One for the men is another one of the cards I have just made while trying out those dies, not that I have used many on this one.  Infact I only used one of the set of scalloped edged dies that I got for Christmas from Charlie.  I had the packet of  Wellington card and a packet of toppers and decided to try a mans card keeping it simple.  Tammy has claimed it for a friend of theirs who has a birthday in a few weeks. I am going to have to go through all my card/ paper stash to see what will nice on a card and what is more suited for scrapbooking- I have loads but a lot are from years ago and now there are even nicer ones out there,

This is a 4x6 card first layer is paper from Forever Friends 12x12 pkt, next is Wellington, along with two toppers from a sheet of die cuts of Wellington bear, very simple and very quick to make.  By the way keep meaning to say I have finished my scrapbook picture for the nursery, they have seen photos of it and love it. I have the job of wrapping it ready to hand over , due to another member of staff being off ill the one that's leaving has been asked to stay till the end of January so it's not needed till then, but it's all ready to go and was easier than I thought. 
Thank you once again for all you kind comments, I never thought a year ago I would have a blog let alone been showing cards.   Well I'd better get going and do some housework, needs must it won't do its self.  Take care and hope your weather is a bit brighter than ours, damp and miserable here.

  17. Great plaids on this guy card, & liked the scallop clock rectangle over the plaid. You have a good eye for combining patterns. Very pretty together. Loved the cute little teddy hiding over in the corner. Great card, and it's good to use up the VOS (very old stash). TFS & Hugs
