Two masculine cards made with Pollyanna Pickering images

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? We really made the most of our extra day at the weekend. We popped out in the morning. First to the garden centre for a coffee and a piece of cake to share. The real reason for going there was to buy another plant for our garden. Then we went to Halfords and my husband bought new windscreen wipers that he fitted when we got home. The new plants for the garden were planted. The potted Christmas tree was repotted. I sorted out the weeds on our drive. My husband also did some filing. It was a good day of catching up on jobs.

I really do like images by Pollyanna Pickering. I think the ones I have chosen this time make fantastic masculine cards.

I decided to make a Father's Day card for my dad. Since the summer when he was very ill his short term memory has been affected. The strange thing is he is very happy now much happier than he has ever been and he says nice things now which he never used to do. I think he will like this image of a tiger. 

The card is on the side and when I walk past it I always think how much I like this tiger. 

This is a Signature die. I have had it for a long time and I use it for just about every Father's Day card I have made. 

Someone from our church was rather ill. It was suggested that I make him a Get Well card. If you notice I used the same backing paper and ribbon for both cards. 

This owl is adorable. 

Here are the two card together. I really do like those images a lot. 

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

If the acre is a red one it will look lovely with the lilac . I only have a small lilac and it is planted in a large pot to keep it contained. It is a dark lilac and has just about finished flowering. It looked lovely this year. Hugs Mrs A.
