Ahoy There Matey!!!

Sorry,this photo is rubbish but I hope that you can see the essential elements in it! We all struggle with mens cards but they really aren't that hard to make and men are interested in other stuff besides footy and beer!!
This trio have cricket,ties and jolly Jack Tars as their theme.
Recipes as follows:
Cricket- Paper by Dovecraft,embellishments by CraftyBitz from The Paper Mill and sentiment from George & Basic Shapes
Ties-Paper and rub-on by Papermania,
hand knotted ties made from ribbon scraps and jewelled brads,'DAD' cut from Beyond Birthdays
Ahoy- Paper by K & Co, embellishment by CraftyBitz , 'ahoy' cut with shadow from Opposites Attract (Opposite enabled) brads from my stash & rub-on from Papermania
These cards practically made themselves!!

Love Birds

I really love these concertina fold cards as they give you a much bigger area to work on!
The Anniversary card was made with the Wedding Solutions cartridge and paper from DCWV Rock Star Stack,black velvet ribbon and black gemstones
Love Birds was again made with the Wedding Solutions cart. paper with little birdies on (sorry,can't remember who it's by) and black swirly voile ribbon. Although you can't see it very well the birds and heart have been glittered with black Stickles glitter. The white panel that the birds are on is embossed paper by Doodlebug
Hope you like them!

Oh,Pretty Baby!!!!

Everyone loves making baby cards,and I'm no exception! I have tons of baby cards to show you but I'll start with these two.
They are both tent-fold,the one on the left being a conventional tent-fold and the one on the right has a concertina panel added to it. The 'New Baby' card is very simple with just a panel of delightful 'Animal Crackers' paper by Making Memories,a piece if ribbon , a layered flower and a simple sentiment cut with the Stone Script Cricut cartridge. Three brads top and bottom and lots of glitter finish it off.
Although it's not very clear the second card says 'baby makes 3' This one was made with the Stretch your Imagination cartridge and paper from Nana's Nursery Boy Collection. Pola dot satin ribbon and green gems finish it off. Who says baby cards have to be pink or blue!!!
