back up and running......

Afternoon stampers.

Yay me.........
Thanks to my son i am now back up and running, he managed to re-install all of my hard drive so now im away again.

As i said in my last post i had to do a birthday card.
This card is for an uncle of mine who is turning 60, and as always i find male cards very hard to do, i have found less is best.
But i did have to laugh while making this, in the past i used to moan if i had to make a male themed card, as i didn't have any stamps for the purpose really, so i brought the stamp set " Lovely as a tree", as this is a great stamp set for male themed cards.
 But as you will see i didn't even use this set for this card. 

I am really pleased how this turned out, as out of all of the colour combos you can use i would have to say this combo is my favourite.

What the camera does not pick up is the fact that i used Crystal effects on this card,
 i used it in the centres of the round background stamps, on every other line of the DSP, and also on the 60 to highlight the number.
On the inside (opps forgot to take photo) i placed a piece of the matching DSP along the bottom to tie in the front of this card.

i almost forgot to post this today as i have been having fun over at the new exciting site of Andrea Walford
Click on the blinky on the side for Paper crafters Library, there is so much info on this site for beginners and for experienced crafters
