Some Male Cards and its stopped Raining!!

Yey its Friday tomorrow and another weekend ahead. Looking forward to a restful weekend with some extra time to craft. As many of you know i have had a bad week, it hasn't improved any but im looking forward and trying to stay positive! Its finally stopped raining, for how long i dont know according to the weatherman we are in for a pretty lousy weekend weatherwise.

I am always struggling with male cards bit i have found these gruffy bears perfect , reminds me of my eldest boys, pizza and coke, their dream dinner! The papers are from basic grey the christmas figgy pudding pack i believe. It was the last couple of sheets i had left, so thats one pad done tons more to go.

Am also try to build up a stock of boys cards, basically as i have far more nephews than i do nieces!!! I love this Sally-Ann digi download, which comes ready coloured, perfect for a quick card. I have distressed the edges and used some of the papers from the Greeting Farm. Stars embossed and cut out using my nestabilities.

Another quickie using one of the fabulous Lili of the Valley die cut images. These are pefectly coloured and went with the gingham papers perfectly. That the last of the gingham too!

Well this is just a quickie post, have a 18th and 40th birthday card to make this afternoon. Trust me to leave it to the last minute again.

Have a wonderful afternoon, hugs Linda x

Fabby cards Linda, I so admire all of your wonderful layouts!
Sorry to read you are feeling down, you know where I am if you want a chat. It's raining here at the moment, always seems to start just as I have to pick the children up from school and end up getting soaked, typical heh!?!
Hope you get some good crafty time over the weekend.
