Sketch n Stash 75

My goodness me, it's AGES since I played along with Sketch n Stash, but I'm so glad I used this sketch!  It was a fab sketch and helped make a few more male cards for my stall at the brownie fundraiser last week.  I actually like making male cards, but maybe it helps that I like simple layouts / embellishments anyway.

So, I have used some papers, including scraps, from my Basic Grey Oliver pad.  Will need to find another boy pad as there's not much left of this one!  I've used my VERY neglected Sugar Nellie Rockstar image, coloured with promarkers and a white embossing pen for the button details.  I rather over-did it when I first bought him as he seemed to suit all the male birthdays I had that year, but he's not been out an awful lot since.  I've used some Buttermint Card Candi, twine and a brad I've had for ages - might be a Dovecfraft one. 

That day, I also made this card, using the Sketch Saturday sketch, but unfortunately I didn't have time to blog it before the challenge deadline:

I used some scraps from my First Edition Up, Up & Away pad - I ADORE this pad - the colours are gorgeous and the glitter looks brill!  A LOTV image and some more card candi to finish.


  1. Two gorgeous male cards! These are really lovely :-) Love 'n' hugs, Mel xx
