Cards for men

Good morning everyone, I hope you all enjoyed the bank holiday weekend. The weather here was miserable, raining most of the time, but that just gave me a good excuse to sit in and craft.
Before I show you what I've been making today, I'm going to share a couple of cards I made for my dad and a friends dad for Father's Day this year.
I know I'm late sharing these, but I have got loads of cards and craft fair items, that I've made over the last couple of months and not got round to posting.
 
This first card was for a friend to give to her dad who is mad about steam trains. I have made cards with steam trains on for his birthday before and he was so pleased with them, he has framed them to keep on display.
 
The next two I made for my dad, one from me and the other from my children.
One of my dads passions are garden birds. He fills a lovely display of feeders, tables and bowls, three times a day with a full range of wild bird food and then enjoys sitting at his dining table to watch all sorts of birds and wildlife come into the garden to bathe in the bird bath and feed not only themselves but their young as well. A beautiful sight! Some of the birds are now so used to being fed, that they follow him around and into the garage where he keeps the food and are brave enough to come very close. 
 
This is off the children to Grandad, a very quick card, just three images matted and layered.

This is the one I gave him and he was made up with them both.
The images and papers came from a Joanna Sheen CD - JaneShasky- From the heart of the garden. I embossed and inked a strip of card with a floral spray border folder.

This image was printed onto a light card and decoupaged up.

 
I finished off with a matching tag and a double bow.
 
Thanks for looking, I'll be back soon to show you more.
Hugs Sue x
