One for the men

Welcome back,

Well today has been one in which i will have to enjoy for some time.
 As early tomorrow my son is leaving to go to Cairns, he will be gone for at least a month, we don't know when he will be back that depends on how things go in Aussie.
I will miss him big time,  he is my best mate and a great critic for the items i create.

Most mums experience a child leaving the nest when they are older, not at 15 (well almost 16), but tell me is it  easier if they are older.
 He has been offered a great work experience, so who am i to stand in his way.

While enjoying his company and talking i managed to make this card for the new challenge over at Techno stamper

With father's Day and a couple of male birthday's coming up i thought i would tackle that ever so hard to make - male card. 

Card/Paper:  Soft Suede, Whisper White, Windsor knot DSP, Sage Shadow.
Stamps: Happy moments, Short & sweet
Ink: Basic Black, Soft Suede, So Saffron
Other: SU punches, Black Ribbon, Dimensionals, Aqua painter, 


  1. Totally know what you mean by difficult male cards...its hard enough when you buy them in the shop and having to match one to them...let alone making them like u do!!

  2. love the double stack - does pay to wish BIG

  3. Love it. What a perfect idea for this layout. Thanks so much for playing along. Hope you son has a great trip!

  4. Love that colour scheme, Sharna - gorgeous. I hope your son has a great experience in Oz.

  5. hi, Bron, thanks for that,im trying to come away from my usual colors and give others a try.
    well i can relax a bit as i talked to my son tonight.
