It's a man thing...

Good afternoon my blogging buddies and hope this finds you warm and safe. Rain and gales here...again although we did have a ten minute window first thing when I was able to walk Suzy, very quickly, after dealing with the pony, who is on the road to recovery thank goodness.  

Anyway enough of the waffling and on with the card. I have made a card today for my youngest to give his friend who turns 20  in a couple of days (they are out on the town tonight...again!!) .

I used my lovely, lovely  newTonic layering dies for the circular card to start with. Used spotted and striped papers from a Wellington stack and coloured the perfectly appropriate image with Promarkers. 
A LOTV sentiment and some complimentary buttons and some twine and the job's a good 'un.

I am off to play here...

Glad the pony is feeling a bit better, not good when they get an abscess. Your card is just right for a young man of 20. Take care Hazel x

Same weather here yet again Sarah, hubby's turn to much out this morning and both the boys broke their lead rope to head off to the waterlogged paddocks, not a happy bunny when he came in.

A great masculine card here, thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts challenge this week.
