We are showcasing  TIM HOLTZ PRODUCTS this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


I confess – guy cards are my nemesis!  I struggle SO much to create something masculine and almost always find myself crafting under pressure the night before any male birthday or celebration to create a card because I’ve just put it off and put it off!!  Even my card today doesn’t scream “masculine” to me!  I just had to add that little gold heart – it wasn’t right without it, lol!!
I used some distress inks with the Rays stencil from Tim Holtz on watercolour card and then stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Many Messages by Clearly Besotted.  I did try to be masculine – just not sure I pulled it off, lol!!
