One for the Boys.

This is unusual for me! Two posts on a Saturday. I made this card on Wednesday but this is the first chance I've had to post it. Wednesday was the first of our meetings at the WRI for this session. I was really late home because we were discussing what items we'd like for our mini show next March. We usually have bulbs, handcrafts, baking and produce. To crown it all we had to discuss the co-operative entry for another show involving the 9 WRIs in our area. Plus I've been trying to catch up with DT cards and commenting and visiting my favourite blogs. Not sure that I've been very successful with my visiting though lol!

This is just a simple card I made with my friend. She's been asked by the rest of the staff in the chemist's where she works to make a card for one of the local doctors who's retiring soon. I thought this image and sentiment would be suitable. What do you think?

I used :-
Image and sentiment :- LOTV.
DP :- Wild Rose Studio.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Card Candy :- Craftwork Cards.
I've kept it fairly simple. I think men prefer simple lol! And I'm going to enter the following challenges :-
Lili of the Valley :- One for the boys.
Cards for Men :- Long Summer Days.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

Thanks for any kind comments you might have time to leave.
