For Him

It seems like ages since I posted a card of my own! Things have been more hectic than usual with a family wedding,work,back to school for my sons etc. so I haven't even had time to make a card until now.
This one is for Sketch Saturday and also for Allsorts where this week's card is "something for the boys".
Well this time I've used the top half of my "Jonny" stamp from my Passion for Stamps range which you can find in the side bar.
The papers are Papermania/Jesse Edwards and I've used a Woodware leaf punch.

I thought the stamp was versatile enough to use either whole or just the top half...what do you think?


  1. Hi ruth!just saw this on DO crafts and commented.
    Love your take on the sketch and the way you've only used part of the stamp

  6. Hi Ruth. Thank you for popping by my blog and leaving me your lovely message. Your card is great, I always find male cards tricky but you've really captured this one so well. I love the papers you've chosen and the little details with the leaves and corners. Great stamp, he looks really contemporary. Your frame looks fab too. I wouldn't mind one of those myself :o)

  7. A great man card. I love the partial use of the stamp and the lovely colours and papers you used. Elaine
