Max's Birthday Card

The current theme over at Cards for Men is 'G is for...' which is pretty open as theme goes.  I've gone for 'G is for GOOOAAAL' with this card for my son's friend Max when he had his birthday recently.  The image is from Kenny K and the soccer background was cut on my Cricut.

I've coloured the image using my promarkers which (for those who don't know) are made by Letraset who are the sponsors of the challenge over at Cards for Men.  Take a look over on the main post for the full details and to get a look at the rest of the Design Team ideas.

Clean & Simple at Cards for Men

Oh my gosh, I've been an absent blogger.  Please forgive me but you know how it is, life just gets in the way sometimes.

This time over on Cards for Men we're looking for Clean & Simple cards and as you can see from my card, I took this very literally, lol.  This stamp was a recent second-hand purchase so I don't know if it's still current.  It's by Anita's if that helps though.  The gold matting was from my stash andthen it's just a plain pre-scored card from Craftwork Cards.  Inside I've written Merry Christmas in gold but my handwriting is not good enough so I'll probably print something else to go inside.

The sponsor this time for Cards for Men is One Stop Card Crafts and we have a wonderful prize of £10 voucher to spend how you like.  If you haven't visited One Stop Card Crafts before, take the opportunity now, it's a real 'Aladdin's  Cave'.
