One For The Boys


I made this card for one of the adult Grandson's birthday. All the stamps and papers are from a Creative Stamping magazine , I am always happy to find new stamps for masculine makes and I particularly like the sign post stamp that can have different words added. Just had a lovely afternoon walking round the water gardens at Fountains Abbey, it is one on my very favourite places, it wasn't too busy this afternoon but it always has the most peaceful atmosphere of any place I know, good for the soul. We didn't actually get as far as the Abbey this time, next time we will start from the Abbey end. We did manage a visit to the tea rooms though for coffee and scones!

  3. Great design for a transport themed card. Me and a friend often visit museums/ galleries and by the time we've visited the gift shop and cafe, find that they're closing!

  14. This is a great card for a man, lots of interesting details. I agree, the signpost stamp is terrific as you could add your own words appropriate to the recipient.
    Glad you managed to get coffee and scones, always a treat.
