"Lets get Sporty" - Challenge 13

Cards for Men Challenge - Let's get sporty
I have had an impulse to use my Molly Bloom stamps
and now every project seem to incorporate at least one stamp!
Backing paper has had faux stiching applied to the edge alone
with the invert corner punch being used. The second
backing paper has been punched around the edge with
the Cherish punches by Martha Stewart.
The motor bike stamped image has been cut out
using a Spellbinder Nesting die. 

This challenge starts on 24th June and ends 7th July
and is sponsored by 'That Craft Place' 
Come along and join in you never know you may win!
I am entering this card into the following challenge's:


Baby - Male or Female

I have put a couple of baby cards together that will
work for either male or female.
I have used the new arrival set from Papermania and have
only added some ribbon as the set has everything
needed to complete a good finished card.
I have edged the papers with ink so there is not a white
edge to be seen  -  this does give a professional finish.

I have used my punches by Martha Stewart on the second card.
Thank you for any comments left they are much appreciated.

Camera case

Padded Camera Case
Well I gave up trying to find my camera case, I have been
looking for ages and still it's not to be found, so enough was enough.
I decided it cannot be too difficult, I will make my own and
here it is! 
I used Spots and Strips pastel range of fabric.
Brights button and wadding from my stash.

I did not measure or use any pattern which to the trained eye
is probably obvious, but it suits my needs.
