am nursing my cat at the mo.he came home late this morning with a big piece of fur missing and a nasty cut or scratch.i have been cleaning it all day and trying to stop him from scratching it and making it worse.my vets is shut today but i think i will need to take him in the morning as it looks like it may need treatment.

I love this card Coops. Men's cards are the hardest I find, but I think you've made a great job of this one. Black and white works perfect for a man.

Hi Coops

I really like your card .. .. I think you are just missing not colouring something and that is why you are not keen!! LOL!!!

You have lots of lovely layers and a great layout.

Hope your little cat is ok today.

Di said...

This is a great card coops, it does'nt need any colouring.The worst thing about colouring cars and bikes for men is that they're likely to pick and think " stupid woman's coloured it all wrong, that bit should be black not silver". I'm sure the bloke who it's for will love it. Di.xx

Rachel said...

That's a fab card, Coops!! :) Male cards are hard- esp ordered ones when you don't know the recipient but Black and White always seems to go down well!! :) The image on this is great without colour- and I agree with the person who said colouring can be a risk if they'll know better than you how it should be!! ;) - and I love how you used the corrugated card!! :)
Hope your cat's doing better after his trip to the vets!! :)
hugs, Rachel x
