My Time to Craft Challenge - Make it Manly

Haven't managed to do a challenge in ages, but when I saw this one I clapped my ickle hands together as I have had a few "Manly" cards to do this week so pop over to My Time to Craft and join in.
I have used milled lavendar DI and blended onto a piece of card and stamped with a crackle background in imperial purple versafine. Screwed up a piece of Co Ordinations card stock and sanded over the top so the lavender on the reverse of the black card showed through, used Inkadinkado stamps, added some ribbon and matted onto some purple mirri card, viola.

Here we go again peeps, oopps, must be rubbing off on me left my desk in a tip but have been on a card making frenzy, busy month for me March and of course was making my Hubby's BD card at the last minute for today, and one for my daughter to give too.
Thought I would show and tell, my ribbon drawer, who would like to volunteer for a tidy up! Do have a tidy box of ribbons all on spools, and the ones at the back of my desk below are from the box which was on my desk last week, bigish box, half was packaging. Take a look at Julia's blog and join in, if you dare.

Teenage Card

Have done my teenage card for my friend to give to her 14 yr old son, now just have to do one for me to send lol.

I am quite pleased with the card after all the anguish, I have used Inkadinkado stamps and some MM "Just Chillin" papers. I stamped the guitar onto the star background, inked some card with some DI's and stamped the guitar onto the card and cut out. It doesn't show up but I added glossy accents to the black inked areas of the guitar.

Oops, not posted anything since last Wednesday, come on get with the addiction and go over to Julia's blog and look at the neat and tidy and the downright disgraceful, think mine falls somewhere in between this week.
Couple of cards in the pipeline, a friend of mine has asked me to do her a card for her son who will be 14 next week, arrrhhhhhh, just don't have anything suitable and need to get it done and one for me to send too.
However, I do have my MIL's Mother's Day card to post, although it had to be altered as, can you see the glue mark at the top, well ended up with a scalloped boarder at the top as a cover up job, lol.
Well must dash have lots to do, will look at all your tidy and messy spaces later.

Here we are another Wednesday, where has the week gone and I know it's nearly over, but better late than never, and what's a working girl to do! Get over to Julia's blog and peruse the other addicts of WOYWW.

Thought I had better stick to what I know as have been trying to download a picci from OH's mobile of my dear Daddy's new ickle doggie but me been a whizz at all thing techy, rofl managed to start downloading song from my Ipod playlist, I swear I never touched a thing! Have managed to delete "Dreamboats and Petticoats", not sure he would appreciate the music but I did she some digi stamp images and papers, but can I find where they are on the phone. Will deny all knowledge.

Above is the card I have just finished, which is half assembled on my desk below, better put it to dry before the flowers all drop off. Blending's still not quite right, can't get it smoothly and evenly onto the card, but will keep trying

Looks a bit messy, that's cos I have been in the middle of making my first WendyV's styleee card, minus any of Wendy's stamps, but I am proud to say I have adapted an overcome this by utilising what I've already got.

See I do have stash gather all around me, only problem is I cannot leave my chair, as my room is only tiny and there's not a lot of floor space, and end up barricading myself in.

It's Wednesday again, am supposed to be up here crafting but have got sidetracked downloading some music to my Ipod so just thought I would load the pics of my desk which I took when I got home from work.

Am soooo excited too, got my Tim H's TSV on Friday, you will notice it's not on display as I still have not fessed up to OH that I bought it, the book he would notice but not the other bits and bobs. Also got Wendy Vicci's book too, which you can see on my desk. Best get a wiggle on if I want to make my desk a bit more messy LOL.

Have taken a couple of other pics, but have had a tidy and a bit of a clear out over the weekend as mojo had gone on holiday and I couldn't get motivated, but I desperately need it back as I have tons of cards I need to do, so please send me crafty thoughts as I'm told the power of the mind can work wonders, ummmmm, think my batteries must be running low!

Ooooh, look at that cupboard have made more room for more stash, SSSSSh need to keep it quiet.
Please take a look a lots of other crafty spaces by visiting Julia's blog.
Really must get on and do some crafting, will have to check out other WOYWW later.
Ta Ta for now x
