Good morning

I hope I find you well today, the sun is shining at the moment, lets hope it will last. 
I spent yesterday looking like the Michelin woman. On Sunday I was given some raspberries so I made them in to jam. Yesterday, I went shopping at Asda and bought a small 'tiger loaf' (my fave bread) of course I came home and made a start on it, ............. there is NOTHING like fresh bread, butter and home-made jam............ needless to say I eat most of the loaf during the day, I wore a grove in the kitchen floor going back for 'just one more slice' lol........I finished it off for supper with home-made carrot and lentil soup. I think I had better not eat today!!

Here is the card I made for my grandson's birthday, it's on it's way to OZ now, hopefully getting there in time because I was late making it!

Dovecraft 'Birthday' papers
Image is Penny Black...balloon teddy
coloured with promarkers
Cut with labels 23
String, sentiment, button brad and 3D gloss from stash

I am entering the following challenges;

Cards for Men -------------add metal (button brad and charm on string)

Graph it---------- Denim and jeans

Crafty Sentiments------------------- Animals

Oldie but a goodie-------------- male card (Old.... brad, charm, papers)

I am off to do my most favourite job of all now............. cleaning the cooker, yes, I did turn my back and the jam boiled over and the oil splattered from my egg on Sunday mornings bacon and egg barm hehehehe
Have a lovely day and thank you for your visit.

Hugs Tilly x

Hi Tilly

Lovely card, love the image and beautiful colourful card

I like your style I love tiger loafs too, you would have had to buy two loafs or at least a bigger one and there would be two groves in your floor.
I hope you oven is looking shiny that's the one job I hate.
