Hi Coops

A great card for the males .. .. great layout and I love the sky and grass!!!

I don't envy you the clear up!

We had our bathroom re-plastered and just couldn't believe the dust that flew all over the house.

I guess your weekend will be a clear up campaign .. .. but it will all be worth it in the end I'm sure.

Hope you have a good and productive weekend.

Love Jules xx

I think this card is fab, love the colouring and perfect for all those awkward men in our lives. I can't remember the plaster use but I can remember having black mortar when we moved in the 80's and the dust it created, we were still finding it a year after it was removed. Hgs, Amanda x

Laura said...

Hi Coops! Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog hun. Great card! I think you've done a fab job, really like the clouds and grass you've added. It's horrible when you make a card you don't like, but I always remind myself that the card goes to someone else who will usually love it because it's handmade :)

Ooh Coops I can remember how bad it is after plastering!! when we had it done we had everything covered with dustsheets but it still somehow got into everything!!! all my books… cd's… everything had to be taken out and cleaned individually - it took us weeks to do everything!! and seem to remember a lingering musty smell too !! -Yuk... aww I hope you get sorted out real soon ....
I love your card - the image is brilliant and I love the golf ball sentiment…. and the scrummy papers - it's wonderful!
Take Care
Big Hugs

Hi Coops, don't know why you're not keen, it's great. Love the details. Tried doing grass and made a hash of it, it's much harder than it looks and yours is ace.
Don't envy you the clean up, the dust gets everywhere, but the finished result will be worth it.
Enjoy your weekend.
