Some Masculine Cards

Life has been busy...we had a busy weekend...sometimes time just seems to fly on by...I dont know where it goes half the time!  I spent a few hours in the garden on Sunday.  I have been working on my front garden planting those 19 Nandinas and mulching and weeding etc etc.  Only half the garden is done so still another half to is turning out really nice though and is a huge improvement on what is was when we moved in here in January.  I will post some pics of it soon.  Tonight I have some cards to share.  I needed some male cards on hand...for those male birthdays that pop up.  I hardly make male cards so I made six of these for my stash.  For the card below I made three that are exactly the same so I only took one photo of those.
I used papers from DCWV Alphabet Stack.  This has been my most used DCWV paper pack of all.  There isnt much left of it.  I love silver, black and white together.  I kept the cards clean and simple in style and used my silver gel pen on some for the stitching and just a black SU marker on the others.  The stamping I kept very simple - black ink on whisper white card.
I would like to play along with:

I am working towards having a stall at the markets in December so am aiming to get a big stash of cards ready for that.  I have about 60 cards at the moment in my getting there.  How many cards do people make for market stalls?  I guess about 200 would be a nice collection.  I would be interested in what you think....

Am at work for four days this week so busy, busy, busy...will be hoping to catch up on all my commenting over the next few nights.  Hope your week has started off well...we have had three machines play up in the last couple of days...our ride on lawnmower, our pump (for water to the house) and now our washing machine.  I am so glad we have reached that number three and now hopefully things will start working again...

Thanks for visiting my blog.
