One for the Boys

Hi Folks
Had a busy morning at work and caught up with some jobs at home this afternoon.  Just having a blog catch up now before settling down to watch a film on TV.  Not sure what we are going to watch but nice to have a relaxing evening.  

Todays card share is one I made a while ago using a Woodware large sentiment stamp.


The sentiment stamp was stamped and embossed onto some cardstock.  I went around the edge with some faux stitching before matting onto brown and black card.  The backing paper is some I have had in my stash for a couple of years.  For embellishments I just added some card candi to two of the corners.  A simple but effective male card.  

Here is another one done in a different colour way.


Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I do appreciate all your comments and enjoy reading them.  Your support means a lot.  Please accept my apologies if I don't get around to commenting as much as I would like.  Returning to work full time has certainly been a challenge.
