Let's Celebrate You

 Good morning, hope you had a good Bank Holiday weekend and you weren't too inconvenienced by all the airport holdups, road and rail works that were going on. Easter weekend is not the time to go on the roads, in my opinion, especially this year as it's the first holiday since Covid restrictions were fully lifted, we Brits are like lemmings heading for the coast at the first opportunity!

Anyway the good weather allowed me some time in the garden but I also had time to make a card for the new Cardz4Guyz challenge. Here's what I came up with using the new theme of :-


I used the current challenge at The Male Room as my starting off point and included a tag cut from an embossed panel and these cute critters from MFT.

I took a panel of white card, trimmed to give me a border when added to an A6 card. The tag was cut from it using a Poppystamps die, then embossed with a Cuttlebug EF that I've had since I started making cards many years ago. Behind the tag opening, I added a snippet of DP and I then glued the panel onto an A6 white base card. On some Copic friendly card, I stamped the 3 critters from MFT's Birth-Yay set, coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them out. Using another ancient MS grass punch I cut two strips of green card and added them to my tag. A hole was punched in the tag and a bit of jute twine was added before gluing the tag at a jaunty angle. The animals were added along with the stamped sentiment strip to complete.

So where will the theme take you? If you need more inspiration why not check out the rest of the team here.

Cute or Flowers
I went cute, well I usually do, especially as flowers aren't exactly masculine! Cute cards are always needed when you have 2 socially active Grandsons as well.


  1. Super cute...perfect for your active grandsons and our "tag you're it" challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz!! That "window" tag is super creative and great inspiration to those who decide to play along with our new challenge!!

  2. A very cute card Julie, I bet it was a tricky choice though as you "do" florals beautifully too. Another fab entry for AYLI. We stayed put for the Easter weekend far too Peopley out there for my liking!! x

  3. Ooh, forgot to say that I love the way you have used the tag die, great idea!

  4. I'm glad your inspiration came from TMR ;) I absolutely LOVE your card, great embossing folder, the images and grass on the tag are just great.Thank you so much for joining us in our Dry Embossing challenge at The Male Room Good Luck and I hope you will join us in our next challenge.
