Toot The Flute


Firstly i would like to say a huge Congratulations to Jenson Button for wining yesterdays 5 hour Grand Prix, gee it's so nice to see somebody else wining for a change (sorry F1 is a passion of mine and Jenson is my 4 year olds favourite driver).  During the day we had been at Dunsfold Park (home of Top Gear), in the rain at a very worthy fun day raising money for Surrey / Sussex Air Ambulance and son absolutely loved sitting on a police motorbike, looking in the helicopter, and doing the STIG simulator ride of a Bugatti Veyron.

After yesterdays card that took me about 3 days to put together, i decided todays would be a lot less complicated !! I don't know about you, but i always run my Men's Cards pass my straight talking OH, whose a Yorkshire Man and there is no way he would let me make a man's card with flowers or bows on for him or his dad.

I haven't made a monochrome card in ages, but you've reminded me how great they look!

I was also so pleased to see JB win the race!! It felt like I'd watched all day but was very worth it! Nice to see Vettel make a rare mistake!

Very cool! Yes I agree I fint it very hard to make mens cards using lots of embellies, I think for men less is best. Thanks for joining us at Stamptacular this week hugs from Bron :D
