motorcycle birthday card

I have actually made a few cards using this stamp set as I will be needing them for a few male birthdays coming up .I consulted the Colour Coach ( available in the catalogue page 81 ) as I find it difficult to come up with nice colour schemes for men . This colour combination is Cherry cobbler , Basic Black , Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla . Now I would never have thought of putting these colours together but I love it ! I used a little of the DSP in Cherry Cobbler to give it a wee lift . I have used the Modern label punch for the sentiment which is out of the Level 3 hostess set Occassional Quotes . I hope you like the simplicity as much as I do !

I'm Back !!

I am so sorry to have neglected my blog for so long but my poor dad died at the end of february and it has been hard as we had to sort out his house and everything that goes with that . It is not a case that I have not been making cards as a few of us Northern Irish demonstrators took a stand at the Kings Hall in Belfast at the Creative Stitch and craft show and we had samples to make for that . I have been merely coping with the necessary ! Now we are preparing for another Experience event on the 11th June so again the samples are being made . This photo shows the congratulations cards that I made for the winners of the prize draw on the stand . I hope the 3 ladies were pleased to have each won the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set !
