Masculine Cards - Fishing!

Here are some masculine blank cards that I made. 

First one:
On the Fly by Stampin' Up 
Craft Cardstock for the card base,
Aqua Blue Cardstock 4" x 5 1/4",
Craft Cardstock 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" -- then I used my crimper, which made that wavy look,
White Cardstock w/fisherman stamped on it 2 3/4" x 3", then I sponged basic brown on it. 

And the second one:

Dark blue Cardstock for card base,
Craft Cardstock 1 1/2" x 5 1/4" -- then I distressed it with my big shot. 
Green Cardstock 3 1/4" x 3"
White Cardstock was cut to fit in green after fisherman was stamped. 
Chocolate Brown Cardstock corner on white piece and 3 self stick pearls attached to craft Cardstock.

Painting Continues.....!

After staring at these walls for almost 5yrs knowing that the painters the builder used did not apply the right amount of coats. The colour that already did not match the colour we had picked has now faded into a peachy Taupe colour.  So, the painting has begun, or should I say 'has continued'. I love the results. 

Edit: Paint used was 'Coconut Leaves' by Para Paint.

Electric Fireplace It Is!

Yes, I've decided on an electric fireplace. It's portable and can be moved into another room later on if I ever wish to do so. 

And the winner is....'drum roll'
