Cooler day today.......!

Well, the sun's disappeared today and it looks like we might even get a spot of rain.  I must say, it's quite pleasant sat here by the window with a lovely cool breeze for a change!

I meant to post these earlier, but totally forgot!  At a recent BBQ for about 30 or so people, I made a selection of salads.  Knowing there were several people with nut or garlic allergies, as well as at least one vegetarian, I made these using my Sizzix Rosette die, attaching them to kebab sticks. 
I attached them to the outside of the bowls with Blu-Tack, so that they wouldn't fall over in the salads! They all survived, so I'll be able to use them again. It's a good way of using up those leftover bits of card!

Today's card is for a very young at heart 70 year old!  Cards with a male theme I still find more challenging, but this Papermania stamp so suits him.  
A Joy Fold card this time, kept closed with screw brads.  The tool embossing folder is so handy, especially when trying to get away from a sports theme. 

This photo shows how the card opens.
I would like enter this card for the following challenge:


  1. You have been busy Liz, and I love your rosettes, what a great idea! The male card is an unusual fold and I love the tool embossing folder and the Papermania stamp with the nice bold colours you have chosen. x

  2. I love this card! The embossing folder is perfect for this card. I love the toolbox and his handy man shirt. So cute.

  3. Great idea with those rosettes Liz! And I love the joy fold card - just perfect for a chap!

    You've been making me dizzy here - I always feature our newest playmates and show a card of theirs on the Sunday after they first came to play. Tee, hee - I have all three of your lovely makes to pick from so will just have to use a pin!!

    Spotted you in the letters and also Designer for a Day in QCME this month BTW! :)

    Hugs, Di xx

  7. Perusing your blog thanks to Darnell's intro. The 'allergy alert' medallions are a fabulous idea for any potluck affair and your masculine birthday card is perfect for a 'handy man.'

  8. A correction to my entry: I believe I renamed Darnell to Danielle. I do know better!

    1. I think you were correct the first time. ;-) Thanks for visiting my blog. x
