Simple mans card

Happy Bank Holiday, managed to have a lie in until 9am this morning, but still feels strange with no boys arguing in the house!!!

This is a simple mans card I made for my friend to give to her husband the other week. I am going a bit overboard with the Cheers to You set lately but it is great for mens cards especially!!! The little beer mugs are fab for colouring! The paper is from the Simply Sent Card Elements kit (page 75 if you have a catalogue!) Its a great little kit, contains stash to make 9 cards which are great for male cards and great as a gift for someone just starting out!

As you can see on this photo I have stamped the "head" of the beer again and then mounted on foam pads. Beer mugs coloured in with my Stampin Up markers in Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Apricot Appeal and Barely Banana, then I have gone round with Bashful Blue round the edges to make them POP! Husband wording done on the Cricut!
Off to met my matey at the craft shop now!!! Then back to the grindstone, loads of wedding stuff to do!
Have a good un!
