It's all about the men over at Polka Doodles

The new challenge for the next fortnight over at Polka Doodles is "Men on our minds" and I have used the image from Work and Play 3.

 ** Work & Play Collection 3

I have made my card with my dad in mind and as he lives near the beach; it just suits him perfectly. I have deliberately kept the layout simple as wanted the image and sentiment to be the main focal point.

The sentiment is actually from the doctor section of the CD but I though it would work great on my card. I have cut it out as a cloud shape to match in with the backing paper. A bit of green torn paper as my grass and a quick card.

A bit sad today as the half term week is drawing to a close and the weather has been pants! All plans about doing my garden have not materialised but I will get out there very soon before if turns in to a jungle or the triffids come to take residence !!!

Have a great weekend everyone,
