Be Amazing

I've been busy making more masculine cards
Another one of our male friends has a birthday tomorrow and on Wednesday my brother celebrates his birthday too! I'll share the card I made for him later in the week

Making masculine cards is not always easy but fortunately the lovely MME Be Amazing papers have kept me inspired ... I just love this set ... 


It's not easy to get new releases here in the UK - by time we get them ... The USA is onto another set


... but I'm making use of every last bit of these papers


and I'm loving stars at the moment too ... Can you tell?

We've had lovely weather this weekend and now it has turned cold again ... 
The Battle of The Atlantic commemorations have been very well attended and I have a couple of photos taken by my brother to show you


You can see our museum in the background and if you look closely you can just make out a guy being winched out of that helicopter on a mock rescue ... My brother took these shots from way across the bay (click to enlarge)



A Spitfire over the tower

And I just had to share a cute photo he took awhile ago


How sweet!

Enjoy your day my friends ... I'll be back tomorrow

Thanks for stopping by

Masculine cards are a challenge that you handle very well, and this paper is just the one for them. Love your card with the stars and the bicycle... perfect! It must be frustrating to not get the latest papers... can you order online? We have only Michaels and Joanns close by and they don't carry the companies that I like. I order nearly all mine from Blue Moon Scrapbooking. http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/
They say they have reasonable international shipping rates... I'm not sure what that means, but you could check it out.
Thanks for sharing the photos... love to see what's going on everywhere else. That tower looks amazing!
Have a wonderful day! We are headed to Amish country to grocery shop.
Hugs!
