A Man Card & Yet Another Blog Award

Hi girls, I am so pleased to have you visit my wee corner of Blogland. It's so warm here these last few days without any great spells of sunshine. I hope you are all enjoying good weather as well. Hopefully you will find something you like while you browse my blog.
I have made another card today that I will not be entering into any challenges. It's a slight departure from my usual girlie stuff as I thought I would have a go at a card for a man. I'll leave you to judge if it's a success or not.
I used a Hero Arts' Cling called "Bird in a Circle" and stamped it in gold with pink, green and brown highlights. I have mounted everything on gold card and the paper is Classic K Bailey Brown Paisley Flat Paper. The ribbon is from my stash.If you like this card I would love you to leave a comment. I love reading them. They are so encouraging. I always appreciate you taking the extra time to leave me a note.

My Third Award in 3 Days

I have been given this award by Angela over at Sparkly Cards. Angela is a Stampin Up Agent and makes some marvellous creations with their materials. Well worth a look.

The conditions of this award are that I'm to give you 7 statements about myself and either 6 will be true and 1 false or 6 false and 1 true. It's up to you to guess which and sort out what might be true. I would love to hear which of these you think is true.
1. I am 6 feet tall.
2. I hate chocolate.
3. I don't go into craft shops.
4. My husband once had breakfast with a man who walked on the moon.
5. My husband played rugby for Scotland.
6. I am running a marathon later this year.
7. My favourite colour is brown.

I also have to pass this on to 7 people so I have chosen to pass it on to Vee at Veronica's Designs, Tracy at Country Mouse, Lisa at Mess2Magic, Judi at Judi's Craft Corner, Mina at Pinkpuds, Kim at Kim's Card Corner, Emma at Mrs Giraffe's Bloggy.

Well that is it for today. have a great day, stay safe and enjoy your crafting.

Luv to you bothe Carol xx
