WHAT A BIG PRESSIE!...............................

Afternoon all!

Hope you are all well and what an awful day (and night) with the weather!, The wind was dreadful, things were crashing around and all that rain!! Anyway, still feeling rough today and I'm getting fed up already, not a good patient lol and a big thank for all your lovely messages :o) 

Right, straight onto days card. This handsome chappie is from Lili of the Valley ( oh boy, did I spend some pennies today on their new releases!, Shhhhh, don't tell Steve tho' lol ) and I used  a new paper pad from MME Fine & Dandy called "True blue". There are some really lovely papers in this pad for all those difficult boy cards we have to make lol!

This cutie is going into the following Challenges :-
Sarah Hurley # 16 ~ Fab Sketch
Lili of the Valley # 73 ~ Anything goes & Blog Hop
