Down the local!!

Hello everyone, unusual for me to be here on a Sunday evening but have managed to grab a few minutes to myself for a bit of blogging and thought why not?!! Anyway, I know I am not alone in saying that the male species are often difficult to make cards for. However, I think this one fits the bill for almost any age.


 It's a digi from Buddly Crafts called " Down the local" that I coloured with Promarkers to compliment the digi papers, also from Buddly Crafts. The pint's "head" was glittered, the glass had a touch of glossy accents and I added the button and twine from my stash to finish off. 

Some challenges to play

A Gem Of A Challenge #155 - Spots and/or stripes
That's Crafty - Boys will be boys
Cardz 4 Guys # 91   - Button it

Enjoy the rest of the day xx

Super masculine card Sarah and perfect for this week's challenge over at Cardz4Guyz. Thanks for linking up.
The weather is a tad autumnal this afternoon and Al lit the log burner last night as sure sign that autumn is well on it's way. :)

Was thinking about you earlier Sarah and wondered if your grass is having a late flush like ours, was quite surprise when I walked the paddocks earlier how it's perked up the last week. Mind you the boys still look for their buckets so probably not a lot of nutrient in it.

A super masculine card.

It's hard enough to make male cards without also accounting for the age of the recipient but I agree, this is suitable for any age...over 18 of course!
A brilliant design and the twine/button detailing looks great :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

I agree wholeheartedly Sarah - blokes cards are sticky!! - and being in house of men I feel well qualified to make that observation! This card is fab though and one I may well take inspiration from - the image is fun and you have put it together perfectly with the colours you have chosen and the papers you have used.

Asha said...

So true, Sarah. NOT easy making cards for men...and they call us difficult to please! Hah! This card is perfect for a guy... in fact, stick a pint in anything and that'll please him!
hugs, Asha
