One Eye On The Calendar...

Hi folks...crikey we're halfway through September already and there's no getting away from it...Christmas is just around the corner...(only 100 days away if I've got the maths right)...now that is one scary thought. I'm knee deep in kitting for The Retreat at The Papeterie which is less than 2 weeks away and even scarier...in 6 weeks' time I'll be donning my Fiskars hat again and heading for the NEC...blimey for someone who normally doesn't know or care to be honest which day of the week it is...life in the cubbyhole is suddenly ruled by the calendar.
And with no new stuff that I can share with you...I've had to dig into the archives. Over the next few days I'll be posting some "MEN" cards...the ones I made for the "Cards and Crafts for Christmas 2014" book....the cards that always seem to send us crafters into a bit of a spin...
No frilly flouncy or glittery stuff allowed so I looked out my favourite Fiskars Fuse Die...the gorgeous Snowflake and set to work to create a modern contemporary card with lots of masculine texture...
 a bit of embossing...hessian...woven paper and Eclectic Elements to create texture and circles punched from Tim Holtz Merriment Paper Stash to add a pop of colour...
I'll be back tomorrow to share another "for the boys" card
Hugs Kath xxx

While I am decidedly female, I'd still love to receive this beautiful card! I think it could go either way.
