May Blog Hop

Hello and welcome,
I'm back on the blog hop again  and this months theme is 'Something For The Men'.
Back in January I held a class on male cards. so I have used two sets I like the most.    

Lovely as a Tree :

This card was made using the Mighty Oak 
I was showing how versatile this card can be for many events Birthday, Retirement, Sympathy.

Nailed it:

I am so sad that this set is retiring as I love it. (It has now moved to my keeps shelf) 
I would like to thank my down line Linda Ellis for letting me CASE this card which of course I had ideas for tweaking moving the tools higher and adding the Happy Fathers day at the bottom of the tape.

Urban District

Also retiring is Urban District which I have used to make my fathers day card.

Thank you for looking at my blog please carry on the blog hop and see what other projects have been made by the talented Jems.

Go back to see Sharon Glynn

Go forward to see Allie Jolliffe
