Manly, yes, but I like it, too!

Here are my cards for May's Waltzingmouse Stamps Pajama Party. The theme for the first two challenges was cards for men. Reminded me of the old Irish Spring soap commercial, where the woman says it's scent is "manly, yes, but I like it, too!"

First up, Man of the Moment - any occasion for any aged male. I told Claire man cards stump me, so she advised to put plaid on it. Good advice!

Second up, Surprise Him. This is a summer anniversary card. The heart is WMS, the fan is Tim Holtz and the sentiment was computer generated.

For Old Pajamas, here is my Mother's Day card for my mum, using the Camellia set.

See this tag?

That itty bitty bow was cut out on the Silhouette Cameo and measures 5/8ths of an inch wide!

I skipped the sketch challenge - ran out of time! Thanks for looking!

I'm a sucker for white embossing. Love how that turned out!

See? plaid works a dream - particularly nice shade of aqua you used with the wood Charmaine! Your fan card absolutely ROCKS! love that little window - so bookmarking that! You have gorgeous texture on your camellia card also - it's a stunner - thank you so much for playing along! Good luck - I'm just about to do the draw!!

I would never have known you got stumped on masculine cards Charmaine - I think a woodgrain background is always a winner, as well as plaid! Your hidden fan is inspired - what a great idea and I love all the texture on your Camelia pretty and feminine!

Sorry Charmaine, I thought I had visited your PJ posts before but somehow managed to miss them. They're brilliant - especially your surprise card. I love it and your thunk up sentiment is very cool!!! Got my cogs going now
