It's a man's world!

Right...I'm back...the card was actually near enough finished!

So, the challenge set by Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week is "It's a man's world", as you know I'm not keen on men's cards....I can't really use pinks on them! However, whenever I come across a challenge for a man's card I try to enter because as we all know....practice makes perfect! If you're stuck for ideas take a peek at the blog and see the gorgeous DT cards!

You'll no doubt recognise the image as I've used it before. It always reminds me of my boyfriend, so I love using this stamp! I was tempted to add a pair of glasses to make it really look like Joe...but I didn't want to ruin the card with my doodles!

I've opted for a very bright colour scheme as you may have noticed. Not only does this make it a very lively, fun card...but it also fits in with this week's challenge over at Allsorts! Their theme this week is primary colours....and they asked that we used a minimum of two...so I went the whole hog and used all three! If you want to see other cards using the primary colours, take a peek at the gorgeous DT cards over at Allsorts.

I'm pleased to tell you all that I am loving my new laptop, I'm amazed at how quickly it zooms about the web! So no more moaning from me about slow computers...my friend Sheree will be pleased if she reads this!

I'm also very excited because this Friday I am off to Germany for a long weekend with my lovely sister Lorna...we're off to see the Rhine in Flames, an event that I love. The Rhine in Flames is a summer long celebration that takes place in the towns and villages on the banks of the Rhine. There are amazing fire work displays and of course gorgeous german wine. I'm a huge fan of German wine (very unfashionable I know) - I'm sorry that its not well represented in the shops here...but at least that gives me an excuse to go on a trip! Hee, hee!

Right, I'm off...I woudl say I'm going to try and get an early night, but since I'm already sat at my craft desk we all know thats a fib!

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek at my cards.
