I've had a busy day, but don't have much to show for it!!!! Next week I am selling off a lot of my retired Stampin' Up!® stamp sets, inks etc. and it takes so long to photograph and list them, it seems to have taken most of the day.
BUT, I have also whipped up another birthday card, this time for No. 4 son, whose birthday is 10 days away. No. 2 son is this Sunday, and I have shared his card previously, here. It turns out Jake's is really appropriate, as he has asked for an apricot tree, so that his children can experience the joy of picking fruit from the tree to eat.
For William's card I've played about with Boutique Borders, Big News and What's Up?
I was aiming for clean and simple masculine, as requested by Jaydee at The Paper Players. With five sons and the same number of grandsons, I do seem to always be needing masculine cards, but I'm still no expert! I had intended to show the inside of the card when I first posted this, but my computer is being very temperamental about loading photos, and there was a few days delay before it would let me load more than the first pic.
I am loving these stamp sets and the snazzy, sketchy shapes that seem to go so snuggly together. The colours at ColourQ are quite masculine too, so that was a great solution to my quick card. Sometimes it pays not to over-think things.....
