Birthday cards...

Recently 2 of my favourite people had their birthdays 1 day apart! My best friend Sharon, who celebrated her 40th Birthday and who i met through crafting and is just the best mate you could ask for, i made this for her birthday, had a bit of a major grunge off with it! but loved the finished effect!


 My next favorite person is my eldest son, and as i usually do girlie cards and stuff i had to think of something that was more 'manly' so using Stampin' Up! 'Loads of Love
stamp set and accessories,  
Which is available at a special price at the moment with Stampin'Up!
for details please email me and you can also order the set for £15.16 instead of the usual £18.95!

Was quite pleased that i can actually do male cards for a change... not a sight of any flowers in sight anywhere! and the only pink is on the parcels in the truck, so think i got away with it!


Thanks for stopping by and see you soon
Take care

Oh male cards are the worst but you did this one with style! So sweet but not girly!
I wish I could do grunge - but it scares me so! LOL! I'll leave that style to you methinks!
Hugs,

Thanks for the card Nicki, just love the grunge look. And it's still on my bookshelf LOL.

Mens cards are always the hardest to make, it's either sports or cars, so the card you made Dan is brill.
