The papers are Serif 'Spring in Your Step' - and they were freebie in Scrapbook magazine. They were a very nice set of papers and they were perfect for male cards!! The border, corners and mount edgings were done with scissors. Buttons, ric rac and gems are from stash. Gorgeous green card is from Papermania Capsule 'Fresh Verde' pack. I have just bought some more Papermania Card as I love it! The sentiment is again one from the gorgeous 'Dreamy Sentiments' set from Lili of the Valley and mounted on Nestablities. The DAD letters I printed from computer. Then coloured them Cornflower Blue to match and added Glossy Accents to make them look funky!

Tip (Top Tip Tuesday)
I used to get my Promarker Blender Pen mixed up with my Cool Greys as it looks very similar. So I put a red elastic band on my Blender Pen! Now it is easy to find quickly and just the feel of the rubber band as you pick it up let's it know it's your Blender!
I have done quite a few 'male cards' of late and they are really growing on me! There are so many wonderful images that are suitable for men at the moment! It's great! I hope we still get some male challenges every once in a while after Father's Day!!!
Hope you are all keeping well
Thanks for visiting and for your lovely comments!
