Enjoy the Ride!

Well, another week  has just whizzed by - helping DH (my new job as 'Gofer' on the Summer House - almost got the sack for interfering last week - I wish!)  - but its looking good and almost finished,   and in my spare time I've managed to do a bit of housework.! Oh and I  gave myself a day off and met up with friends for coffee- but very little crafting I'm afraid. I am hoping to be redundant this week-end and then normal service can be resumed - unlike Mr Blogger who has lost my followers again!!

I did manage to make a card last night while DH was at work, at least that's what he call the Youth Club!
Its for the Less is More challenge, which this week is 'Things that Move'.  This is the second card, not too sure if the first is LIM - will think about it.  This was one of the first stamps I  bought, (my Son still loves his mountain bike(s) yes, he has more than one and both very expensive!) and I used this stamp for the first birthday card I made him, and the last! I can't remember who made it. I have just stamped the image, matted with black and added brads, did some soft chalking and that's its, very LIM!! The sentiment was made on the computer.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
  Cards for Men - Anything Goes
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Thats it for tonight, thanks for looking and if you find my followers, please send them back to me

Hi Avril - love this image - a great "male" card. My 17 year old Grandson would love it too - he's a biking fanatic!
I can see your followers' pictures by the way - hope you can see them too. I thought Blogger was behaving himself after the shambles of a few weeks ago, but apparently not!!
Hugs, Sylvia xxx

I have been trying to post on here for a couple of hours now, hope this time it works!! Great card Avril, that stamp looks terrific, more like a photo than a stamp, mens cards are usually difficult but you have nailed it with this one
Love Jenni xx
