FOR MY SON..........................

Afternoon all!

Yep another early post from me today and if you didn't know already I have the whole week off woohoo!
So hopefully plenty of crafting for me in between doing the last of the Xmas shopping!!

Wow did you watch the X-Factor final!, I was soooooooooooo pleased Matt won, he was truly brilliant and I was slightly surprised One Direction came third!, after all the hype I really thought they would of won. So what I'm I going to watch next Saturday night?, well there is the final of Strictly and fingers crossed for Kara I think she is FAB..U..LOUS lol!

Right, onto today's card. This card is made this for my Son George who will be 17 on Thursday ( where has the time gone! ) and I have used a fab image from the Greeting Farm called My Guy Ian. I have used some great papers from MME Fine and Dandy collection called "True Blue" and some string and a sentiment, again a nice and simple card :o)

This cool guy is going into the following challenges :-

The sketch and papers are lovely, and the brads and string are perfect.
I love this image, I bought it in October and used it for my hubby's Birthday card last month, great 4 the dreaded blokes cards.
I have finihsed crafting until after Christmas now, should be back soon and will still be visiting on the pc, but my table has to be cleared for my visitors.....No crafting, what will I do!!!
Take Care and best wishes to you and yours. Debbiexx

WOW X Factor was amazing but like you I thought One Direction would come second at the very least! I'm pretty sure Simon Cowell will be signing them up today though ay - watch this space...

Re Corrie - will it be Sally? I think the surgeon they alluded to will get there in time to save Peter. Can't wait to find out later. xx
