Colour Create - Brown, Orange & Green & 365 Cards Day 58 Something Fishy


To have to add the fact that the card this week at Colour Create should hopefully be for a man adds an extra challenge. Why should making cards for chaps be so tricky? I think that lots of us think alike on this subject.
Anyway these stamps arrived today, so I thought I'd have a go at using them. They were very cheap at ArtyMiss and I can't resist a bargain. I thought that I would start on a few Father's Day cards as it is approaching next month.
The background paper is from Clare Curd's Signature range.
365 Cards today needs at least one fish. There's one very prominent one and there are probably more lurking in the shadows somewhere!

  20. Hi Chrissie, hope you're having a good weekend so far. Your card is fantastic, I love the stamps you used, perfect for a male card and I love how you used the colours for this week's CC too. It's good to get ahead with the Father's day cards especially as they're tricky to make LOL. Hugs, Chris xxx
