A busy week here but we break for half term today - Yippee! (Did I sound a bit pleased there? lol!). And I am so ready for a break as it seems to have been a busy time, lots of things going on - not to mention a certain amount of stressing on my part! Youngest had his mock GCSE exams, daughter hasn't been too well, busy at work - yes, I'm definitely ready for a few days off. And I'm leaving the boys (i.e. husband & son) home alone next week for a few days when I head off to see our daughter in Sussex. It'll feel a bit odd travelling & staying somewhere on my own - I'm so used to being with offspring, husband or friend! I'll leave the males in the house with the usual list of instructions (most of which they'll probably ignore anyway). I might be better off leaving Grumpy Poppy the cat in charge.... We had a parents evening at school for youngest this week and it was the usual 2 hours of traipsing up and down corridors, into various classrooms, talking to teachers about a different boy - well, it seems to be a completely different one to the one that inhabits an upstairs
Anyway, as it's already Friday (where did the week go?) it is time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and our lovely Aunty Sue has set us the challenge this week of 'One for the boys'! So we'd like to see your crafty creations with the male of the species in mind. Our sponsor this week is Creative Classroom and they are offering the winner a free seat to an online workshop (valued at $25 or less).
I thought I'd share the card made for my husband who celebrated a birthday very recently!
I've used a digi stamp from Make It Crafty, coloured with Graphit pens
The backing papers are from LOTV as are the little sentiment tags, secured with brads. The hessian and tag are from stash with lettering done using AllOccasions dies.
Hope you like it.
And do have a look at the fabulous inspiration from the DT - and then join in the challenge at Crafty Catz with your 'One for the Boys'!
