Here is the first of the male cards for my daughters teachers as a "Thank you" for helping her during her schooling life,I really like the flippin men decoupage but not sure about the plainess off the cards?Anyway just added some corner stickers,coloured brown and some side stickers just to take away the plainess of the card.

Made a card last night for my dad,its his birthday next Friday and he loves his gardening...funny really cause when we were kids he hated doing the garden I remember as I got around15-16 years old I used to mow the front lawn cause I hated it being overgrown!!!Yet now he is retired and they moved into a bungalow around 10 years back he has taken pride in his "new" garden and now grows his own veggies at the bottom of it and strawberries and tomatoes in his greenhouse(yummy).....I love their garden in the summer it looks so pretty :o) Anyway made the card from the QVC large cards pack and just added DAD in the Happy Birthday sign,there are some lovely cards in this pack.

Next job is to make my daughters teachers some "Thank you" cards,she leaves 6th Form on Friday and is off to Uni in September and there are some special teachers who she wants to thank for all their help and support during her high-school years,think it will be an emotional time for her because a couple of the teachers she is very close to,they have helped to develop her skills and contributed to the young woman she is baby is all grown up *sob*!!!!

Well thanks for looking and hope to be back tomorrow with another card! Hugs Andrea xxxx

Well as promised here is the card I made last night,it was for a fellow docrafter who I was sending some images too,I hope she likes them just something plain and simple.I coloured the gorjuss girl with crayola pencils and blended with baby oil(Thanks pops for the cheap alternative!!).I got the stampin up stamps as a gift for subscribing to a craft magazine,first time I have used them,thought the "just for you" saying was ideal?Anyway thank you for looking and hope to have another card made very soon!!!!Hugs Andrea xxx
