Hi, good morning, what a fabulous sunny day today.. and I am so happy to be here at home on my day off enjoying my birthday :) Hubby gave me also some cash for my birthday and told me to buy me some clothes ... clothes ? .. nah !!!!  don't think so he he :()

Thought I would share a card before I head off to my craft room he he :) This is one of the ordered cards I was very busy doing. A colleague of mine wanted me to do her a card for her son, who is learning the guitar. Thought this image from The Stamping Boutique which I had, was just perfect for her. 
I coloured my stamp with my promarkers, yellow paper from my stash but I stamped the black dotted circles with my 'lost and found' clear stamp set from Inkadinkadoo.

... Remember me saying that I lost this stamp? ... well I found it again just last week. It was under a cupboard which is just a few cms above the floor!! I was so excited when I found it, because I was all the time using it to do male cards, and I missed it so much..

.. one of the best things I ever bought I think!! ... like my new stars die. ... love them... suddenly male cards seem to be easier... perhaps I just needed some more stash wink wink  :) 

This is the sketch that I followed from the Cardmaking and Papercraft

And here is another card I did for another colleague of mine. This one wanted a photo on her card. Being so busy I decided to just use the same layout and paper... as I thought it would be perfect for the type of photo... and luckily she loved it.

Happy Birthday Dora, enjoy your day.
Love the cards they are both great. That little stamp makes a big impact and I totally agree it works brilliantly for the male card but looks just as good on the female one to.

I love both your rock star cards! The first one is perfectly male - you are right, the stars are kinda the perfect accent for boys, huh? Gonna have to try that.
