Male Cards

Happy Saturday Everyone
Two new but very basic cards I made this afternoon for a couple of upcoming *male* birthday cards. Both the recipients are not all that into handmade cards so I wanted something simple but nice. Not sure there is too much inspiration here for anyone but I wanted to share non the less. Wet, windy and getting just a tad wild here so tomorrow should be another great day to perhaps spend some time in my craft room... well I hope! With back to school on Tuesday coming up quick I might have to dedicate some time to actually organising the last of the kids books! Have a great evening everyone. Hugs Shirl

LCOM Sketch #3

Good Afternoon All Well it is that time again already! I have been so slack blogging already this year! I really need to get my act together! I am so loving our new approach on Let's Capture Our Memories with one sketch being used to create both cards and layouts! It does show you just how versatile a sketch can be. So often we see a sketch and it is labeled card or layout and so we only think of it in that light. Please be sure you head on over to LCOM's blog to check out all the very talented ladies creations this week.
Products used- Bazzill cardstock - brown and white, Martha Stewart punch, polka dot embossing folder, brown ribbon, kaiser bling, Stampin' Up Polka Dot Parade DSP, Punch Bunch Owl Stamp, Betsy Blossoms leaf stamp, Old Olive ink pad and Old Olive cardstock. Hugs Shirl

LCOM Sketch 1

Hi Everyone Well after what seems a really long break we are back at Let's Capture Our Memories with a fresh start to a whole new year. To show you just how versatile sketches can be we are kicking off the new year by using one sketch (be it a card sketch or layout sketch) and all creating something different. So each week when you stop with your cup of coffee to check out LCOM's blog you will see a range of cards, 12x12 layouts, 8.5x11.5 layouts and some Off the Page projects as well. All created from one sketch! This week I have created a card from the sketch (which was originally a layout sketch)that I'd love to share with you all:
So please make sure you head over to LCOM to welcome the new DT ladies and check out this week's amazing creations. Have a scrappy day! Hugs Shirl
