Perfect Lazy Afternoon........

Hello everyone how are you all? Well decorating still not done, I have glossed my doors in the passage way though & there is 11..........yep 11 doors...... I kept spilling paint & didnt know why...........there was a little hole in the corner of the tray lol.............good job I have wooden floors lol, (I cant have carpets cus of the wheelchair).

Anyways, guess what........a few days ago I sat & made a couple of male cards.........yes 'Male Cards' check me out lol. So I thought I would show you my favourite 1st.
Now for male images I've always loved LOTV as they do some of the best images for our males & this is one of my absolute faves.........
Wouldn't you love to be doing this right now.............somewhere peaceful & serene...........mmm

Ok back to reality.......... I've added string from my stash & the metal disk is Prima 'Vintage Metal Trinkets' & I added a button on top.

The image is called 'Lazy Afternoon'.........oooooh I would love one of those... I have coloured the image with my Distress Markers & the sky is chalked. I ran the image through my sewing machine but took out the thread.
The perfect sign is from the paper pad, I cut it out & popped it on some mini pads thingies lol.

The fabbylicious papers are MME 'Portabello Road' & I've machine stitched all the layers & of course decorated inside also. The buttons & the hessian are from my stash.
Can you believe there are no flowers, no foofiness..........no 'Vicky' lol. No tbh I love this card & it looks so much better IRL, not very often I'm this happy with a card!!

Well thats all from me will be back later to do some blog hopping. My granddaughter is staying tonight so once she is fast akip I can go hopping ;0)

Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by it means soooooooo much.
Squishy hugs to all mmwah
