Simply the best...



I had a card to make for a girl for her Dad's birthday. He is a joiner by trade so she wanted something along those lines and this is what I came up with. 
Image - Mo's Digital pencil
Papers - DCWV
Embellishments - fabulous tape measure ribbon from CRAFTY RIBBONS,  K& Co letters.
Medium - coloured with promarkers and spectrums
I would like to enter this into
Top Tip Tuesday - one for the men
The Sisterhood - let's hear it for the boys
4 Crafty Chicks - stripes
The Poodles Parlour - use a digi stamp

I had a lovely day out yesterday with hubby. Think we got the best of the weather as its cold and miserable today. We went to Newry for a bit of shopping and lunch then headed out to Carlingford which is a little seaside village. We had a lovely walk then sat watching the world go by. Very relaxing and lovely to have so 
much sunshine:0
