Here's to a Top Chap

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and thanks for popping by.  Well, I have had a lovely time in Marbella for my daughter's hen weekend.  We arrived on Friday and got home on Monday lunchtime.  Managed to spend some time soaking up the sun around the pool and on the beach.  There was also a little bit of drinking involved.  It still amazes me how much stamina the youngsters have.  I have added a few photos to the end of my post.  Now we just have the wedding to look forward to in a couple of weeks. 

Today I thought I would share with you a male card using a shirt topper set from Papermania.

I love these shirt decoupage sets and they are just great for male cards.  I used black card for the matting and the sentiment was also from the topper set.  The papers were also from the set and I added some buttons to some black ribbon which I added under the sentiment.

As promised here are a couple of photos from the weekend.

 My two beautiful daughters.

 Me and the bride to be Heather.

A group shot of us all on Saturday night.

Thanks again for popping by.  I do appreciate all your visits and the lovely comments that you leave.
