What a Day lol,

Hi Peeps, do you know the sun is actually shining here yipee, oh I’d better not yell to loud it might get scared and disappear again lol, well what a morning i’ve had, I’m on hols for a week next week and so I wanted to shorten some cropped pants, yes cropped pants they were just not cropped enough, so I goes and gets my ancient sewing box and there was not a tape measure to be had so guess who has used a metal craft  ruler instead yep me!!! then all my pins had rusted .. not easy to get through fabric when their rusty I can tell you… so any way finally after a lot of coursing and my dog taking cover (only Joking) I did my pants, so guess who’s probably got one pant leg longer than the other lol,

Any way enough of my babbling, on to my card which is for my hubby’s Birthday which is when were away on hols next week so I’ve had to do it before I needed to pack and when he couldn’t walk into the craft room, of course I was trying to make this when I was thinking of doing my (crops) pants that is, and the housework, good job we can multitask he he,   I am entering my card into 9 challenges, gosh I should sew some more I’m usually looking all over for challenges that fit my cards lol,

Stampin for the weekend~ A card for a male,…Our Creative Corner~Masculine Birthday,…  One stop Craft Challenge~ Summer Breeze,…Stamp, Scrap & DoodleSaturdays~ Masculine, … Sketch Saturday~ This fab Sketch,…Dare U Digi Stamp~Anything goes,…Cards For Men~ Great Oudoors, Whoopsi Daisy Challenge~As you like it,The Crafty Calendar Challenge~Great Outdoors,

I know your thinking gosh where is this card but first I want to tell you I’ve used another fantastic image from Di’s Digi’s called Gone Fishing I love her images and I am so lucky to be on her DT, and it is perfect for Jim as he’s fishing mad and won a match last week, beating our son who was on a better peg, lol needless to say there was a lot of joking  going on he he,


Papers~Papermania~ Hampstead Collection, Copics, Nesties, Magic Mesh, Button Elements~ had for years, Textured Card,

Actually he’s probably seen these buttons before I have been known to recycle them lol, well he throws his fish back in and catches them another time !!!!!!

I don’t know if I will be back on this week as I will need to pack etc and try to make the house look ok before we go, however our son is still here so it will look like a bomb site any way lol,


I’ve used a new surround on this image what do you think?

It’s also my Pearl Wedding next week, just think 30 years of fishing lol, hope your all ok and having a good day, wish us luck for the weather as we are on hols in Britain,(enough said) lol, might see you soon or after next week if not, hugs Liz xx

Oh Liz this is fantastic, such a hard type of card for me, Mens cards are not my strong point, so fair play and well done you....The papers look brill and I just love that little fella...
Might just have to steal this idea for my fisherman hubby, I have those embelys and have to confess recycling them too in the past...
If we don't speak before you go away, have a wonderful time

ps I have candy, come see if you get the time

Lori said...

LOL (Cheryl) wonky legs!!! How did your pants turn out? Just wear one shoe with a high heel and you'll look great : ) ha ha ha ha

LOVE this card, Liz!!! Lots of great embellies on it too. Makes me wish that my hubby would fish lol!

I'm hoping to get in one of Di's images in this week... we'll see how things go.

How long will you be away? You're bringing your computer with you, right? Maybe some crafting supplies... how else will be stay in touch?

Lots of love and FUN to you!!!


Mandy said...

Thanks for that hun...
It's going to be hard parting with them but it will give me a bit of pocket money for some more stash, so bitter sweet eh...
Thank you my lovely friend

ps don't worry about the link, I had a game just trying to add the ebay thingy, but I thought if I could spread the word a bit it might make me a few more pennies and I could give something back for all the help in the mean time adding a candy
