Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Hi girls. Great to have you calling in on my blog. I hope you enjoy your visit. I appreciate you taking the time.
Well it was snow clearing duties for hubby again yesterday since we had another 3 inches overnight. When will this ever stop. Believe it or not the water has got under our very expensive concrete/resin driveway and as it has frozen it has expanded and lifted huge sections of it. You can actually get your hand underneath at one point. I just hope it doesn't crack and that when we finally get some warm weather it settles back again.
Anyway, enough moaning and on to today's card. I am entering this card into the Papertake Weekly challenge where the theme is "Anything goes". I made it for my nephew's birthday. I find it so difficult to do cards for men but I thought this image from Stampin Up fitted the bill nicely. Since it was for a man I didn't go for the optional lace. The paper is "Laundry Line" from My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is a Justrite wood stamp.
If you have a spare minute I would greatly appreciate it if you could leave a comment telling me what you think of it. I love getting your feedback and love to know who has been looking at my blog.
Have a great day and manage to stay safe and healthy.

  4. The frost and snow always does so much damage Fiona, hope it fixes itself again. Love your card, so different for you. Very masculine and gorgeous little setting with the stamps.

  5. HI Fiona, sending a big Aussie hug to you.Lovely to hear from you and hope you are feeling well and back to enjoying life much more. I to, find it hard to do male cards, it is like doing boy LO's.There is so many girlie things, but a lack of boy/man things, but I am certain your nephew will love this one.MME is one of the best paper companies favourite. Stay warm and I hope that your driveway fares well and doesn't crack ...xx

  6. I am so with you on the Man card front Fiona, I cringe when I have to make
    You had done a wonderful job here, fabulous crafting

    ps. The weather has been aweful hasn't it, our local roads are a right mess, pot holes everywhere due to the frost

  7. Perfect image for a man card hun. Love the colours too.
    No more snow for us, melting now. You should see the state of our pavements here in Fochabers!! Abismal, you'd have a job walking on them normally let alone with crutches! Just hope they get fixed come the spring. . .
    Have a great day,

  17. Big congrats on doing a man card-and brilliantly. Love those strips as a background.

  18. Beautiful card Fiona. Just a perfect male card. I think most of us struggle with them.

    Sorry to hear about your drive, hope the damage isn't too bad. Sounds like an unwanted expense.
