Here is my interpretation of those ideas

lots of bling

Gold card, black feather boa

dies are MarianneDesign, handmade White Vellum flowers on the box and the card.

"Men Cards"


Thought I would share 3 cards I made for Fathers Day last weekend, here in Australia.

As Men cards are always difficult or they are for me I thought why not make use of the internet and search for hubby's and sons in laws favourite cars, bike images!

Hubby's always wanted a new Jaguar, printing out the images on photo paper gave them an almost velvet look which I rather love,

Dale has a Harley Davidson, its red (not sure if this is the right bike, but its red) I really loved the harley badge I found for his card

Richard would one day love a Red Porsche - apparently red cars go faster hehe!

all papers are Maja,
 Stampendous Frontage in Aged Silver, Aged Gold,
 Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die, 
Crafts-too embossing folder Geared 
Darice Brick Pattern.

I hope you like my take on cards for Men!

until next time, take care

Push, Pull, Flip Card in Motion

Hi there,
Yay, I am soooo pleased that I was in the Top 3 at Midweek Magnolias! 

Here is my first Push, Pull card!
 I'm really pleased with how my Guard of the Castle has turned out, this Edwin is new (I've wanted him for a while & as a Pom I had to have him lol) I went to the Paperific Expo in Melbourne last weekend, I found him and lots of Tilda's there - yippee, I haven't treated myself to new Magnolia stamps in ages! 

I did think that push, pull cards were very tricky to make but after doing a little research I realised they are quite simple.

I wanted to have the guardsman standing outside the palace walls with the turrets behind him, 

 there had to be a red Telephone box as well (love this) 

here is the card open

side view, I used some organza ribbon on the slide to pull it out.

Magnolia Guard of the Castle, Phone Booth, Edwin's Knight Castle
Magnolia Doohickeys Paris Night dies
DP's Maja Design Summer Crush 'Off to meet him' & 'Dancing the Bop'
Copic Markers, Glossy Accents, Ruby Rock-it Droplets 'Country Cookin'

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
