Fly the flags


Mr Blogger has been good and schedule all my post these last couple of weeks but refuses to show me the blogs I follow again, hope he sorts it out soon. But he has to schedule this post too, cos I'm going to Nikki's Stampin Up workshop and Hubby can only get me to Sis early morning and you know I'm not going to attempt to write this post on my Sis's slowest PC in Hampshire.
So this is my card for Fly the Flags challenge on Penny Black Saturday challenge, you may recall seeing this layout on a clean and simple card and I think it works fine with my little mousey chap image. I've used my square punch for the banners ends and a Martha Stewart border punch although this was more of an experiment.
I can't for the life of me remember the papers since I made this card several days before we left for our hols.
I kinda like the twine and button and the whole card looks more for a man than a woman so that another mans card in the box.
Do pop over and check the team some fabulous PB stamps to be won this week.
I had a fabulous week in Spain, didn't see any rain for a whole week but its more than made up for that today.
I do have some advice whilst putting suntan lotion on your face, when put it on the side of  your face then the other remember to put some on your nose, otherwise you have a red line down the centre of your nose all week!!!!!

Definitely a man's card - despite the cute mouse image - still - he is in a boat. Def a man thing! Love those banners and the papers.
Glad you had a good holiday. Back to reality now - whatever that is.
