Small is good

Hi there , welcome to my room .
 Hello to all followers , on  blog and those newbies to my craft circle.

Had a fabulous craft morning  with two of my dearest friends , Fran and Sandy , followed by  laughter packed lunch at the  Forest Avenue Deli .

Just between you and me I prefer to make cards for males . Papers are easier to choose ..sentiments are basic and embellishing is simpler.
That brings me to a card I would like to share here .
Last week was quite busy with ordinary mundane life stuff and I did not get 3 cards and kits made up for this morning . So the girls quickly made up the one I did make and the last two were made up on the spot .
Heehee that is after Sandy's little mishap with a cup of  her  magnificent cup of coffee that I had made . You know it is incredible just how far a cup of coffee can spread when it is not in the cup !

but back to the card .. about 11cm square.

Love the new papers from SU . This one is Sweater Weather. The sentiment and punched label is from SU .Label Love .
Ribbon , SU .Card candy from my stash .
Bike image , Motorcycle, SU . Card stock from my SU stash . Scallop square from SU..
Actually I enjoyed creating this with the girls as we each ended up with a slightly  different result .

Another fine Spring day  after a very cool start . Roll on Summer .

I do hope that you and yours are well and you are getting in some craft time . Thanks again for sharing some of that valuable time with me .

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne

Wow, Shirley, that was an honest confession about the fact that you like to make men's cards. And your cards are SUPER. Wish I could be any where close to that. I have to do a card making session for the five year olds in Aleeza's class and I am struggling with ideas for boy's cards.
I like the papers and the card edges and the paper on your card.
Nice quote - makes me want to smile.

excellent card, you do them so well, and you are an expert at the male-theme for sure! Love the plaid and shape!

Love this masculine card Shirley Anne, so macho.

I'm like you, have no problem making men's cards, not as nice as this though :)

As for the quote - well I wish it was true LOL.

This is a great male card, Shirley-Anne! The DP adds to the masculine feel of this card, and I think you picked the perfect spots for the sentiment and image.
