I thought it was time i put some photos on my blog so here is a photo of one of my Father's Day cards. I used card from The Paper Mill and paper from Claire Curds signature range, Forever Friends Decoupage, Sentiment from the Forever Friends Sentiment packs and ribbon from my stash. Just to warn you that this is my first time talking about my cards like this so forgive me if i haven't done it correctly, i'm sure i'll get the hang of it!

Anyway hope you like it.

Sunday afternoon!

I'm currently working on my Father's day cards, i've already made 4, and now need to do the remaining 3. I'm actually really enjoying them which is unusual because i normally find men's cards really tricky. I'm finding Claire Curds range which includes the big paper pack and male stamps a real help and the Forever Friends decoupage range simply because there are so many you can use for males. The best tip i can offer when doing male cards though is to get on the blogs, particularly Do Crafts and check out what other people are doing - you can get excellent inspiration from other crafters work.

Over the course of this week i've got to try and get my brother's birthday cards done. All my family have asked me to come up with cards from each of them for him, so that's going to be a challenge, though i have already picked out some things i can use like the lap-top man from Paper Nation and Racing car images from Kanban. So fingers crossed they will turn out okay.

I'll keep you posted on how they turn out!
Hi, this is my first post on my new blog! exciting! I have been making cards for 6 months now so i would definitely say that i am still learning, but I absolutely love card making and i love the feeling you get when you finish a card and think wow i did that! I am new to blogging but am really enjoying checking out other crafter's blogs to get inspiration and ideas for my own cards.
