It's a male thing!

Morning! Hope you're well today.

I'm very glad its Saturday at last....I had a mini lie-in this morning which is always great! Plus I've got two whole days with not much planned...therefore I see loads of crafting and baking ahead of me! Woo hoo!

I have a little card for you this morning perfect for the man in your life...

I usually really struggle with male Birthday cards....I'm much happier with girlie colours and sparkles! However, I got some fab stencils free with a craft magazine this week and one of them was a shirt and tie stencil. I'm pleased with this card, and when mum saw it she said I could easily turn this into a Father's Day card too!

I wanted to keep the card quite bright and fresh, so I decided to use a zesty green paper along with the bale brown, instead of the usual blues that I'd probably use for a male card. I used 3D sticky pads under the collar of the shirt  to make it stand out. There is still a bit of a girlie touch on the I couldn't resist using flowery paper for the tie!

I'm going to enter this in two challenges - Allsorts has a male/boy theme this week and Paper Cutz has a your choice theme (so I've gone with male birthday card!). Pop over to both of these blogs if you get the chance as they feature some really gorgeous DT cards.

Thanks for popping by my blog today. Watch this space, I'll be back with more cards over the weekend and maybe some tasty cakes or biscuits too!
