Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Birthday Beetle.

It;s hubby's nephew's birthday on saturday so i thought i'd best delve into my male stash and make him a card. I think he's 20 this year so in typical young lad fashion he'll probably just grunt and leave it on the coffee table, especially if there's no cash in it!! I know some people struggle with male cards but i quite like doing them, they make a bit of a change from all the girly stuff.

Being a young lad i thought a car would suit. The stamp is from Funstamps and is one of the fist stamps i ever bought , about 4 years ago. The paper is the Papermania "for him" stack, probably as old as the stamp.As always i used promarkers for colouring.I don't really like peel offs but sometimes they can fill in the odd gap.I won't be able to go to Hobbycraft NEC this year but i am going to Hobbycraft Chester today as a compromise (funds won't strech to NEC).If i buy any decent stash i'll do another post when i get back.Sometimes i get loads, sometimes i wonder why i bothered going. Still there's a TK Maxx next door..........                 Hugs Di. xx
