On The Move

Hi, I have got a lot of  milestone birthdays this year.  Two of them are female 40th  which are easy peasy! However, I also have two male 40th  and two male 70th birthdays which I will find far from easy.  This  one is not one  of the milestone ones, but one of my nephews celebrates his  birthday this week so this is a trial run, as it were! Oh I do prefer cards for ladies, there is so much choice! I guess there is choice for men too but I'm just not good at putting them together.

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

The stamps are all from Kaiser Kraft  "On The Move" which is ideal for men as it features tyre tracks, various wheels and an aeroplane too, as well as the car and banner. The backing paper is from K & Company "Life's Journey " pad.

Well that's  it from me today. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

love and hugs from Christine xx

  35. Lovely card for a male. I know exactly what you mean about the girl cards, but I think it is practice, you need a "run" so to speak at doing some male cards!
