Masculine 50th Birthday card

I don’t make many masculine cards and those I do are upon requests with a theme like hiking, golfing, wine… so I just create a digital image with my Silhouette Portrait and make a 3D card. But today I wanted to make a “normal” card which could be generic for any masculine birthdays and that…

Purely die cuts

The kids are back from their holiday in Spain and even though I am soooo happy to see them again after 2 weeks, they have thrown my crafting schedule (and every other schedule) out the window! There was also the yearly “Oath Monday” here in Ulm where, in the tradition of the constitution of the…
