 Hello everyone,

I am into making masculine cards of late but sailed away from Nautical until the urge sneaks back in, and now leaning towards masculine vehicle cards..but also very much into my other new style which will be here soon..

first up, I needed some mugs of beer, now I DO NOT 
condone drinking and driving, it's just that mugs of beer make a good masculine [or feminine] embellishment.

So mugs of beer were made and coloured..

and lots of pictures printed and trimmed with logos and signs..

paper scraps..

and look at this gorgeous grungy style it.

So cut into this sheet with shaking hands, fancy cutting it.ha ha ha.

After panels were ready, I decided I needed a tool box,
one or die cuts at a time until there was enough to fill the box..

and filled it up...the tools got paper pieced with silver foil card stock as necessary..
and coloured handles too..

Then started putting the panels together..

and yes, I'm going with an  easel..

a double easel..

the tool box is the stopper..

all the pictures I used as ephemera and layered them all up, doesn't matter if some get covered, I printed plenty, and that is what I want..

a bit of a side view to show all the panels big or small were covered..

and there we go..DONE!!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
I'll be around with DT's in next couple of days so see you then.
