Butterfly Male Easter Duo

These are the last 2 cards for my DH office staff...yeah! After a while Easter cards become a bit boring. I have no repeats except for these last 2 that are similar. I wanted 2 male cards that were very manly so no pastels or bunnies. I used Kiwi Kiss and a dark blue as my colors. Instead of pink I used an orange tone. So lots of photos to follow. I used my Prismacolored Markers to color and versfine onyx black ink.

The first card is tall 9 inches by 4 inches and fits into a business card. I cased a card from Michelle Zindorff for this one. I changed the stamps but the style is all hers.

The butterflies are from a kit I got at Kent`s Home Depot and has no markings so I don't know who made it. The sentiment holder is from SU Hodgepodge kit. BG stamp is from SU Stitched Exotics.
Love the screw brads $ store and butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.
The second card is my normal card size 5 inches by 7inches.BG stamp is from Broque Motifs SU. Brads from $store and sentiment is on small and large oval punches from SU. The sentiment on the inside is done with the Harmony Stamper from JustRite.

Martha Stewart punch was used on the top. I love the way this punch embosses along the edge.

I have been absent a lot this week dealing with the sick of the male species. One has the mumps and my DH is following all the steps to this but no swelling yet. I hate to complain but men are absolutely the worst sick people. They take it all to a new level. Mine both wont to do it without medicine because that would mean they were weak....instead they like to sigh their way through an illness. If you hear screams world wide they sighed one too many times. I am thinking of hiding the medicine in a bowl of soup which seems to be the main meal this week.

OK I now feel better. Thanks for listening....even if you jumped over this last section...I do feel better.

Great cards and love the strong colours you have used. Haven't quite got into Easter cards yet but hey, have several more weeks left ! !

Have to say can so agree with you about the males species v illness - my step mum has always called the diseases they get as "male-itious" !

Have a great weekend.
