PTW - Hamish playing rugby


Anyone who follows my blog will know that I never make male cards - just have never had any inspiration to do so. However, this really cute Hamish was one of the stamps that came with my design pack from Sugar Nellie and I have been looking at him for over a week now and decided that today was the day!



I have followed the wonderful sketch my Dawny over on Papertake Weekly challenge and I hate to admit it, but I just love this card and may even ber persuaded to try some more for the boys.

As I already mentioned, the stamp is Sugar Nellie, DP is by Dovecraft as are the brads and sentiment was cut using my cricut.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Karen, me again. Thanks for letting me know about the promarkers. I have been on the funky kits website and had a look at some on there. I am thinking of getting some for christmas but was wondering if you could recommend which set/s to go for seeing as you already have some! There are quite a few and it has thrown me a bit!
Thanks, Vicky x
