Hope everyone is well. Thank goodness it is Friday tomorrow. Been a busy week at work with some long days involved so need the weekend.
Had a fab surprise today though. I had resigned myself to the fact that we would probably not get a holiday this year due to our youngest daughter being at university. But got home from work today and hubby has booked us a holiday. We are going on a Baltic cruise on June 20th for 2 weeks. How fab is that? We will be going to Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Russia, Norway and some others that I can't remember. Never been to any of the countries we will be stopping off at so it will be a real adventure. And the best part is I only have to wait 33 days before we go.
Of course, it will mean a lot of crafting to be fitted in before I go. Have several birthdays in June and my DT work to plan for. But hey, any excuse to get some extra crafting done.
Anyhow, enough about my holiday as I don't want to make you all jealous lol.
I have another male card to show you tonight. You will be seeing several male cards from me over the next few weeks as lots of male birthdays in June and July.
This card is for my eldest daughter's fiance. Decided to try and keep it quite simple focusing on the image and using minimal embellishments. The image is a Kanban stamp from one of their nostalgia sets. It has lots of lovely male images. I simply inked the image using distress ink and left it at that. No colouring in or extra shading as I didn't think it needed it. This was then cut out using a die and matted onto brown coredinations. The only other colour I used was blue coredinations cardstock. The white panel was embossed to add some texture. I added some pieces of ribbon to each of the corners, a sentiment and some card candy.
I quite like the way it turned out but would love to hear what you think.
