Moving Along with the Times - A Card for a Man

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good week. I have been able to walk to school every day this week. Though I did get a bit wet walking home yesterday.

The new challenge starts on the Moving Along with the Times (MAWTT) Challenge Blog the theme this time is to make a card for a man.

I used the brick embossed paper from my stash and I inked with Distress ink. I used the Double Pierced Rectangles from Creative Expression to cut an aperture and a frames for the image. 

I have a pad of these image by Pollyanna Pickering. This owl is just so cute poking his head round the corner. 

I used the ivy die also from Creative Expressions to decorate round the frame. 

This is a die from Crafter's Companion. 

Now I have a little confession. Although I intended this card to be for a man, it has in fact been given to a lady. Someone wanted a card with an owl on it for a Brownie leader. I had this one and they were happy with it so that is what happened. It is funny how things work out. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
