Home Again

Good morning all hope you are enjoying your weekend wherever you are.  I got home yesterday from spending a week in London with my gorgeous little grandsons - totally exhausted but so worth it!!

Before I went I actually  managed to sort out my craft room so it was like coming home to a new craft room, I have never seen it so clean and tidy now the problem is to keep it that way!!  As I haven't been crafting for over a week I don't have a new card for today but I do have one I made a while ago and haven't posted before:

Yes a card for a man so not much in the way of embellishments, I think I tend to put either buttons or stars on my male cards!! These buttons are a Dienamics die and the twine is from my stash. I have no idea where the papers are from, possibly Papermania??  The stamp is an old one I have from Inkadinkado and they also made the one I used for the band across the card stamping it several times.  The sentiment is computer generated and I have used Spellbinders for the image and sentiment. The border has been made using Spellbinders Edgeabilities.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Allsorts - Masculine
Jellypark Friends - Button Up
Glitter n Sparkle - Male Card
Here Comes the Boys - Bingo (Buttons, twine, image)

Well I am going to have a jolly good play in my "new" craft room today!!  I am also going to catch up with you all today, I did take my I Pad with me so I have been able to do some visiting during the week.  Thanks for looking today, take care xx

Hi Susan, so glad you had a fab week with your grandsons, bet they enjoyed being spoiled rotten!!
Love your male card and those papers are fab, really like the colours.
How nice to come home to a calm and tidy craftroom. I started to tidy mine, got side tracked and the rest as they say is history.
Hugs Sue W.

Its a magic time as they seem to grow on the hour.
Love the male card, I find it so difficult to make mens cards but you have cracked it perfectly.

This is a great male card Susan, I think I'm the same as you with the embellishments - stars for the boys and buttons for the men.
I'm glad you had a great week, enjoy your nice tidy craft room.
