A very late post...

Good morning all and I must make apologies first! This post should have appeared yesterday but there was a bit of a problem - I started on Thursday with a wicked migraine which lasted all night and all through Friday and I was definitely not in a good position to spend time with a computer screen! So fingers crossed I don't get another like that again for a while. I seem to be getting them more frequently and they're longer lasting and if I'm honest it's probably an 'age' thing as I'm undergoing that interesting time of life lol! Sigh.

But another day - bright and freezing cold! - so here goes!
A new challenge has started over at CraftyCatz chosen this week by our lovely Aunty Sue - make a 'male' card. Now I know it's not everyone's favourite, but I don't mind really!

I've used an image from this week's sponsor 

I've coloured the image with promarkers and pencils. 
The stripy backing paper was a freebie with a mag, the coredinations panel was embossed with CraftsToo embossing folder and the dp is from stash.  I mounted the image on silver mirri board, and added bakers twine and a Sizzix die cut star.
So quite simple, but I hope you like it.
