And Now For Something Totally Different

Inspired by Cards Only magazine, which always features some cards made without cute stamps, I made these two cards for my brother (30 today, yay!) and my stepdad (birthday last Thursday). Not totally happy with them yet, but then I didn't really have the supplies for these kinds of cards...well, that's what I tell myself, and any excuse to go shopping right? ;o) Anyway, these cards were very quick to make and easy "man" cards, always a difficult one I think!






Miss Anya's bag and hairband are absolutely covered with glitters, but you can't see it very well in the photo.

Made this for the Sugar Bowl challenge, which is a lovely sketch by Lia and the colour option blue/green. I think I've got that covered ;o)


Ingredients used:
Collage Press Jackson Lodge paper, Aud Design sentiment, brads

Kaisercraft paper, Daisy D's sentiment card, Pebbles Inc. Candy Dots, QuicKutz flower dies

The Greeting Farm stamp, PaperSalon sentiment, Collage Press Jackson Lodge paper, EK Success retro flower punches, spacers, brads, QuicKutz label die

Sugar Nellie stamp, Daisy Bucket Designs sentiment, My Mind's Eye paper, Papertrey Ink ribbon, Prima flowers, spacers, Pebbels Inc. Candy Dots, brads

That's all from me folks, enjoy your week and thank you for stopping by, your comments are much appreciated!

You have made some beautiful cards. Men's cards are so difficult to do but you have done a great job with them.

Such a pretty card Erica! I love the colors and the papers. I had fun playing the Sugar bowl as well.

I think you should definitely give it a try at Midnight Madness Sketch, you're cards have beautiful color, and not to mention up to $500 prize they are giving up, each week's entry is one more chance at the pot.
