Cards for Men

With Father's Day fast approaching I thought I would take the opportunity to showcase a couple of men's cards I have done this week. Both cards are using stamps from Stampin Up and Inkadinkado.
This first card is using the yacht from 'Set Sail'. The image has been stamped in Brilliance Black and coloured with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with odourless mineral spirits (OMS). I have used plain white card, Bazzill and designer paper from Making Memories. The anchor charm just finished it off nicely.

The gorgeous puppy is from the 'For Father' set, it is such a joy to colour. Once again the image is stamped in Brilliance Black and Prismacolor pencils were used once again. I am unsure where the designer paper came from but the base card is SU's basic grey and the olive is from Bazzill. This time I embellished using a corner punch and simple eyelets. I hope you like these Male cards, I know a lot of people struggle making cards for the men in their life the key is keep it simple, I find striped paper quite masculine and works a treat. With so many great papers out there finding some for your male cards will be easy.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real money.
It's all about how to select a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.
