Cheers to You!

Evening all!

I hope you've all had a good weekend?! I've been busy working, but only 2 days left to work and then I've 5 days off and a pampering spa break to look forward to!

Today I have a male card to show you. Now I'm not a fan of doing men's cards, usually because most of my stash is more suitable for female cards, but it's my FIL's birthday next weekend and so I needed a card for him. This card also meets with the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp this week, where they want to see lots of dots! I can't remember the last time I entered one of my cards into a challenge!


CS: SU Choc Chip, Old Olive & Whisper White

Image: Beer mug from SU 'Cheers to You' set

Sentiment: SU Cheers to You

Tools: SU 'Seeing Spots' stamp set to create the background, Sponges
for distressing

Misc: SU ink pads in Choc Chip, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. Whispers pens, Craftwork cards
card candy, glossy accents

It's the first time I've used both my 'Seeing Spots' and 'Cheers To You' sets. I hate to admit it but they've been sat in a bag waiting to be used for the past 3 months! Both of these are perfect for male cards though. I especially love how you can create your own backgrounds with the Seeing Spots stamps.

I seem to have taken a step back from using cute characters on my cards of late and have adopted the more CAS approach. I still like the cute stamps but I'm enjoying experimenting a bit more, after all not every recipient likes cute!

Well thanks for stopping by. I'm off for an early night. I need to be up early tomorrow to take my OH to his physio appointment. He ruptured his achilles tendon around 11 weeks ago. Thankfully he's on the mend now, but boy has it been a tough 11 weeks! Lol!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
