A male card

Good morning.....well only just morning lol. I made a card last night cus I had to wait for bits of my PFP creation to dry & yes you have read the heading right 'a male card'. I know I dont like doing them I've hardy made any & I really do struggle with them but I saw this stamp & had to buy it straight away, its just brill I love it lol!!
Here is my card....

Doesn't he look fab he is the typical dad every morning would take the newspaper to the loo with him & do the crossword lol. It helped him concentrate I think lol.....maybe men really do have poops for brains lol, only kidding, my hubby will kill me lol. The stamp is from La Pashe & it comes with the sentiments.

I dont know any1 who takes a pint in the loo with them tho.....YUK

This is the inside of the card, I think this is what made me like this stamp to be honest was the fact to saw the back of him as well lol. The inside papers are from K&Co & I have distressed the edges with vintage photo & the middles were cut using 1 of my nestabilities thru my Cuttlebug.

The toilet roll also came with the stamp which I stamped with Stazon & distressed it with vintage photo. The main images were stamped with Memento onto Premier quality smooth card & coloured with Promarkers. The card you can get from here its good card especially for Promarkers, no bleeding which is brill & it even goes thru my Epom printer for when I want do Digi Images.....what more could I ask for!!!

This is the front & back of the card, the papers have been distressed with my distressing tool from Mr Tim Holtz, the paper is from the Paper Cellar. I have put ribbon under the image, I dont normally use ribbon on mens cards but this could actually be used for both sexes I think, The buttons are from my stash, I always struggle with bellies on Mens cards, its the decorating I find the hardest!! The sentiments came with the stamp of course & I again distressed them with vinatge photo.

This card was made for a few challenges including I love Promarkers whose theme is buttons. Well thats it folks will be back later with another post......I know I've never done so much crafting in so little time, but I'm not gonna knock it cus 'I'm lovin' it'(she says singing out loud & getting weird looks from her son's friend he he he,good job he knows she is loopy lol)

Take care every1 & thankyou for looking at my creations, please leave a comment if you have time I have just realised that I had comment verification on so I've turned it off now......DOH!!! how thick am I lol. Anyway byed-d-bye peeps take care hugs to all that visit,

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx - Buttons - Men - Recipe (hope its ok, I've got 2 papers inside & out, 3 bellies & my image is sort of 1.....its just the front & the back of him....hope it counts,sorry if it doesn't) - Anything Goes (my 1st time here) - Anything goes (this is their 1st challenge)
