Boozey Boys Cards!!

Hi all you lovely bloggers,
 
I know the gardens needed rain, but typical of this country, everything regarding weather is extreme! From baking us for weeks, we now get soaked every day. I have been dodging the thunder, lightening and heavy down pours. My tumble dryer is in the garage and I have to run in between the rain drops!  
 
That was yesterday, as I started typing this post last night. It got to 2am and I felt rather tired, so left it to finish this morning! We have a very sunny day at the moment.
 
Firstly today, I must welcome my new followers. Thank you so much for taking the time to join me as a follower. I have returned the favour. I hope you like what you see here.
 
I decided to make a few male cards for my stock. CAS I thought for speed. The Birthday Beer one was a stamp I have had for many years. Don't know where it came from but it's part of a set with a motorbike. I coloured it with a mixture of Inktense Pencils and Copics. For the foam on the top of the glass, I used Americana Writer acrylic dimensional paint. I bought it last year for snow on Christmas cards, to which I added glitter. I then put Glossy Accents onto the glass. Sadly this has not been picked up by the camera. The gloomy dark days were not the best for taking photos. ( Nothing to do with me being crap at taking pics.Lol!)
 
 
 
This stamp I bought at Ally Pally last year. It was from Creative Expressions, unmounted, in a box with hundreds of loose stamps. I also bought a few rather rude sentiment stamps. Don't know if I would use them but they just made me laugh.
 
I stamped it twice and cut out the grapes and used Pinflair Glue Gel to 3D them. 

 
 
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments. I do really appreciate them.
 
Hugs,
Carol xx

Hi Carol, two lovely CAS male cards. The beer stamp is from Personal Impressions, I have had it in my stash for ages too, but very useful.

Stunning creations, loving the image and the colour combo too. Great card for the boozer lol..... Oh wow power in prayer or the power and determination and will of an old man to keep on living....his smile today was priceless and he actually ate a bit of porridge and soup for me today. Yesterday we were told to tell family and have his Last Rights given by the Priest, he was not able to open the Golden Gates... I have decided to come home this evening after spending all night with him and try and relax....and this is how I relax....thanks for your sweet thoughts, I value my friends here...♥aNNie
