Life is a Journey

Good afternoon crafty friends and followers

Well it is snowing here today and I believe quite a few of you have snow too.  Today hubby and I celebrate our 14th Wedding Anniversary.  I can't believe how the years are marching on.  We have a quite day planned today but we are off out to see Les Miserable tomorrow followed by a meal.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and if you are off out take it easy and keep safe.

Today's card is a male card.  I haven't done one of these for ages and as I have quite a few males in the family I thought it was time to start making some.  April, May and June is a hectic month for male birthdays so I need to make a start.


Base card is A5 gold pearlescent card.
The textured brown card is from my stash which I have had for years I have distressed the edges with my scissors.
The stamp on the second layer is from JustRiteVintage Map Collage Background.  I have used WOW Burgundy Red.  I then distressed the edges with scissors and distressed the image with PanPastel Burnt Sienna.
The car is from Visible Image which I have stamped with Memento Black and coloured the metal bits with silver pen.
To finish off I have added a steering wheel with a brad, the journey charm was once silver but I coloured with ink to make it brown and then added a sentiment.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

  9. I love the effects you've used to create this card, just roughening the edge of the brown card as it helps it stand out. And the colours you've chosen to stamp with work so well. Great card for a man.
