Am I the only one ...?

Hello & Happy Weekend!

Am I the only one who enjoys making cards for the men in our lives?! I love a good 'masculine' card challenge so when I saw the current card challenge over on Addicted To Stamps HERE I had to join  in ...

The challenge is to make a card for the men in our lives. Now, the Uniko Studio TIME and EXTRA TIME stamp sets are perfect for making a masculine card! 

I used the current Freshly Made Sketch HERE and seen below for the layout of my card, it came together in under 15 minutes which is perfect at the moment due to how busy things are in The Studio!

I used my 'go to' colour combo for masculine cards! Here's a close up ...

I bought myself some NEW crafting tools to design with ... Tim Holtz Distress Markers, they should arrive today so hopefully I will find some time to 'play' with them today! I have some essential jobs to complete in The Studio which is all good, if you've signed up for the Uniko Studio NEWSLETTER HERE you will be getting an email shortly telling you about some exciting things to come in the few days! 

There is still plenty of time to enter the GIVEAWAY HERE too! I can't believe so few have signed up - it's FREE stuff after all!! It's open internationally so why not have a go!! 

OK, time for me to sign off & get these jobs completed! Thanks for stopping by.

  9. No, you're not the only one! I love a good Man Card, and this one is fabulous! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  10. I enjoy making male cards too - it got a lot easier when my husband patiently explained that not all men like football, golf and fishing (!!), so now I like doing cards with lots of bold shapes and patterns! This is a real cracker - love those gears down the side. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Addicted to Stamps :)

  11. Wonderful! I love the colours and all the boldness. I love your stamps that you have used too. Thanks so much for playing along at ATS xx
