The card we love to hate!!

Good morning all

Well whatever you're doing today I can bet it's not much different from yesterday - or tomorrow or even this time next week!!  This stay at home business ( this being the official day 3 but in reality has been going on for a week or two) isn't so bad if you stick to a routine. 

 I'm taking the attitude that it's nice to not have to hurry doing anything, as we can't do anything else I may as well just make the best of it - of course there are sooo many negatives in all of this but what's the point of focusing on that side, I am forever the optimist and I'm hoping this will carry us through : ) - this too will pass.

So lots of time for crafts - for me that I'm spending time clearing out and tidying my craft room- just a little bit at a time paper crafting - and Knitting.

Its our lovely Buffy's turn to host this weeks challenge at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenges

 and she has chosen the theme


Myself I Dont mind a masculine make (!)
I know  an awful lot of people hate it
I always take the attitude of basically plain and simple, mainly primary or muted colours and it nearly always fits the bill.  I made this card for a good friend's birthday

the front

the inside

This is what I did....
6 x6 inch card
Papers are an old LOTV paper pad - te cover is missing but it's called birthday something!!
Happy birthday die - Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions
Star die - an old memory box die
the stamps are from a set from MFT

Hope you'll join in with our challenge this week, see you there
and stay safe, take care, stay home, make the most of this quiet time because we'll all be joining in with real life again before we know it.

Like you Judith I'm an optimist (most of the time!), we just have to make the best of things and perhaps try to enjoy a quieter pace of life for a while. I know that many many people are a lot worse off than I am, so counting my blessings!
Great masculine card, love that sentiment.

Lovely masculine card Judith, definitely a time for clearing out and cleaning or with the weather being so good just getting outside in the garden. Stay safe.
