Something for the Boys

I always struggle when it comes to making cards for Males.  I found these lovely stamps from Papermania on my trip to the Home of Sugar Nellie Yesterday and I think they fit the bill perfectly.  I stamped the image onto Kraft Cardstock, a bit of faux stitching some distress ink and voila.  So simple why didn't I think of it before, I think I will make a batch of these up as there are 6 stamps in the set.  It is a dull and rather chilly day here in the North East of Scotland - a perfect crafting day.

A Gift For Teacher

First of all I would like to say sorry to my blogging buddies for not commenting on all your lovely creations but I am having problems like many of us with blogger.
My grandaughter leaves Primary School at the end of this term so I have made her a gift for her teacher, I hope she likes what I have come up with.  I stamped Winking Student from SUGAR NELLIE  on a canvas then coloured her with Promarkers.  The wooden frame I have decoupatched, the sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC  flowers are from my stash.  I must admit I felt a little sad making this as it doesn't seem very long since she had her first day at Primary School.
