Computer Guy ...

Good evening bloggers...

Well isn't the weather just fabulous. Hope it holds out for the weekend so we can make the most of it :-)

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments. I do look forward to reading them when I log on.

My card for today is a male card so no flowers again. I think I might be getting withdrawal symptoms.

I've used a digital stamp from Mo Manning for my brother-in-law's card. If you knew him you'd think he'd posed for it :-)  He's a bit of a computer whizz so this is right up his street.

My sister will have a good chuckle when she sees this.

I've used First Edition Up, Up & Away papers. The blues and greens in this pad are perfect for masculine cards. The edges have been distressed in Walnut Stain ink.

The Birthday sentiment is from the new LOTV Vintage Labels - Occasions and is mounted on a sign cut with the Marianne Creatable sign and lamp die.
The tag is shrink plastic with a phrase from an old stamp I had from Clarity Stamps. Just love this saying for men. Mind you who are we to talk with all our craft goodies :-)
I tried twice to get the text clearer but to no avail - oh well.

The card has been finished with matching papers inside.

Ok. I'm off to bed now so that I can take my son Swimming training at 4.45am tomorrow. It's a tough sport - 4 early mornings (5 - 7.30am) and 3 nights (5 - 7.30pm). The things you do as a Mum :-)

I haven't been able to get around all your blogs recently, but I shall be paying a visit after work tomorrow.
Until next time. Enjoy the sun.
