Cards from Brenda and Jenny

These ladies have created these lovely cards using a variety of techniques to give us some wonderful ideas.

I find making cards for men the hardest to put together and especially if they don’t have a hobby that you can use as a theme. This card with a car on would suit any guy as you can almost gurarantee they drive a car. It will also bring back some great memories if you use a car design from yesteryear. Thank you for this great idea Jenny.
