For the guys (and the gals!)

Thinking of You

So I'm busy this week studying. I love to learn so I'm not complaining, and I'm especially not complaining when it's a card class! :)

Yup, the His & Hers online card class started on Monday and boy, am I  glad I signed up after only Day 1! I'm a girl with a lot of guys in my family, so I'm hoping to build up a stash of guy cards and maybe - just maybe - conquer that little bit of fear I experience when I have to create for a guy!

Day 1 was all about the simple 'Thinking of You' card. The idea is to use a technique, product, sketch etc and make it cater for both the guys and the gals.

Kristina Werner featured a great sketch that I couldn't resist and both Jennifer McGuire and guest designer, Lisa Spangler featured the same products for their cards. Jennifer also featured an awesome technique that I hope to use later on...*wink*

So armed with a sketch and a stamp that I wanted to use on both cards, I got busy.

The card at the top is my guy card (I hope you can tell it's a guy card) and this card below is my gal card:

Thinking of You

Now I thought I'd be struggling with the guy card, but it was actually the gal card that had me scratching my head and walking away for cups of tea! What can I say? The course must be conquering that fear of mine already - ha!

As always, thank you so much for stopping by this little corner of Blogland. Hoping to be back soon with some more guy cards (and gal cards of course!)

oh, I was thinking of taking this course, Duchess...but May's busy! I just adore this sketch and how you traded out the elements for the gals and guys :) Although, don't the guys just have to put up with a pink heart now and then? ;) ox

I can't imagine you struggling with any card theme. Your guy card turned out particularly fabulous, but I love the gal version, too!
