Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Nearly the end of July where has this month or even year gone so far!

I have a lovely relaxing day planned. I am starting a mixed media project today!

What are you doing today?

Don't forget to check out my word press blog to see my mixed media projects.

A male card to share with you for a change.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 square Kraft card.
2. I have matted and layered faux wood card which I have distressed with DI ground espresso.
3. The next layer is hessian from my stash.
4. The stamps background along with the images are from the Tim Holtz Destinations pack which have been matted and layered with foam pads.
5. To finish off I added the cogs and gears from Things to Alter.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafty Gals Corner #82 - Anything Goes
Creative Moments #98 - Always Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination #96 - Always Anything Goes
The Crafty Addicts #20 - Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create #186 - Anything Goes

What a fab card, love the texture with the hessian background, I'm sorry I seem to have missed so many of your lovely projects, I just don't get many notifications since Facebook changed it all, likewise I get very few comments on my blog lol!
