Fabulous cards Coops. No.1 very typical of most men I'd say! No.2 would suit my hubby very much. He 'thinks' he can sing. I hear a pained wailing noise coming out of the conservatory when he's on 'Guitar Hero'. I think the kids are going to make him a card with this stamp today! Have a fab weekend! xx Jenny xx

Both cards are gorgeous, Nic! Love the image and the buttons on the first card, and I really like your corrugated card (I tell you every time, but I do love it!). I am still really fond of Sugar Nellie stamps, so, of course I love your second card! Great colouring as usual, perfect colour combo, fabulous layout and the string is brilliant! Enjoy your weekend! Hugs Delphine xx PS: Thank you for your lovely comments (& the one about my picture :-)!)
