A Masculine Freshly Made

Hello bloggers,

I had a hankering to do a masculine card for this week's sketch by Linda C over at Freshly Made Sketches. Remember I said I'd been to the Stitches and Craft Show in Sydney? Well, I picked up a new blokey stamp for the bargain price of $2.00. To be honest I thought it might be pretty poor quality but I was pleasantly surprised:

Moustaches seem to be all the rage at the moment in the stamping world don't they?  I liked the shape of this handlebar moustache so I stamped it once on the card, then stamped another to put over the top of it and curled the edges. The paper is from a 6x6 paper pad by Authentique....another good buy for $5.00 and perfect papers for masculine cards. Bargains eh? Don't you just love 'em?!

Have a great day!
