Cards for the men in your life!

Good morning!

Thought I would show you something a bit different today! I have been crying out for some new mens stamps and Stampin Up have come up trumps with lots of things for men in the new mini! I particularly like the single A La Carte stamps, the Motorcycle and the Boat which I am showing today - Sail Away

I have made a couple of cards with it so far

The first one is using Always Artichoke and Early Espresso, its only a small card, the stamp is a nice size and looks nice if you colour it or left as I have on this one

I decorated the inside of the card, have been enjoying doing this lately, adds an extra touch to your cards and uses up scraps!!

This one is my favourite, more nautical in its colouring. The colour combo is Basic Grey, Night of Navy and Real Red.
The sentiment is from the Basic Phrases stamp set

I used my blender pens to add a bit of extra colour to the stamp on this one.

Hope you like the cards, I will be back with something a bit more girlie tomorrow!!!!!

Forgot to say my boys are on school hols now for 2 weeks, we are having them early in Leeds!!
