Home Improvement

Hi Folks
Well, I am finally back from my enforced absence due to internet issues.  I felt so lost without it all week and I am now trying to play catch up.
Therefore I am extremely late posting the new challenge over at Dude Time Doodles which started on Wednesday.  I am sure my teamies will forgive me though.
The challenge theme is HOME IMPROVEMENT and the winner will receive 3 free images from the Dude Time Doodles store.

I used a super image Ernie Carpenter for my project.


I think that this card will probably end up going to my hubby for his birthday in December.  I can clearly recall that as little girls our daughters favourite saying (when anything broke or went wrong) was Dad will fix it.  He is a bit of a DIYer and will have a go at fixing anything.  I do put my foot down though at electrics or water problems.  Don't really want to be flooded out or the house burned down lol.
You still have a couple of days to enter the challenge so get creating.  You can upload any project as long as it is aimed for a male and fits the challenge theme.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - For a man/youth
Papertake - Anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - Happy Birthday
Digital Tuesday - Text me
Inky Impressions - Lets hear it for the boys
Crafts and Me - My sentiments exactly
Catch the Bug - Anything goes
Craftymess - Anything goes
DCC & Friends - Character crazy
Sentimental Sundays - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by.

It's always good to remind men of their limitations on occasion:)
This is one of my fav images from Dudetime and you've done an awesome job of showing him off.

Hi Mags,
What a fab card. I was looking through your past few days and had to stop at this as it reminded me so much of my dad. He could turn his hand to anything DIY, was a master carpenter/joiner and a fully qualified mechanic. I miss him constantly but there are many a time now when I need something done and my first thought is 'oh dad I wish you were still here'.
Anyway, your card is fabulous and I adore the embelllishments you have used.
Hugs Linda x
