So all my fella blogging crafter's out there, fancy some candy?
Debbi, a fella SN addict is celebrating her birthday with a generous stash giveaway.  Wow.  Very yummy indeed.
Debbi hope you have a fantastic birthday.  :)

Now I have been making a few cards of late for folk in the village but I always forget to get out my camera before handing them over.  Mind you the cards are not like those for DT challenges. 
I find less is more when making for none crafter's, do you find that too?
Having said that I do like a minimal card too...something very classy about it, if you get it just right, plus they don't take as long to make!  (Well usually!)

Anyway these two cards are for a recent addition....simple but to the point!

The first is a tall thin card and the second my favourite shape just now, square...."It's hip to be square!"
Do you have a favourite shape?
I have just used pink gingham paper and kept it simple.  The die cuts are from my cricut machine and Nellie Snellen.
The pram was made using my scalloped circle nestie.
Oh and after checking out some of my Sugar Sister's blogs I decided to be very brave and go and play in photoshop. 
 I have a love/hate relationship with photoshop....I love to hate it, pure and simply because I don't really have a Scooby doo!
Still got there in the end.  Is it me, or is it not the most user friendly of programs?
Yes, you can get fantastic results with it and do wonderful things, but you do really need to know what you are doing....and I envy folk that do.
