Life's uncertain

My aunt asked for a card for my cousin's birthday. Men, they are the worst to make cards for. This one, in fact, was actually not that hard. Somehow it just fell into place. Aren't I lucky! I have 3 more male cards to make, so let me not get excited too quickly.

The stamp is by Stampendous, and I coloured it with Lyra pencils, blended with baby oil. I must say, Stampedous always have the cutest project of the month cards, but they haven't updated it for so long..... What's happening, anyone out there know why they're not showing us new projects...?

I finally made a 'double' fold card, not sure how to refer to the way it closes. I've been wanting to try it for ages now and managed it at last. Not that it was hard, just that I never did it.

Well, that's all for now, got to rush my pasta is cooking down stairs, and the children are waiting for dinner.

Great card Meahni & such gorgeous colouring :-)
It is very hard making male cards but you've done a fine job with colours & embellishments!
Was looking up a cardmaking book I have & I'm wondering if this style of card would be called a 3 panel card?
Hear from you soon - Mar x
