as are the petals of the flowers. And naturally, for a girls card I needed Glamour Dust to finish! I have left a sentiment off for the moment as I may need this card shortly for a birthday.

All products came form That Craft Place and here is the card….

For the men….and boys…..

Well here we are again – weather been a bit kinder and I have managed to get out into my garden and clear up some weeds – just the rest of the garden to work on now!!! and of course I am not working this weekend but it’s heaving down outside! makes me wish for sunnier climes….

The challenge! Yup it’s time for the men and boys and with Fathers day coming next month I am going to need all the inspiration I can get…. here are my entries….image0255

So this first card features one of the amazing Visible Image stamps – Edgar. He is a such a dashing chap. I love his sartorial elegance with the cane….I teamed this up with some Tim Holtz tickets, Stampin’ Up! card stock , cotton ribbon and DSP and some gorgeous Bo Bunny paper. this is called Cambridge stripe  and is the flip side – they always have two fantastic sides making it usually hard to choose which side to have upper most – but in this case I totally love the flip side!  I used Pro Markers to colour Edgar in with.image0254

This second card I made as a Thank you for the trainer we have had for six weeks at my new job. Again it is a Visible Image stamp – Edward – he is about my favourite I think. I wanted to team colours up for this project as I had coloured the image with my Tim Holtz Distress inks before I chose the paper etc so here we have Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles, Stampin Up card-stock, ribbon and twine, Bo Bunny Boo Hooligans paper, a Joy Crafts die cut and emboss paper scroll and some metallic findings. Phew!!! The edges are finished with some  gilding wax to shine up the edges and tie in the metallic finish. I really enjoyed this one and the guy who received loved it too which is always the aim!

These cards are for the ‘For the Men’ challenge over at That Craft Place and you can give the girls a ring for the products where they will be delighted to help you choose your favourites!  Why not have a go yourself and share your makes over at That Craft Place blog? We would love to see what you make!
