"Some Man Cards"

Hello Blog friends followers and "poppers by".  I love that you call in and leave me comments, thank you very much for that.
 I am always amazed when I read the Post Statistics, how many people leave a comment and how many have looked in!!!  Mind you I suppose I have done it myself.  Gone into a Blog I had not been into before, to see what was on offer.  If it was not for me just came out again. 
Anyway, it was a while ago I popped into a Blog and saw some wonderful cards made using Stampscape Stamps.  I really can`t remember the Blog but it stirred my imagination.  
I am not a stamper however I have had lots of fun using these stamps. I don`t use them often enough  but when I do dig them out I have fun using them.  Have to say they are brilliant for "Man Cards"
This is where I purchase my stamps, they have some wonderful Tutorials.
Here are a few cards I made the other day.  I really like playing with these stamps.  I make a lot of terrible messy cards that end up in the rubbish bin.  Hey! Ho! its only bits of card and some ink, one has to make mistakes in order to learn!!!  Well that`s what I keep telling myself!!!
Here are some of my latest efforts:-

We have a few male Birthdays coming up, these will be used for them.
I do not put Sentiments on them all till I see what they might be needed for.

I have used:-  Base cards, Black card, some smooth Stamping Card, various inks
Stampscape Stamps from the above site.
That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit, I really appreciate that you stop by.
Till next time

    Smashing cards. I'm not that great at stamping so tend to give it a wide bearth lol x

  27. Good morning my lovely friend,
    Oh Patricia i really like all of these cards that you have made for the men, they take me back to my childhood growing up when Mum and Dad would take us on a trip and the beautiful sites we seen. These cards do look like places that i have been to on my travels and are just perfect, i hope the recipients liked them as much.
