masculine cards

It is always quite challenging to make masculine cards, especially when we have so many pretty stamps and embellishments that we love to use.

However, the men in our lives have birthdays and other occasions that call for a card so here are some pics of masculine cards I have made recently.

MDS Christmas cards

Yikes! a week before Christmas and I still needed to make quite a few Christmas cards. What to do?
never fear MDS was there:)

I needed something super quick or they would never be received by Christmas so I opened up my MDS programme (My Digital Studio) and looked for a Christmas card template. I quickly found one I liked , printed off 4 to a page, mounted them on card stock, added a little bling and voila!

If you would like to have a go at making cards or scrapbooking pages using MDS, click on the "shop now" button on my home page and scroll down the list on the left hand side till you get to My Digital Studio and click. you now have the option to download the FREE trial version or the full software download for only $27.95 AND the is no postage and packaging on that because it downloads direct to your computer. How reasonable is that? The programme comes with a heap of free pre-installed stuff so you can use it straight away and Stampin' Up! release new optional downloads (at a very small cost) weekly.

Be aware, however, that it is a very large programme and can take some time to install. I found it best to disable my screensaver and virus proection just for the time it took to install. (The instalation process is constantly accessing the internet and can be interupted by the screensaver coming into play.)
