Cards for Men challenge 17

Hi all

I know I haven't been to visit any of my favourite blogs for 2 weeks, I've been on Nanna duties, and with 5 boys coming and going I've had to put my stash away from sticky fingers, Ade who is only 3 likes nothing better than play with things he shouldn't. (lol)

Donna set a real challenge for me this time. cause I hate decoupage with a vengeance.

I don't have any decoupage in my stash, I have lots of cds, but guess what... the printer decided to run out of ink.. grrrrrrrr So Ive resulted to using a stamp.

I have this week to myself to play catch up. and hopefully get to play a little too................

Ive used a Peachy Keen stamp, isn't he cute, after looking at some stunning cards made by my friend "Viv" I knew I just had to have it.. I stamped 4 times and coloured the images with Promakers before cuting and layering them. The card and paper are from my stash, but Ive no idea where from. And the leaves were from a die by Marianne.



  1. This is lovely Issy. Your colouring is great and that die is gorgeous. I know what you mean about the decoupage challenge- I'm not heavily into cutting out freehand myself so rarely do decoupage but the cards do look great.
