It's another WOYWW again.  I've been a bit busy on the old crafting trays and here is one of the cards I've been working on.  I was sent a lovely set of stamps with 'guy' things on and although I've stamped them up I've not put them on a card yet.  Time to remedy the situation!!!

Most of us struggle with men cards, but sometimes inspiration strikes and I've made a few lately. 
Here's the finished card amongst all the other 'craft stuff' on my trays/bed workdesk (LOL!!!).  The oval came in a lovely parcel from Gill.  When she sends me some cards for the charities, she includes some die cuts or papers, or glitter, it's always a lovely surprise and I like to show people who help me out that I am using the items they gave me.  I've got a little envelope now which I can just delve into to find the perfect piece of card I'm looking for!

Have fun on this sunny WOYWW!!!

Great 'Man Cards' - I really like the colourway you've used :) And how lovely is that people send you cards and bits and pieces. Would your charity be able to use things like fabric tissue covers, pin cushions etc? I could easily make them out of scraps and it would be a wonderful thing to support. Please email me your address and I'll try and send you some stuff.
Thank you for your lovely comments about Mum, I really do appreciate it.

Great man card, love the tones. Men cards 'n' me, well I'd rather give it a miss if I can - how awful of me. Tee Hee

Super card Karen! You made a gorgeous snippets card while I was away - the wedding one. You can add it to the roll call and back link into your blog if you like. Maybe a push on the swings will be welcome - sweltering and airless here right now - and that's Hampshire! Di xxw

I thought that looked like a bed, or at least someplace very comfy, in that one picture. How nice of your friend to send you little bits and bobs to play with. Why is that other people's scraps are so much more fun than our own? I agree that sometimes guy cards are hard and other times they fall into place. Great looking card!
