One For the Boys...

Or rather two for the men but that didn't sound quite as good.

I made this card with Peej's brother Tim in mind. However I needed to make another card for a blogging friend's husband (will explain more about that in a minute) and when I'd finished both I gave Peej the option of which one he'd like for Tim. Peej couldn't decide and asked Josh what he thought. Josh being Josh, and a typical boy, loves anything with an engine and so he chose the plane card for Tim. So this first card has gone to Dean (a.k.a. blogging friend's husband).Now to explain... I was doing some blog hopping the other day when I came across this post here. Clare's husband is feeling quite down at the moment and Clare was asking for crafty blogging buddies to make cards for Dean for his birthday on Saturday to help cheer him up. Well how could I say no?!

This is the inside of Dean's card.

This one is now Tim's card as chosen by JJ. I made this for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which is stripes but I've just realised that both cards have stripes and qualify for the challenge. I can't take total credit for the design of the card below. I saw a card with the small triangles arranged like this on it and thought it looked really effective, so I pinched the idea. However I can't remember where I saw it so I can't give a link to the original card. If I find it again I will add it. This is the inside. The plane stamp and the "Happy Birthday" stamp inside both cards are both new ones that I've bought to boost my lack of male orientated stamps. I think they look OK. Hopefully they get the Peej stamp of approval!
