This ones for the Krafty people!

Good morning all

Its team A's turn again at Moving along with the times this week 
and my lovely blogging buddy Janice is hosting the challenge
She has chosen the theme 

Kraft

All we need to see is some Kraft card on your project - how easy is that!

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous 



and I knew what I wanted to make straight away
I had seen this image a while ago and while its not a masculine image at all
I knew it was perfect for my son Matthew's birthday next week
She's called - What the librarian reads available here

Matthew reads more than anyone I've ever known! - anything and everything
There's not a week goes by that the postman doesn't deliver at least one book he's bought
I encouraged all my kids to read and the three of them are all prolific readers - but Matthew takes first prize! - I bought him a kindle for Christmas a couple of years ago thinking it would be easier for him to upload books  - but he doesn't use it -he just loves books!

 I've made it fairly simple with just the bare few embellies that aren't girly and the Kraft colour works perfectly to make it a manish card (Is that a word!?)

Here's what I did....

Image - What the librarian reads from saturated Canary
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Papers - K & co (sorry i dont know what they're called - they're years old!
Vintage seam binding - crafty ribbons
Sentiment made in word
Label - Dienamics
Corners - Dienamics
Gems from my stash
