A birthday card for Joe

This is my DT card for Cards for Men which I'm very late posting.  It's going to be a birthday card for my Nephew, Joe, who's 10 at the end of the month.  Hopefully he'll like it.

We have a fab challenge over at Cards for men this time.  The theme is 'Boys & Their Toys' and the sponsor is my good blogland friend, Claire, from Hope Jacare.  The prize is 3 digis of your choice.  If you haven't seen claire's work before, pop over now and have a look.

Also pop over to Cards for Men where you'll get all the details of the challenge and you'll get to see the wonderful cards made by all my teamies.

My card base is a 6" square from Craftwork Cards (so is the Red Card Candy).  The backing paper is DCWV - Boys will be Boys.  My image is Skate from Hope Jacare which I've coloured with promarkers.  The mounts are Cajun Craze from Stampin Up and that's it I think.

Cards for Men (Recycled)

Happy New Year!  I'm pleased to be back with a new challenge card for Cards for Men.  The theme this time is 'Reycling'.  You'll find lots of ideas over on the main post and the prize on offer is £10 gift voucher from the wonderful, One Stop Card Crafts.

My card is a recylcled Christmas Card from 2010.  I cut out lots of nice bits last Christmas with the intention of making new Christmas Cards this year.  As it turned out, they never got made, but I'm determined to do better this year.  I rooted through my 'scraps' box to find the gold card for mounting.  The Ribbon/Craft strip were off our Christmas Cake.  The base is Stampin Up (Chocolate Chip) and the gold Candi were in my stash.  All in all I was very pleased with myself.  I liked the finish so much that I have a similar design set up ready for my son's birthday card.

Hope you like it too and I'd love to see your creations over at Cards for Men.
