My bro in laws card

I know im gonna sounds soooo horrible as i write this lol but its the truth, i hardly see my bro in law an his wife as my hubby and him arent too close,

So i didnt want to go to too much effort and use my best stash
( i know i can hear you all gasp at my selfishness but really have you never done that before not even once lol)
However i didnt want to make a BAD card lol,Now as you can see its a definate CAS card if ever you saw one, but i did put some thought into it as he likes his sports,I thought id choose basic pastel colours and pop a bit of faux stitching on and leave it at that,


  • dovecraft papers
  • sakura white glsze pen
  • blue thin card stock
  • stamped sentiment was from a craft fayre and was a second but stamped out fine i thought? no brand on it,
  • craftwork card candy
  • 5x5 card blank

Well I think this is a wonderful card...and I hope appreciates the effort. Terrific sentiment. I must admit I am a little slacker on cards that I know people aren't crafters and don't appreciate the time.

Well I always think cards for men are difficult anyway, and they never appreciate the effort you've gone to !!! I think your card is lovely, and perhaps he'll appreciate it as the sentiment is lovely. Annette xx (Incy Wincy DT)
