More male birthdays!!

Made this card for my nephew  who turns 38!! next month.Find male cards hard to do (but think I sure get enough practice because we have lots  of males in my family!) but liked the colours on this one.(The pink is much paler IRL - though have seen him wear a pink tee shirt before...albeit a golfing one  hee he!)think the  lime green and brown are near enough the same as the one in the paper to be a good match so fairly happy with this one.x

Take 3 Challenges

 Hi there another week another challenge and how I loved this one!-what fun I had,new stuff from my stamper 6 and trying a new technique of rolling roses (although only one was usable!)

I choose to do wk24 - circles, wk15 - embossing, and wk16 - butterflies... again!, and the reason for the anniversary card is our next one will be our 25th, struggling once again getting a decent photo ,think it's time to invest in a new camera,because I have used lights, mirrors stood on chairs,lay on the floor - you name it I think I did it this morning all in the name of less is more! 
And forgive me if I didn't get round to posting as many comments as I would have liked last week, but being back to work after 6 weeks holiday takes a bit of getting used to again lol x

Happy Birthday Russell

My baby turns 15 on the 21st of this month and as he is motor bike and car crazy made him this card, have ordered through our stampin'up rep  the motor bike stamp but pretty sure it won't make it here in time so downloaded the picture but sure he will be happy with it! P.s just realised that it would fit into the less is more challenge as  something that moves!!

Hi everyone, just back from sunnier climes and feeling relaxed and ready to take part in this weeks challenge! Wanted to get it done as soon as possible because this is the last weekend of the Scottish school holidays so back to work on Monday groan- though looking forward to meeting the new children in our class. But back to the challenge -had multiple ideas and all ended in the bin as usual,eventually decided to use blending chalks - and ink of course.The 2nd one worked better( although the photo doesn't do it justice I feel ) and is my favourite, but forgot to spray it with hairspray before lifting it and the more eagle eye of you will see that a couple of  very faint smudgey marks were the result ( but think this shows that it is handmade hee he ) The first well I'll let you decide what you think of it ,both were made using the dry brushing method which I quite like instead of daubers.
P.s Is this better Chrissie think I've managed not to link it to my blog now!
