I’m so glad you stopped by today, I wanted to share with you these stamps from I Brake for Stamps, I think they are so much fun, you can find them in the humorous seniors stamps . There are a lot of really funny stamps in that area. The stamp is called kitting hats Hazel and the sentiment is so perfect for this stamp and it is called kitting and aerobics. Stampin up punch artisan label was used to punch out the sentiment.
Remember if you stop by I brake for Stamps use MY COUPON CODE SAVE10PAT you can save 10% on your order.
The paper came from my stash as we all get so many left over papers and I do not think I will ever use up all my papers. I cut one tooth pick in half to try and make it look like a knitting needles and colored it with a copic marker. Tim Holtz alteration sewing edge die cut. Added 6 eyelets.
Buttons, I have had and added scrapers floss color orange. Stampin up pom pom trim color tangerine tango.
For the inside I add a few stickers I had. Left open for a stamped sentiment or a written message. These are the copic markers and the copic multiliner sp I used to color the image.
I cut in half 3 pom poms and added them to Hazel’s basket for the look of fuzzy yarn. For the background I have these tiny stamps, no idea what they are called. Used distress ink colors dried marigold and scattered straw to have a look of may be wall paper. Added diamond glaze to her glasses from judi kinz.
Have a great week end. We are going to get snow, several inches tonight and more on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. So this is a good week end to say home and get some crafting done. SO HAPPY CRAFTING EVERYONE! But stay safe.

You may have noticed, things have been a little slow at Cards for Men, it has been a wonderful 4 years, I can remember when we first started in January 2010 I was so excited. I love making masculine cards as I have so many men in my family, how perfect is this design team and I get to meet people from all over the world and that is what happen. If I remember right I think all 4 years I was the only person from the US but that was fine. From the beginning Our faithful leader Donna from Donna Den of crafts (who is the best & good friend), Shirley a lot of you might know her as nannieflash (her blog & good friend) and myself have always been their. So this is sad for us and to see the other designers leave, it has been fun seeing all the fantastic creations everyone has done. I do look forward in seeing them on other design teams or in cyber land. Things have change for Donna and life just happens so the challenges and winners for Cards for Men. At the time when Donna started this challenge blog she highlight the need to make more of Male cards and now their has huge change in the availability of images and accessories specifically aimed at Men's Cards. There's also a lot more dedicated challenge blogs around. Hopefully, she had something to do with that.

The spellbinder used to cut the stamp out is mega classic scalloped ovals large.
I started to make a swig on the side but I think it looks like a mini Christmas tree. Sponged the edges with brilliance ink color beige. Viva pearl pen color gold.
Cut out spellbinder mega scalloped oval die and sponged the edges and added the sentiment. Memory box pine needles die and used the pine cones from impression obsession die097-M.
Here is a closer look of the swig, used the needles from the impression obsession die097-M. 6 petal punch, very tiny flower and a star punch. Added a tiny bow.
These are the copic markers used to color the image. Here is the close up.
I wanted to share with you an quilted ornament I made for my niece for her Christmas tree. They are not that hard to make.
I added crystals and decorated mine different from the ones I seen on you tube.
What do you give a girl that has EVERYTHING??? So I made her wine glass crystal rings.
Don’t forget to stop by and check out the designers cards, everyone one did a fantastic job. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you did not get much snow this week end, we did get about 4 inches but it was fluffy and sure was pretty out side, very thing sparkled.
