Make it masculine


Morning Peeps, time for our new Allsorts challenge and this week our host is Ellie who would like to see 'Masculine' creations. Our prize is from Bee Crafty.

Writing my own post solo as its been a better week, seen a new neurologist private of course, seems the only way to get things moving, an increase in the not so nice meds so might be a bit of a back step to lal la land but if they work long term have to go with it.

For my bird card I used stamps from the lovely Bev at Bee Crafty along with Distress Oxides also at a super price as well as the lovely funky border stamps. I sent this off to her and she told me her Mum spirited it away somewhere.

I seem to be making a habit of being late with DT work this week, here's my mid month Penny Black and More and Stamping Sensations mid month pieces......the lifts working again, but oh so slowly!

hi B. Good and bad news, good news you’re going solo but not good Renee’s, but as you say if hey work, you may have to go with it.
I loved the greeting on the the pink lipstick card... hilarious 😂 🤣😊
And the card with “blessings on your special day”, I can see why it was whisked away... great bird one too, might be able to join in the Allsorts Male Card this week, we’ll see!
Prayer hugs dear B, for continued improvement.

Oh Brenda, I'm so happy to read your own solo post!! Yay!
Usually private medicians works better than the other, so I hope that the new medicines could help you better!!!
Fabulous inspirations, the cards have amazing yellow tones, such sweet spring feel!! The tag especially catches my eyes, with that vintage look and the funny sentiment... funny, but sometime so real for our women's feel, isn't it? :D
Sending big hugs and positive waves on your way!!

You are amazing Brenda. I understand you've been (and are) terribly unwell and yet here you are making fabulous works of art on your cards. I take my hat off to you.

Hope the meds help you to get better ASAP.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Oh Brenda, so good to see you going solo, albeit slowly. Praying the increase in the dose of meds is well tolerated and you are back to good levels of function soon.
Love your fabulous cards, and it's awesome that you are even creating. I think all on Design Teams have been late at some time or another!
Blessings and prayers

Greta said...

Glad you've had some better days, Brenda. Always a double edged sword with meds, but good to get another opinion & maybe they'd be worth it, as you say. Lovely work--especially drawn to the first one!
