Well, I’m grabbing a five minute breather before the mayhem starts again. I’m out on a leaving do tonight but I’ve just about had enough time to check out the Cas-ual Friday challenge (hope I get the right week this week!!). This week they are looking for something masculine with Kraft.
I’ve been crafting and eating and chatting about the school day with the kids and the number of famous people my husband has seen today (he’s working at some luxury apartments) all at the dining table so this is essentially a family effort and here it is:
I’ve made this using the Party This Way stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and my colours are Old Olive, Marina Mist and Real Red. Of course, my Kraft connection is the lovely Crumb Cake and I’ve used that as my card.
I’ve stamped the balloon and cut it out. After I attached it to the card I’ve used Crystal Effects (£5.75) to make it shine (and look more like a balloon). I’ve added a string to the balloon and a bow to the tag using some twine I found in my stash.
I asked Paul (hubby) if he thought it was manly enough. His suggestion? Maybe add a bit of ribbon to the tag to make it a present! WHAT?! Ribbon?? On a man’s card!!!? Is he mad!!!?
Hope you like it….right, I’m off out! See you tomorrow
