All about him!

Hello and welcome to coffee towers, Today I have made a card for a couple of the chaps in our lives, A Dad card and one for a Grand father.
Well I don't know about you but I rarely feel as if I have made a 'good' card for a chap! Talking to the male members of my family it would seem that they aren't particularly bothered about cards anyway LOL So it would seem all my angst is wasted!! Ah well, what do you think? Do your chaps take any interest in their cards? I'd be very interested to know :D
Anyhoo here are my offerings for the Craft Barn this week which is all about men, check out the Craft Barn blog if you have a moment because all week there will be masculine offerings!

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful day :D Gay xx
(As you are reading this I am off on a short break away ( hopefully:D) so this post is scheduled, I will catch up with you on my return)
I used;
 Stamps from IndigoBlu Mr Fan-tash-tic 
Tim Holtz stamps:  Way With Words and Steampunk 
Hobby Art stamps Butterfly Kisses Nautical

Forgot to say... the men in my family etc ... are not interested in cards ... only what comes in side!! My partner doesn't believe in card giving at all!(no help there then) so he doesn't get any!! ;)

LOVE these, perfect for men Gay, but as you say most of them are not interested, although we have a friend who gets upset if he doesn't get his card. 4 brothers and BIL, not fussed at all.

They look fabulous. My husband says he loves the cards that I make for him. But I don't think he really is a Card kinda guy, if you know what I mean. :) Hope you have a fabulous break my friend.


Hettie said...

Great cards there Gay. I am with you on the Men cards. I always have a problem.
Hope you are having a good trip away.

I think it's safe to say the guys in my family don't really 'get' cards. The most I get out of hubby, when I've produced something I'm particularly proud of, is "yes, that'll do, won't it?" !!
REALLY love these - that is such a fabulous stamp.

Paper Creations by Shirley said...

Both are fabulous designs, love the combination of images. Hope you are doing well, Shirleyxx


Hope you are having a relaxing holiday with lots of sunshine Gay. Love these masculine cards - the images are perfect for Father's Day.
I'm ashamed to admit it, but I rarely make cards for the males in our family, although last year I did make a special 18th card for my eldest Grandson and he loved it. It had a cycling theme, which is his passion!

Love the unusual design, I think they should be well admired. My hubby goes through my cards to select which one to send to each male relative so am I lucky, lol. xx Flora

Viv said...

Great cards both of them Gay, super stamping and images too.Yes I hate making male cards too. I don't think they are too bothered about what they get or even if they get a card at all lol!!! I make quick ones for them, except for my BIL and he loves my cards and raves about everyone. I make a special effort with his, running out of ideas now though, hope he likes this years.Yes I am feeling better now after my cough thanks :)hugs Viv xx

Hi Gay . . .it seems I have some catching up on your blog to do . . . it hasn't "updated" over at my blog until today! Naughty Mr Blogger!

Anyhoo, I digress, these 2 male cards are fab.

My husband does take an interest in the handmade cards he receives.
