I had a wonderful massage last night and i'm feeling great - my thick support is working wonders, to help tighten everything up.

Today's card is using a stamp that i thought would make great boys cards,  but have not stamped up yet, first time out for the  papers and sentiment too, the corners have been made using my MS - basic photo corner, that i really don't use often enough and the twine was from a Ben Sherman tag, that was attached to my son's jacket from T K Maxx.

Here Comes The Boys - where Challenge No: 18 is a fabby 'Sketch'

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Birthday Wishes'
