Sail Away Male Birthday Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your week been so far? We  have reached what some people refer to as Hump Day half way through the working week. When this post is published I will be on my way on a school trip heading towards Arlesford in Hampshire where the children will learn about the countryside. I hope we don't get any rain today.

When my husband asked for a birthday card for a male colleague earlier this week I realised just how few male cards I have in my stash. So I thought I'd better start making some.


I have been given a large collection of used cards on the off chance I might be able to make a card of my own from some of them. This card took two. The first card I cut down for the background. I used lots of layers to make the card more interesting. 


This is one of the wooden stamps from my collection. 


This boat came from another card. I have used this image before when my Father-in-law was 90 he got eight cards with this boat on them. Interestingly the pop-up box card I made for him is still on display. 


I made this card to go in my box of cards so next time my husband asks for a card there will be more for him to choose from. 

I would like to enter Challenge 121 at Cardz 4 Guyz


Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie
