Time for a man's card

I haven't actually done any crafting today - the cards I'm blogging were made a couple of days ago when I was trying to do something to distract from the pain - so today I'm hoping that a bit of blogging might do that.

This is another card made with elements from the 'antique' section of the MCS everyday essentials kit, using my own navy blue card blank.


This is for:

Here come the boys 31: tag on a card
Always crafting creative Mondays 11: for men
Nutcrafters 22: one for the boys
Sisterhood of crafters: let's hear it for the boys
Card a day July: just for men
Paperminutes 225: shabby chic/vintage
Cupcake craft 200: number cruncher
Tammy scraping corner 18: anything goes
Creatalicious 35: anything goes
Crafty creations 178: free for all
Make it Monday 97
Inspire me Fridays 66
52 card pick up week 27

Cosy cats

These cats have found a nice cosy resting place. Another fancy fold card using MCS supplies from the everyday essentials 'pet' section.

I've just noticed that there were a few white bits where the die cut piece was taken out of the 'window' at the front - these have now been sanded to make them disappear.


This is for:

Gingerloft 44: fancy folds
Shopping our stash 59: extra fold or pleats
Alota: looking through a window
Ooh la la 109: whiskers
My time to craft 183: it's raining cats & dogs
LEJ 11: animals
Tammy scraping corner 18: anything goes

Flowery hearts

Another two cards made with the MCS everyday essentials, this time from the 'romance' set.

The first one is another fancy fold for:


Gingerloft 44: fancy folds
Shopping our stash 59: extra fold or pleats
Art impressions 71: easel or more than one fold



The above card and this one are both for Alota: looking through a window. The card below opens up to reveal the die cut image on the inside.


Both cards are for:

Phindy's Friday 113: initials - use something beginning with your initials - a hard one for me as my Christian name and surname both begin with H - so I've gone for hearts
Blog a doodle: monochrome

Fancy fold owls

This card is another for the July colour combo on Daring cardmakers:


It's another quick card made with part of the MCS everyday essentials nature set. I made quite a few the other day to try and take my mind off the pain.
