Men cards

I know I'm not the only one who find inspiration for "Men Cards" difficult. When I was asked to make a special 70th birthday card for a favourite uncle who likes cars and dominoes I was almost FROZEN WITH FEAR! Searched through my stash - couldn't find anything suitable; hunted around Hobbycraft - nothing there I liked; went to my local craft shop (MSA Crafts) and found the vintage La Pashe decoupage kits - what a relief - I don't like letting people down when I've promised to make a card.

Anyway, the customer was very pleased with the card and so was the recipient ... and I breathed a sigh of relief!
Keep saying I'm going to just do WYSIWYG cards but I always cave in!
(WYSIWYG = what you see is what you get!)
