Masculine Cards

I was recently asked by my Mum's friend to make some cards - but for a 12 year old boy - aaargh, that's such a difficult age! and I'm always at a complete loss when it comes to masculine cards - so I set myself a challenge, to make a bunch of them to get over my "phobia". Here are a few I made recently, I'm not sure if they would suit a 12 year old but I'm pretty pleased with them as suitable for men. I hope you like them.

I've got a new toy...

A Photo Cube Light Box - and I think it makes taking pictures of my cards a heck of a lot easier, and I think the cards look so much better than in my previous efforts! I still need to practice (and iron the back cloth) but for a first attempt I'm pretty pleased!
