Craftmad September Card Swap - Male Card (No Blue)

Hi everyone, today I have one of the two swap cards I made for the Craftmad September swap (gallery here).  We had to create two male cards with no blue.  I have always liked shirt cards for male cards and came across some wonderful examples and tutorial by Deborah Wright I had to try.

I have used Stampin Up papers and card stock.  Started with a white blank card from Blue Edge Crafts therefore my card was a smaller size than Deborah's A4 fold in half.  I had fun adjusting the sizes, most of the time just eyeballing it and cutting shapes to what I thought worked.

Well I have been busy in the garden as I have some time at home.  My gardens were so dry and down to bare earth....I am sure I missed a year of mulching.  So I ordered 5m of mulch Tuesday and by Saturday arvo I had spread it amongst our five gardens.  The sad thing is I am at the most 2m too short.  The gardens look so much better and today we have had the tiniest bit of rain but hopefully enough to soak in to the mulch a little.  Still cloudy, so fingers crossed there is more to come.

Thanks for visiting. :-)
