Bygone Times

Morning All from a wet and cold Warrington.  I have had quite a busy morning so far and I am hoping to catch up with what I didn't get done yesterday.

I hope you are just about ready for Santa to pay us all a visit tomorrow night.  I love Christmas Eve and treated us to some Bucks Fizz to celebrate on the Christmas day whilst we are opening our presents.

I would like to wish all my blogland friends a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy, Prosperous and Crafty 2012.

For a change I have decided to make a man's card and this would do for any of my male relatives, haven't decided yet whom it will go to.  The card is A4 folded landscape and this fitted perfectly with the images and papers I wanted to use.  Everything on the card is from Hunkydory Bygone Times luxury kit.  I have added peel offs to the corners, the key I have embossed twice with Cosmic Shimmer Thick embossing crystals and then distressed using Pan Pastel in Burnt Sienna.  I have distressed the edges around the sentiment which reads "I'd travel around the world and back for you".  I am sure my Dad would love this as he is a massive car fanatic.

Thank you for stopping by today
