Boys Will Be Boys

Hi Folks
Sorry I haven't been around for the last few days but been busy, busy, busy.  It was our 27th wedding anniversary on Friday.  We had a lovely chinese takeaway on Friday evening with the girls and hubby surprised me with a crafty present.  He bought me an EBosser.  He had heard me saying that I wanted to save up for one so he went and bought one for me.  I just love it and it will certainly be getting lots of use.

Then at the weekend we went to stay with my sister and her hubby.  Our daughters came with us and my mum so we had a nice family weekend.  It was so nice seeing my nephews and spending some time with family.  The next time we shall all get together is Christmas.

So no time for blogging let alone crafting over the last few days.  Will be spending a few evenings in my crafty room this week as got some orders to get done.

Anyway, my card share tonight is a card that I did for one of my nephews birthday. 

The topper is from the Hobby House and was just perfect for this card.  I used black card as the contrast and the papers were from my stash of freebie papers that I have acquired from magazines.  I added some red and black ribbon across the card.  The sentiment is a peel off.  Some card candi finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
