Simple Boys Cards!

blogpics12 002Aren’t boys tough? in so very many ways!! Tough little cookies, tough to figure out and supremely tough to make for. How many times have you scratched your head trying to make something remotely boy-suitable that looks good too. This was a very quick card for a birthday boy who is a friend of Jamies’. Having two sons means I will make a fair few greetings over the years.

This one though, I like. Only because it was simple and very quick. Using a scrap of wallpaper border (already sticky- oh Joy!)  it was ready in super quick time. Scout around people; there is so much that is free- check out your local DIY store!

Completed with my trusty old Quickutz alphabet as you have to have their name on- it just won’t do otherwise!!

Feels good being simple!!Take that one however you like! I’m trying to drag simplicity into my ever complicated life and that is a mammoth challenge.

Well I need to crack on with preparing for my first Stampin’Up event. It is fun  preparing samples to show the girls and at least I’ll be able to re-use them. I just need to settle on what we’re actually going to make together.. some of them are not die-hard crafters so it needs to be simple but with the’ wow, did I really make that?’ effect! Think I might do some cheat watercolouring! Need to get going though; should be about 15 of us so its going to have to be make and takes in rounds!! At least my dining table will seat 10 .

Take care xx
