Male Birthday Cards

Had the OH and sons birthday the other week and was totally stymied what to do, so did the best I could with some images offline for my son, even managed not to notice son come into room and look at what I was doing before leaving rapidly, he realised it was his card (I blame it on the medication, LOL), and a bit of stamp painting for hubby, not convinced I havent used that stamp on him before though, oops. Managed to include his age on it using the cuttlebug numbers folder, which I thought was very clever. He looks good for 87, haha.

So I hope you like, as is normal saw some brilliant male cards in a mag the other day, (note to self - must remember to look through mags for some ideas next time).

The week before his birthday I was clippering my hubs hair for him, he has a no 1 all over and doesnt trust me to set it up so does it for me, grrr, so anyway picked clippers up without really thinking and removed black cover and started clipping, two seconds later,OMG, i had taken the number thingy off and shaved his hair off completely, typing this now am trying hard not to cry with laughter, at the time was so shocked and could just say sorry repeatedly as I shaved off the rest of his hair, luckily I thought he looked fine and he didnt lose his rag with me, phew. Of course I will never be trusted to touch the clippers again. LOL

Two other cards for you to look at one was a wedding card for a friend, I thought it was really sweet, I was practising making flowers as you can see, had made so many even added one to my dads fathers day card, he is nearly blind so he'll never know, LOL.

Warning have lots more flowers left, expect to see some flowery atc's in the future.

Oh and must admit that OCD for crafty things has overtaken me and I have ordered more promarkers, honestly they were a bargain. LOL

Hope your week has started off well for you all, speak soon Siobhan

Love your cards!!
To respond to your question about the flower pounding with the Wizard...Any die cut machine should work because there's so much pressure applied to the flowers when going through the machine. Thanks for hopping over to my blog, I appreciate it :)
