Make My Monday week 53

Wow Monday's come around real quick when you're retired and having fun!!  This is the second week of  MMM                          JUNE AND ASSOCIATED EVENTS 
This week the challenge is to create a Father's Day/ Masculine card.                         
I had already made two cards, one for my son Dom to give to his dad and one for Keir congratulating him on his first Father's Day. I'll post those further down just in case they see the post because they would not be bothered to read it all:)
I was going to make a card with ties on and then I saw a card on the CardMaker newsletter and decided to CASE their idea and here it is:)
All the instructions are available on their newsletter and are easy to follow as I have just proved :)
                                                                          White base card
                                                                        Anna Griffin paper
                                                                          Walnut stain DI
                                                             Freebie stamps from a  magazine
Now here are the other two cards I mentioned earlier, both created on Craft Artist and personalise for the recipients.

This one is for my OH from Dom. Jim has been doing loads of decorating this past year and various odd jobs around the house and we thought this image was perfect and I just added his head on and decoupaged it!

This one is for Keir on his first Father's Day and he's doing a brilliant job! I love this photo of Charlie and I think the text matches his expression:)
Again crafted on Craft Artist with some decoupage.

Thanks for staying with me on this rather long post and hopefully you will leave me a comment so that I can visit you!

They're all fabulous. Val. Wonderful shirt & tie card, and I love Mr. DIY. I'm sure Keir will be delighted to receive the one from cute little Charlie x

Hi Val! Thanks for your nice comment! I always appreciate your comments!
You are a very busy bee - 3 cards! I love the 1st one with the tie most - cool shaped card! It´s so hard to do cards for men... at least for me... you don´t seem to have any problems with masculine cards! :-) Great job!
Have a wonderful evening!

A super set of cards, that personalized DIY Dad card is just brilliant, he will really appreciate it, and that 'First Fathers Day card is so sweet. Must pop over and see how the shirt and tie is done, thanks for the link.
