Prank Call


It's all go in this house - last weekend we had to get up at 5am to take H to RSPB Explorers for 'Dawn Chorus', to say we were all a bit spaced, then on Sunday H did a scavenger hunt with Cubs, he is sailing today and tomorrow is the Rugby end of season trophy / certificate presentation. Plus the big news from this house is Alan has resigned from his job and starts his new one on 7th June - i'm not posting this card on my Facebook page till then, as i've hidden it from him.

Today's image is : Penny Black - 'Prank Call /1682K /2000', cut with : Spellbinders - 'Labels 8', the papers are : LOTV - 'Country Gent', the bottom section has been cut using : Spellbinders - 'A2 Curved Borders One', the edging going down is : Stampin' Up punch - 'Scalloped Edge', the sentiment is : LOTV - 'Set 7 Circular Sentiments - For You', mobile phone charm is from my stash, the image and sentiment has been distressed with : Tim Holtz - 'Tea Dye and Old Paper'.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Moving Along With The Times - where Challenge No: 20 is 'Man or Boy' - i've chosen is Man

Stamps And Fun = Creativity  - where Challenge No: 278 is 'Male Project'

As You Like It - where the Challenge is ; 'Favourite - Designer Paper or Embossed' - mine is always Designer Papers, as i love patterns and colours
