Man Card!

A week or so ago I attempted a guy card for my hubby with limited success. I decided stamps for men needed to be added to my collection immediately and was thrilled to find Wild Rose Studio Stamps for Men. There are some fabulous men stamps in the range, and I promptly bought two... and then a bunch of their girly ones too (I am able to always justify additional stamps because if you're paying for postage you should order all in one go - or so I tell myself).

It's my Dad's birthday on the 28th. My Dad loves his beer and the Wild Rose Studio Stamp "Time for a Pint" was perfect!

I bought new copics especially for the occasion - as I really wanted it to look like he was wearing jeans, and a red shirt goes perfect with denim. I was a little daunted by the dark colours, but I am very happy with how it turned out. Some denim and checked paper and bold red and blue card and ta-ta - Man card!
