Men! Why are they so difficult? lol

If anyone has any fab tips or suggestions on how to make male cards then send your answers on a postcard to....

Just kidding! I can't say I find it easy though! lol. Here is my attempt at making Adam's birthday card for later this month. It's pretty plain and simple but he tends to like the minimalist look on cards.

I used one of my new personal impressions stamps from the set I bought over the weekend and coloured it with my polychromos (the colours look a lot paler when photographed for some reason). I cut and embossed the circles with my nesties hen shaded with polychromos and stuck on the nail embellishments which I found buried in amongst my craft stash.

Has anyone seen the new Penny Black clear stamp ranges yet? There are several new sets which I found over at and I just love them! Can't justify anymore craft purchases this month though :o( Already spent out my polychromo pencil set last week at £30 (ouchy ouch!)

Anyways, if I have enough time I'll enter the Paper Take Challenge this week as I think the sketch is nice and simple yet effective:

Ta ta for now.
