More masculine than the last attempt!!

Hey there people.

I am so very sorry that my posts have been so infrequent of late. My diabetes has not been playing fair of late, partly due my manic life at the moment, so hopefully we can come to an agreement soon!!

My DH had a birthday not so long ago, and after the not so masculine cake card debacle, I had to bloke a card up a bit more!! One of the best things about having friends who craft is that you can share their stuff too....therefore expanding what you have available to you!! I had a play date recently at my bestie's place and this gave me the gusto to formulate a more masculine card. I saw this card on SCS some time ago and thought that I may be able to use the basics of it someday. My Bestie had recently aquired the Fleur-de-lis Cuttlebug embossing folder from a win on Swap Sisters and the cogs started turning.

This is what the cogs produced...

I coupled the embossing folder with the fleur-de-lis from Carte Postale and the Weathered BGS. It came together so easily. Here is the finer details of the squares.

I stamped the BGS in Bashful Blue and then stamped the other images in Soft Suede over the top. I was so very happy with the was DH....cause he had a birthday card!!!

Thanks for popping by again. Hope you are having a crafty kind of day.

You are a star, hunny! This is a perfectly appropriate BLOKEY card! But ... I am not happy to hear that you have not been behaving yourself. You must take more care of yourself and take it easy! Promise???? Hugs Andrea xxx

Love your card, you make such wonderful creations with those stamps, I seem to remember one earlier on that looks super duper fantastic too.
