Breezy Sunday

Ok its not a man's card but I was checking out the challenges and Penny Black Saturday's was to use a sentiment stamp and not an image and I had just the stamp. I brought this sentiment as soon as I read it for some reason it touched home. Once stamped it was a case of finding some paper, I finally used BG Offbeat, which needed no other decoration than a few flowers and a butterfly made with white card and another sheet of Offbeat. I really pleased with how it turned out but its not suitable for my BIL.
While rummaging through my christmas papers I found a scrap of the Snowmen from BG, I think its Fruitcake, when I saw the snowmen it reminded me of Tamara sketch #69 so I chopped it into three stitched round it to bring it all together and Noel was cut with the Storybook cricut cartridge using the another sheet of BG. This card won't work for my BIL either.

Along with every little thing that seems to be developing inside this particular subject material, your points of view happen to be quite refreshing. Nonetheless, I beg your pardon, but I do not subscribe to your entire suggestion, all be it exciting none the less. It seems to me that your comments are generally not completely validated and in fact you are yourself not really totally confident of the point. In any case I did appreciate reading it.
