For a change......


Hi Girls

Oooh out of my comfort zone or what???  But soooooo easy!!  I need to put some male cards into my stock for sending out (comes of having two brothers..)  and had bought this Memory Box Moustache die set a little while back.  Then, when I saw this Echo Park Times and Seasons digi paper this week and bought it from One Buck Wednesday... I knew the two had to go together!  It's so simple it barely needs describing...  but I did doodle to give it a frame...  then the manly sentiment was done on the PC using Adler Typewriter font... don't adjust your eyes, it's SUPPOSED to look like that!  And it really dates me... as I learned to type on an Adler!!  And that was before electric typewriters came out!  

Twas easy to photograph too because there's no colouring... apart from the camera picked up tiny hairs of black card that I couldn't see.... but ah well...  a card in 10 mins... how good is that? LOL!

Have a good weekend y'all......  my OH is working all weekend, so it's going to be a quiet one here... think I may just be busy in a certain little room!  But I'll be talking to myself before he finishes..   His comment about this card was 'hmmmm not sure I'd want to receive a card like that....'  Ouch!!

Big hugs

It's a fab card Christine - love the 'tashes!! I've seen that die around and thought about getting it, but didn't. Wish I had now!

And ignore the hubby - I get that sort of comment from mine all the time. I'm learning to ignore it!!!

Hope you have a lovely crafty weekend,

Sarah

Well I love this one and yes its completely different from you!
I have a mustache die set but I think its called 'the cats pyjama's' and I have a paper pad that has something like this paper in it and I certainly wish I'd thought of making this card!!
Have a lovely weekend

Great minds Christine. I saw that paper too and bought the digi kit. :) It went perfectly with my new Sizzix embossing folder and Hunkydory moustache stamps! Great backing paper when you don't have any other moustachy ones! Love the card. x Edna x

Don't listen to him hun, my hubster is exactly the same. They're so unappreciative of crafting! LOL
I think it's fab. Great idea with the dies too, and I love the doodling.

I get comments like that all the time from my Hubby, don't show him cards anymore.
A great idea and couldn't get a better paper to go with the image, looks great.
