A few for the boys

A busy day at work so my crafting time tonight felt well deserved.  So I decided to challenge myself to make some cards for men as they are definitely on my "I find it difficult" list.  I mean what do you put on when you have a space that needs filling - with a female card my fall backs are flowers or gems, for a make card, who knows!
This card was inspired by challenges at:
Cupcake Craft Challenge - one for the boys
CPS - card sketch
CRAFT challenge - Father's Day/Men's Cards
Magical Crafts Challenge - something for a male/Father's Day
Everything on the card is Papertrey Ink - I love the way all the supplies work so easily together

Another Papertrey Ink card.  This time the inspiration came from challenges at:
Daring Cardmakers - The World is you Oyster - for me the colours in this card scream American
One Stop Craft Challenge - sketch challenge
Incy Wincy Designs - One for the guys

This last card was inspired by challenges at:
Charisma Cards - spots and stripes
2 sketches 4 You - sketch challenge (I turned the sketch 90 degrees)
These papers arrived today in my Scrap-a-gogo Greeting kit.  I'm quite proud of myself for using them straight away.

I hope Monday has been a good day for you and that you found some time for yourself.
