male birthday!!

well another day another challenge, today i am showing my cards for "papertake weekly", the theme this week is "one for the fellas". it is my father-in-laws birthday this week, so made him these cards , from us and one from the boys!!!
used a great image , by pennyblack, stamped by jo for me, (thanks jo) also the saying. used "papers for men" and dovecraft paper, and ribbon from my stash, finished with glitter on the bottle!!
for the boys card used another pennyblack image, dovecraft papers and letters from my brenda pinnick set .


well wasn`t around yesterday as decided to have a clear/sort out of my wooden stamps!!! ~not a good idea , as it took me from friday evening to saturday evening to do that , with visits to B&Q and various shops like staples etc!! ever started a job and thought straight away ,"not one of my better ideas??" well i am sorted but our lounge now looks like a craft room (what an understanding husband i have!!) so one end a craft room and the other like toysRus!!!! ~well i can dream , of the time there is no more toys downstairs and i can replace with my crafting bits ,then we can have our lounge back!!!
we are out to a birthday meal today ,with pauls family, then back to ours for bithday cake!! yum yum!!
hope your day is exciting , but please think twice before a "craft" clear up!!!! :~) (have a piece of cake and a cuppa instead!!) byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

Great cards yet again Vanessa. Love that sentiment - who's it by - looks like Penny Black.
Yes I think I might be hooked on ATC's, made another last night when I got in from work.
You were brave sorting out your stamps, need to do that as well but keep putting it off. Anita

Your FIL is going to love these! They've turned out so well. No need to thank me for them...you stamped them!! Hope you're beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel with your clear out and that you have an enjoyable day. Happy Birthday FIL!!!

You have done couple of fab male cards. They are allways so difficult to be done but you have managed very well!
