Do it Yourself

Morning all.  I hope you are ready for a new Cardz4guyz challenge as it's my turn to pick the subject.  No pressure, but I'm expecting you all to join in.  My subject is DIY.  Couldn't be easier for a Guy card surely.

I chose to use Carpenter Joe from Tiddlyinks for my DIY cards.  I can't actually remember why I purchased this one, or if I've ever used it before.  It did fit the bill though so I'm not complaining.  I also got to use a very old spellbinders die cut sign that has been sat forever in the box.  I think it was one of my first dies when I got my old wizard years ago.  I've used the tools but never the sign.  It just goes to show, if you hang onto it long enough, it will come in handy for something.

I even went daft and splattered some paint on my background - and you all know how I hate making a mess like that.

I used a few brads in the corners and flung some card candy at it (well, the middle bit looked too empty).

Right, your turn.  Pop over and see the fabulous DT inspiration and I'm looking forward to commenting on all your entries.

Thanks for reading.

  5. Hi, Dawn! Your cute little carpenter is the perfect "encourager" for anyone who is responsible for repairs, or as a sweet thank you card for someone who has recently helped out! It defines my hubby perfectly! I especially like all the precious details and colors! hugs, de
