For the Men in Our Lives!

A fortnight has just whizzed by since my last post and so much has happened with my card breaking down and no mobile phone, a fabulous long weekend away with friends and just all the comings and goings of life in general. Next week is happing up to nee the same with a visit to our local RHS garden with friends and lunch and then off to London to meet a lady over from Canada who I hope to meet again in two/three months time actually in Canada.

For the Men in our Lives is the theme for the challenge over on the International Art and Soul Challenge blog (intaas)

It was my grandsons birthday last week and he has celebrated being 19 years old. We are proud as such as he is studying Criminology in a uni in Canada.  This was the card I made for him. The timing was perfect, the challenge and his birthday.


I've used three shades of brown card and cut them with Sue Wilson's Pierced Squares, A & B to give me narrow layers and I embossed the top one with a chevron embossing folder.  The image was a freebie from the company called Design bundles, check them out weekly on the internet.  The ribbon I bought from the Creative Expressions stand at the recent Ally Pally show, lots of different colours for 50p for a couple of metres, bargain!  The dies I've used for the sailing ship I bought from a lady on Facebook, no idea where they came from originally.

If you drop in, please let me know and Ill return the favour,  have a great week!
