Hello and welcome...

Margaret is hosting our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers, and the theme is
 'For a Special Man/Boy or Father's Day'

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it follows either of our masculine themes.
Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!
Click on the link above to see some inspiration from our fabulous DT ~ this is my contribution:
I made this for our 9 year old grandson to give to his dad for his birthday
  • I cut a piece of white card a little smaller than the 8" square base card
  • I embossed it with a Crafter's Companion 'Sunrays' Embossing Folder
  • I then used several Distress Inks by Ranger to add colour
  • This was then glued to a mat of black card and 4 brads by Hobby House were added to the corners, then adhered to the base card
  • The Woodware Sentiment was stamped onto white card with a StazOn Ink Pad in Jet Black
  • I cut and embossed it with a scalloped oval frame by Spellbinders, added mounting foam to it and attached to the card
  • To complete a personal verse was inserted
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, I hope my designs have given a little inspiration.
I read all your comments and really appreciate you leaving me a message.
