Rustic Birthday

I'm delighted to be able to tell you that I am back on the Bearly Mine Designs DT.

When my Father was ill and later had to go into a Nursing Home, I had to give up a lot of my DT positions. He sadly passed away in January and I found that I had lots more time to craft - fortunately most of my old Design Teams have welcomed me back and I have also been invited to join some fabulous new ones.

The new challenge at Bearly Mine Designs this month is One for the Boys and I have made a card using Donna's fabulous new Wooden Wonders Digi Set.


I have stamped directly onto one of the papers with a Tim Holtz Travel Blueprint stamp, I stamped it several times so that I could cut it out and layer it up.  I used the same stamp to do some second generation stamping on another of the fabulous papers from the pack and inked the edges of everything with Frayed Burlap distress ink.

The sentiment is computer generated, I tried to match the text on the stamp, I think I did quite well!  As this card is for a man the only embellishments are some string and brads from my stash.



We have two fabulous sponsors again this month:



and



Prize: £15 voucher to spend in the Bearly Mine Designs Shop

This is fabulous Pauline, so love these journey type cards for men, you know the sort I mean, with maps, ships, compasses I love them, just don't have any items to do them myself lol! Love the stamp you have used here though, brilliant.

So glad you have been accepted in so many Design Teams, your cards are amazing. So sorry to hear about your Dad though.

Wow, what a nice male card Pauline, beautiful papers and the way you've used the stamp is so nice. I find if very hard to make a card for a male so I don't make them very often. This is a good inspiration for me.. so perhaps...........;)

Congratulations on being a top 5 winner on Eureka's challenge Masculine and Grungy! I picked you as a winner, too! I am #51 and also won the top 5, which is really what I was aiming for. It's my first time entering any challenges and also my first time blogging. I have no idea what this 'grab a badge" means or how to do it. I am a newby to all this! Would love some advice, as your blog seems well decorated:)! Love, love that compass card!
