A bit more Mikey

As my theme this week is male cards.......these Mikey downloads from Charmed Crafts and Cards are just perfect for the teenage/early twenties men in your life......so a couple of cards using him today.
The papers used on this one are some very old Basic Grey......a lot of layering.....and I thought the card candy just finished it off nicely.
I thought the clocks and keys theme [Bo Bunny papers] went well for the 18th  birthday card......and added an old key from our 'key tin'. Where do all the keys come from???? They seem to multiply in there!!!
Some challenges......Little Miss Muffet want 'metal'.....Scrapbook Sisters and Sweet Stamps want 'men/masculine'.

For someone who was feeling as though masculine cards were more difficult you sure have done a great job, the colours and the placement of embellishments is spot on!

The key addition really finishes it off - they are great Jacky :)

I have always loved the cards you make, but your man cards are the best ever.

That key looks like it has a real history behind it too.

Are you getting used to the big photos now? I think they make a fantastic job of showing off your beautiful things

Gorgeous card, love the layout.

Sorry I have not been able to visit your blog for a while, there has been blogging issues and personal issues.

I'm another big fan of #2, but must say the coloring on both of them is fabulous!
