Anything Goes at Cardz 4 Guyz

Time for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week our theme is Anything Goes so plenty of scope for your masculine cards there. For my card I've turned this sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge

I saw this idea yonks ago at a demonstration by Kate Evans and thought it was about time I used it.. The sticks were from Wilko - they were sold in the gardening section and reduced to 10p for a large pack. The stamp was a 50p find in a charity shop - Julia's House shops in Dorset apparently get a lot of old stock from Hobbycraft so I always look in if I'm passing

  1. What a clever idea Kim, I will have to remember that one. :)

  2. Who would have thought that popsicle sticks could be used like this? Thanks for the new trick! It looks so cool on the card.

  3. so stunning kim.really love how you have used the lolly sticks for the image, so clever :D

  4. Stamping on the sticks was an absolutely brilliant idea! Very cool vintage card!

  5. I love your masculine card. Would you let me showcase your card and share a link to your blog post in what I call Manly Monday? It's a post on my blog where I share masculine cards (of all ages) as inspiration for my readers. If you are interested, please email me a direct link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com and I will add you to the lineup for the following Monday. I hope to hear from you.
