One for the boys

This year really is flying in..... can't believe it's been 3 weeks since I blogged! Bad me..... Working in a school at this time of year means all hands on deck to get everything ready for the transition of classes, adults and children on to the next level..... busy busy..... Only 4 weeks of term left, after that I will have some breathing space to be able to get things sorted......

I have been creating lots of commission cards in the background though, here is one that I did for a gentleman..... male cards can be tricky at times but this one went down well.

The card was to have purple and golf in it......
I love these letters.... they are from Do Crafts..... fab for creating messages, names or sayings..... another addiction of mine....... I just keep buying them!

Another very busy weekend this weekend, it's my high school 30th celebration (also the school I work in now)...... so I'll be off to their event, should be a lot of fun - pray that the weather is kind to us!

Happy crafting, enjoy your weekend.

  2. Lovely card Nikki. I get a bit stuck with male cards so i keep them simple

  3. Just hopping by to say 'great card,''re right, male cards can sometimes be tricky, especially if you're given a long list of things that need to be incorporated (ie.....gun casings, wine corks on string, a particular kind of aircraft! etc.etc......) I've given up on trying to please everyone haha. Hope you have a good reunion weekend x

  4. Just hopping by t say hi!
