A Hipster Birthday

Good morning and happy Friday, it's nearly the weekend!. It's Sue here with my second 'anything except cute' piece and as I needed a 'man' card, I've raided  my Tim Holtz stash. Tim never lets me down, and he certainly wont in the foreseeable future - have you seen all the lovely stuff he keeps bringing out, I think I may have to go back to work! Anyway, here's my card.

There are a lot my pictures here on my blog. Have a very happy day, and thanks very much for looking x

More love in February

Hello it's Jane here with my 2nd project to hopefully inspire you to join our "anything but cute" February challenge  For this card I stayed with the "love" feel of February but rather than a Valentine's card I designed a general non cute love card.
I made a metal background using aluminium tape...if you would like to see how I did this just pop over to my blog here where I will  foil  share my process with you. Remember that February is a short month so you only have 1 more week to enter and possibly win the £20 crafting voucher to stock up on all the fab new products that have been arriving on the Country View craft website. 

Bye for now,

Anything But Cute

Its Miriam again, here to share my second project of the month.

I hope you are loving the inspiration as much as I am.

Here is my second project

I think we can certainly say that 'cute' does not feature in this, and I had great fun making it!

Pop over to my blog to see how I created this panel.

I hope that I have inspired you to join in with the Challenge for this month.  Don't forget, you could be in with a chance of winning a voucher to spend in the online shop.

Happy Crafting!
