Male Birthdays

Well, March seems to be getting away from us and it is going all too fast. I haven't managed to blog as I hoped I would, My aim was to get on everyday but that hasn't happened. Although I haven't been able to blog much, I have been craftily busy(not sure that is a word, but it is now).  As you know, the end of January saw me become a Stampin' Up demonstrator and I have now done 3 classes.  I have another 1 lined up for April and hopefully one towards the end of April as well.  They all went really well and I had 10 come to each class and they all made fantastic cards to take away.

Anyway enough rambling and down to business. March seems to be a busy month for guy birthdays and so here are a few that I have done. They are for my cousins husband but as always, the family also need them and so I have to come up with a few ideas for the same person fortunately, he likes various sports. It certainly keeps me on my toes but I love it.  Here they are.

This is the little cricket fella from Lili Of The Valley.  I have coloured him in using Promarkers, the backing paper is all from My Mind's Eye complete boy collection.  The little paper buttons are from the Creative Memories cheerful collection. I went for the red round one because of the cricket theme.

This uses for the backing paper My Mind's Eye complete boy paper. The image is from papermania and is called Nostalgic Pastimes.  I have coloured in using Promarkers and mounted onto basic black cardstock from Stampin' Up.

This card was made using the Goal set from Stampin' Up. It is the first time I have used masking to create a card but I am quite pleased with how it turned out.  I have used a strip of basic black cardstock along the top, and then I have stamped the GOAL and the black footballs in basic black ink and the red were in Real Red ink. Quite a simple card really but I hope it looks effective.

I hope you like them,

Love Bex xxx
