If it's not broke, don't fix it....!


This is a scheduled post (fingers crossed it's worked!) as I'm currently sunning myself or getting drenched by rain in Abersoch this week :)

I'm zooming by to share a card with you for our new challenge on A Passion for Papertrey:

happy happy birthday angle

We wanna see masculine cards for this fortnight's challenge. Seeing as I have what seems a ton of them to make this month, I'm going what-works-for-one-card-works-for-another theory for my approach to 'em. See you probably recognise that whole square aperture idea from this card. Well it's not cheating to use it again and jiggle it around a bit, right?! As the saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" *wink*

happy happy birthday

We'd love to see you join us and share the inspiration for guy cards; let's face it, the more inspiration for these toughies the better! Your card only needs to use one Papertrey Ink product to qualify for entry so what are ya waiting for?!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Catch ya later!

Howdy holiday Aimes - hope Abersoch is looking after you :D You really are the best person I know that can totally rock that man thing. Stunning embossed effect and great choice of sentiment and simple single candle - very effective.

Take care and enjoy the rest of your hols :D
