More for the boys

Well the rain certainly has fallen over the past 24 hours - sunbathing weather one day the next downpour.... It's just weird weather here at the moment..... perfect days for crafting though!
Here are the cards that I wanted to share with you today...

The first one is using the capsule collection from Do Crafts - spots and stripes, brights.
I have used some of the papers, ribbons and large buttons.
I put some coffee packets in the pocket as I was staying in a hotel and thought they worked quite well. But you could use the pocket for a girft card, voucher or cheque if you want to.

The second card uses some of the Do Crafts 'Home to nest' range.
I love the colour palate of this range - soft colours that are perfect for the male cards we can all struggle with but also great for the very popular vintage style.

As you can see here it goes really well with kraft card too.

Today is the WAY picnic (Widowed and Young) and the weather has not been kind, so we are moving it indoors - never let it be said that a bit of rain keeps our spirit down!
Have a great day, whatever you are doing.

Happy crafting
