Diesel Train

Happy Sunny Monday

I had a great day yesterday at Alexandra Palace having a mooch round and seeing what new goodies are available. I added to my dies, Promarkers, vintage images, TH goodies and general stash.

My card today has been made for the Spoonful of Sugar challenge - 'One for the Boys'.
I have used a cigarette card for the image, mounted it on brown and distressed and stickled the edges. I find it so hard to make men's cards, but I used papers both from the Papercraft World CD I used for the Sweet Pea card and from my scraps. I glittered the die cut photo clip and added die cut cog shapes to the border of plastic parcel tape. I used a MS border punch for the centre white layer and added a TH pin and made a sentiment embellishment for it. I stamped a clock face image and cut that out as an embellishment.

I hope all is well with you and yours this week.

Take care. LOL Bxxx
