Touch of blue

Just a couple of cards I made this weekend using blue...

This first one is for Friday MashUp's Challenge #60 to make a masculine card using the sketch and for Play Date Café's Challenge #133 to use these colours.


And here's my card. I really don't have a great deal of masculine stamps in general and my SU stamps for men are even more limited. I don't like making cards with dinosaurs or sailing boats on so don't have those stamp sets, so had to use my motorcycle stamp, which is one of the few masculine SU stamps I have.

My next card is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #119 for the sketch, Cupcake Crafts Challenge #193 Book Lover and ColourQ's Challenge #138 to use these colours. I so love my All Booked Up set and as a huge book lover myself I just love the gorgeous sentiments in it (although my Kindle has taken over from real paperbacks now and with almost 1000 books on it there's no way I could store that many paperbacks!)


And here's my card.

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
