Hi friends!
Here it is that elusive male card that I had to do for my son. I have to say that I had a bit if a light bulb moment in the end taking inspiration from this card here by Liz...thank you Liz! I would never have got there without your design idea.

The sentiment - I couldn't resist buying when I saw it, it is so true don't you think? Out came the IndigoBlu wine bottle and I masked off the words on that, and the background stamp was in my stash...un-inked, so that has made it's debut.A bit of matting and layering and pricking....sounds so quick but boy what with all the thinking time took forever. Anyway I am pleased with the result and so was my son!

Hope the Bank Holiday went well for you all....not long until the next one!........I am a day behind again this week...they sure throw you out of sync.

For those of you that read in an earlier post about my sorting of the craft room....well yippee it's done!....and now of course I can't find anything as some things have moved place! I have re-acquainted myself with a lot of stuff, frightened myself silly really the amount in there, and I have parted company with a few bits...just a few...well they might come in !

Looking forward to Saturday and the LOTV 10th Birthday Party and hopefully meeting up with some blogging buddies! and no doubt parting with a bit more cash for lovely things that will then need a home! know that tidy sorted craft room........!!

Thanks for stopping by and an extra thanks to those who are kind enough to leave me a comment and make my day!
Take care friends
