Great Auntie Clair....

How exciting....... my lovely nephew has become the proud father to baby Harry tonight, weighing 8lb 1oz and both mummy and baby are doing great.

Can't believe I am a great sounds so old, but it's fab news and I'm really pleased for them.

On a darker note, I got told off today........for not keeping my blog more up to date so apologies and I will try really hard to keep on top of things (I have been really busy lately....I'm not slacking...honest!)

So, I have made a male card.......shock horror.....
I was playing about with a new set called Need for Speed and this is what I came up with....

Do you think the backing paper looks a bit like planks of wood?  I saw an effect at training with Amanda a few weeks ago so though I would have a go.  Its just cardstock scored at 1/2 inch intervals and then I rubbed inkpads across....not sure if it does look like wood but I like the effect anyway.

 I stamped the quadbike with chocolate chip ink and then crumpled up the paper.  Using the distress kit from the catalogue I inked over the image and scuffed both the bike topper and the blue matt and layer with the edge of the scissors.

I thought the inside needed a bit of decoration....

Well, thats it from me tonight, I'm off to start a new baby card......
Thanks for stopping by,
Take care xxx
