Out with the cute and in with the flippin men....

....well only out with the cute for this one...lol. This is for a very dear friend of ours and I've done a spinner card using the 'Flippin Cheers' sheet from the Flippin Men range by La Pashe. This fella is so like our friend John, from the moustache, down to the waistcoat and tie, in fact the only thing that isn't John is the cap, but it's cold out there so he needs a cap..lol.







There is a front and behind view, bloomin thing kept spinning, and took me 20 photo's whilst spinning to get a good one of the front and behind..lol.
The papers in the corners are from scraps stash. Using the darker brown I cut the lattice side borders in my bug and added two buttons to either end of the lattice strips. The sentiment was included with the sheet. Finished with some of the diamond scraps from the lattice work along the top and either side of the sentiment.


Has anyone else been having problems with Blogger? I had problems uploading pictures and seeing other's pictures on their blogs last night but all seemed ok this morning. But just had problems again uploading these pictures, took three attempts and my blog challenge list has gone all strange, and when I click on them it says I need to subscribe to the feed. The gremlins must be at work.

Hi Jo-anne love this card I always struggle making mens cards they are just to hard, mine always tend to be to cute or to girlie.
I have heard of people having problems with blog land I haven't as yet but the day is still young.
Stay safe

Great card, Joanne, I've tried putting the images on acetate but couldn't get them to line up without bits overlapping, my bad cutting out methinks..gave up in the end, so a big well done on doing the spinner.
Oh and a Happy New Year too.

Brill card joanne, just one question.... why you moaning it kept spinning? Wasn't it meant to? Hehe!!

Crafting Joanne said...

Lol...Lou. Yes I'm glad it spins, but I had to trim off a bit of the froth on his pint as kept catching on both sides of the aperture. The trouble was it just kept spinning by itself...lol, kept stopping it and got it steady, then by the time I was ready with my camara, it started off again with no help...lol. Joanne x
