Boys Toys and welcome Daisy

Good morning all! How are you? Did you get some sunshine yesterday? We did - it meant I had a lovely run - I'm hoping to go again today but the weather forecast isn't quite so good - fingers crossed they're wrong!!!

Todays card is one I made for the Joanna Sheen Forum Card Swap that I'm part of - the theme this month is Boys Toys. I took the opportunity to use a vintage train stamp from Crafty Individuals.


The backing paper is kraft card that I have run through an embossalicious embossing folder, the foreground paper is by coordinations/graphics 45 and I have sanded back to reveal the clocks. The image has been stamped in sepia archival and is from Crafty Individuals. Its a chunky tag stamp.


I'd like to enter this card fr the following challenges:

The male room:themaleroomchallengeblog Vintage
Fab n funkyfabnfunkychallenges - boys to men
Twisted tuesdaytwistedtuesdaychallenges - don't go near the edge and use script
incy wincy - monochromatic
PIOpileitonchallenge: for a guy
Crafty Catzcraftycatzweeklychallenge - Boys and their toys

I've got another quick card to share with you today - this one was made for one of the mums from school who had a new baby on Monday.


Its an LOTV image and I've debossed some card using sheenas daisy embossing folder.


The daisy ribbon I have had for a few years - it came off a market stall.

Hope you've enjoyed your visit today and thanks for dropping by. Big hugs to you and hope to see you again soon!
