I know lots of people went back to work today here after the Christmas holidays, my daughter included but us retirees need a calendar to keep up with the days of the week. Over the last week, my husband has been convinced it was a Friday on a Wednesday and a Monday when it was Saturday! I agreed that I was floundering as my normal benchmarks of DT obligations were on holiday too!
Anyway we are back to normal more or less apart from the large tree in the lounge which will come down either later today or tomorrow as it will take a good while to remove all the decorations it took an afternoon to put on!
Over in blogland its time for a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz.
This week we have chosen the theme of -
UP, UP and AWAY
Lots to get your teeth into there, balloons, kites, planes and anything else you can come up with.
I went with a rocket for my card.
A friend of mine has gone into hospital today for a hernia op so I sent this to cheer him on to a speedy recovery. Not a great way to start the new year but necessary! I hope it has got there but what with all the holidays, post is somewhat delayed, so sorry if it doesn't get to you before this post.
I liked the idea of the sentiment from this Space themed set from Paper Smooches and instead of the stamped exhaust, I added a vellum one over my galaxy background. This is the first time that the set has been inked up since I bought it and I can see me using it quite often in the future.
After making the panel I realised that it was smaller than the base card bit rather than cut it down I added a strip of linen effect gold card, I rather like the overall effect.
OK, that's about it from me for today.
Why not have a try, challenge yourself to make a masculine card, we'd love to see what ideas you have. If you need more inspiration check out the rest of the team here.
