Hi Crafters,

Another beautiful day here in Norfolk, hope you are enjoying some of the sun too.
A quick post from me before I pop out on a few errands today.

This was a commissioned order and remember yesterday when I said there will always be a place for decoupage in my crafting, well this is one of those times. I have used a Crafty Creations die-cut sheet for this one, with a few stamps, dies and an embossing folder from my stash.

Crafty Creations Die-cut Decoupage Sheet - Ariel Square Four
Crafters Companion Gunmetal Embossing Folder
Xcuts Cogs Die
Craft Essentials Chain Die
LOTV Circle Sentiment Stamp

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Bunny Zoe's Challenge - Travelling/Transport
Fab 'n' Funky - #303 Three or more layers
Creative Inspirations - #350 Something for the Boys/Sporty

Thanks for visiting today, see you soon,

I think you are so lucky that hubby has such a fab variety of interests for you to choose from when making him cards! And lucky him to get such a wonderful bunch of beautiful personalised cards :-)
I think the pop up box is my fave though...I saw and admired Sylvie's card too and I love your version with all the rich woodgrain and explosion of tools :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
