Men, guys & dads and brothers

One week over, two more to go. This week was spent in lectures and catching up on some essay work. But I did manage to sneak in some crafty time. For the most part I made some cards for a swap party (2x9 cards). You will get to see them in July when all the participants have received theirs. Apart from the swap I made a guy-themed card set.

" Nobody had time to warn them - the group of men heard everything."

Some found words to make it mysterious - those men stand funnily in a row and I can't think why. Who would have taken such a photo and for what purpose?

Sorry for the crappy quality, here they are again:

June being the month for Father's day in many countries (not all) there are several challenges at the moment calling for masculine cards or cards for dads. Which isn't the same in my book. So the above I will enter into:
Paperminutes: #438 green-grey-black
Moo-mania: Masculine
TioT: It's all about him

For the daddies out there I placed my favorite father and son into a sunny setting:
"Let's sit here, Son, the sun is shining."
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday: Father's Day
Lunagirl: Fathers and Brothers

The backgrounds on all cards were done with my recently discovered 'scrappy method' which I have blogged here and here. It suits me fine: I can hold on to little pieces of paper, but get to use them (instead of just hoarding for ever). When using, I do try to select colors that go together, but I always paint and/ or stencil on top to make them look uniform but still interesting.
