Last one...

Hello Everyone!

Thank you all so much for your fabulous comments on my 'Male' cards.
This is the last one that I finished last weekend....another big card, as the clients eyes are not too good and his wife thought a big card would help....[no pressure!!]

he is finally starting his retirement...80 yrs.old.
I can't really go into too much detail, but he once said 'the day I stop working will be the day I die'
[gulp] too scared to hand the card over...[more pressure]

He wont die....I think it was a figure of speech, as he said today, He cant wait to get stuck into the garden...I already new he was looking forward to that...hence the man gardening.
Found the image on the net, was a colouring page I think, and made this.

Coloured with pencils, added some gold mesh and Autumn skeleton leaves. Papers from the same package as yesterdays, and I think that was a huge thick pad from the Warehouse, ages ago, and they are quite vintage, patchy,roughed up looking, but very nice.
Made this photo bigger, now I can see all the crooked

So there you go. Another man card, all done...

Hope you are having a great day....good sleep.....or crafting your heart out.
Catch up soon,

Fantastic card, Chrissy! You do male cards so brilliantly! I'm rubbish at them - fine with boy ones, rubbish with grown up ones!!
