Hello Everyone..

Gosh!..I thought I had better put something up on my blog before it went rusty..been a while..
I managed to face plant myself yesterday by getting my foot tangled in a hoover cord..lucky I didn't break my glasses but made my nose bleed and have 2 very pretty purple eyes this

Anyway, I will bounce back..had my day off today and got plenty done, but cannot show those yet..but I have some spares to share in my photos file and more for the men..

A flying Eagle [ or could be a hawk, not sure]...such a neat photo off the net..

Added some feathers, pine leaves dies, tree bark..

And a beautiful Stallion..papers from my scrap box, Marianne creatables fence...buttons and string..

Bark on this one too....for a clients Son's 60th birthday..

Last but not least...a magnificent Owl in full flight..

No papers, just corrugated  and box cardboard...splatters of white paint and more bark..

There he is..isn't he lovely...

And a side view...

So there we go..three more male cards, which I love doing...nice and thick with their layers..

Challenges to enter....

Yikes on the face plant!!! So glad you weren't seriously hurt but know it had to have stung just a little too. Ooch! I'd love to hear the fun story you tell everyone about what those eyes look like now!

Chrissy, each one of these cards are spectacular! WOW! Beautiful cards for the guys. Love the one with the horse and all those details. That owl and eagle are stunning too. Fabulous!

Poor you! Hope it's not too painful and the bruising fades quickly!

These are all so fabulously designed, Chrissy. There are lots of beautiful photos on the web, but I tend to forget that's an option.
Beautiful detailing on all of them. I love how you went all 'nature' with your third card, it's gorgeous.
