A card for a chap!

Over at Winter Wonderland this week the lovely Lynsey has challenged us to make a Christmas card for a male - well most of the chaps I know are very Bah Humbug over Christmas so I have gone for a clean and simple look. I cannot take all credit for this card as one of the ladies - Judith - who comes to my club sessions made one similar for her cards last year - Judith definately hides her light under a bushal as she has been winning trophys at country shows all year with her wonderous creations - so I have scraplifted her idea!
The stamp is by paperartsy and I have paper pieced it using some bits from the left over box - by basic grey. The sentiment is by papermania and the faux stitching detail was my daughters suggestion so hey this card was practically made by everyone else I just added the glue LOL. Digi doodle shop are our sponsors this week offering a $10 prize to the randomly picked winner - Brilliant stuff!
Check out my team mates over at Winter Wonderland - these chaps are in for such a treat this Christmas we will drive the Bah Humbugs away :0)
Have a great Friday x Janet
