Forever in blue jeans

It has been a more than usually hectic few weeks and I had planned to catch up on my crafting at the weekend.  However I ended up doing very little other than the usual taxi-ing around of offspring, dog walking, grass cutting, chicken cleaning out etc. etc.  I'm now enjoying catching up on some crafting and on some of my favourite challenges. 
Today's card is a masculine card that would be suitable for Father's Day, that uses the new House Mouse CD from Joanna Sheen.  The image is decoupaged and I've added extra clothes pegs across the card.  In real life, the ribbon is a perfect match for the orange card that I've used to mat and layer.  Matted onto orange and kraft. Some stitching and a scattering of stars finishes off the card.
I'm entering my card for:
Simon Says - masculine/Father's Day
House Mouse & Friends - Father's Day/ male
Charisma Cardz - tons of layers
Papertake Weekly - hello boys
Really Reasonable Ribbon - masculine with ribbon
Crafters Cafe - Fathers or for a male
Crafty Cardmakers - Father's Day
Creative Creations - for you Dad/masculine


  1. A cute card, love how you have added some pegs. Hugs x ChrisB

  2. Love the denim look of the blue layer Anne, as it matches the image so well. The randomness of the stitching is great, and a lovely zingy colour.

    Thanks for joining us with your lovely masculine/Father's Day card
