Birthday cards

I've been playing with the TH stamps and dies again.  The background paper is from the Laboratorie pad. As I live not far from GCHQ  and it's a huge employer in the area, I have quite a few male friends who work there. These stamps combined with the paper pad will make great cards for these guys.


This second card is a very clean style for me.  As you can see I've used the TH window die again and if you enlarge the pic, you can see a couple of Memory Box dies which I've used to fill the window box.  The background picture is from a small pad of paintings and matching coloured card that I have by Michael Powell

love the top card....admire those TH stamps but haven't been brave to get them as I don't think I could do them justice (which you have!)

These designs are unusual but very striking and, as you say, perfect for men. Tim's products are excellent aren't they?

Oh, brilliant, Carol! I love peeking through windows, so both these cards delight me. That window-box is a wonderful touch!

Had a crazy work week on the back of the house move, so now looking forward to some catching up (crafting and sleeping) over the next few days.

These are both fab cards and I can see how the guys are going to really appreciate them. I'm like Paula and want to buy them but not sure I'd have the inspiration to use them, certainly not as well as you have.

Love the peek through the window. Now that is definitely a very useful die which I think needs to go on the list, ;D!

Same die, two looks! Fabulous stuff!! I like them both because they are totally different in style.
