For the men in our life

Hi and good morning! Hope that you are still doing fine this lovely week of fall. We're have a nice and lovely weather here in the South East of Sweden. Cold nights and sunny days. I love the air during this time of the year. It's crisp and lovely. But the other night I was freezing cold. I think I need to stop using my sandals during the evenings now. I still have not stopped freezing. LoL

Ok, today is Aud Sentiment day and that means a card made with a sponsor image and the theme is set to "For The Men In Our Life  (make a masculine card using a  suitable sentiment)". Sponsoring is Doodle Pantry. For my card have I used an image called "Hotrod". It's a lovely image and I loved to colour it. Always nice to do something different from the ordinary people and flowers I mainly spend my time colour.

I have paired the image up with some great designer papers from Fancy Pants called Swagger. I love the colours in this pad and I was lucky (read bright) enough to colour the image to fit the image well. The metal stars are brads from YouDo, ribbon is from the Ribbon girls and the twine is from Pysseltagen and the brand is Prima. The stitched circle is a die from MFT. I wrote my sentiment in Swedish and it says "On Father's day". We have that coming up during the fall here in Sweden so I thought I would be prepared for once.

I cut the car out and I just missed the angle a tiny bit and it's so irritating but no way I was going to start all over again with this. This is the third time I have coloured the image up and then messed it up by cutting too much again, so this have to do. Enough is enough how to speak.

Well my friends. I will actually be back with another post this week, and that is tomorrow. Stay tuned for that. And we'll meet again.

Love n hugs
