TIME FOR THE MALE SIDE



Hello Everyone...

Tuesday evening and just finished the tea rounds in homes that are heated beyond belief and the day was rather mild..but they are old and feel the cold, especially as it gets dark so early these days with winter and all...

So what  a better way to finish my day by jumping on here and saying "Hi! " and sharing a male card...I do love doing male cards, especially when you can get so many photos off the net and play with them...

so how about a ship...most men like boats...ships.


Found this image and had a real fun time adding bits of torn paper and corrugated card along the bottom...and in my stash were these metal label things so added the stamped sentiment inside..



I have quite a few of these metal label holders and they work well for men...



The Anchor I was very happy with as I embossed it several times and made it nice and thick..tied on a piece of thick string, made a knot..and done.

The netting is from a florist bouquet, and a client gave me this netting..
