Hey Old Timer!!

Hi Folks!!

Hope your weekend is going well. Has anyone seen a glimpse of sunshine in the UK at all?? I'm beginning to think that we are heading towards autumn already and that somehow I missed the summer!!

Anyway, if the weather is not great, it gives us an excuse to do more crafting and we have a new challenge over at Here Come the Boys for you:


I think it is going to be quite popular as men and travel do seem to go together!!

We are sponsored by Ewe2can craft this time


with this great prize:

Now I have to admit that I'm not too sure about my card, you know how sometimes you set out with an idea to make a card and the finished result is nothing like your original plan??
Well this is one of those cards!!
The photo doesn't help either - my camera seems to have insisted on making the copper metallic card orange and the beige backing paper a bit pink - groan!!
Anyway, enough winging here it is:

The penny farthing stamp is by rubber Stampede and has been combined with various nesties and a few carefully selected letters from K&Co!!
Here's a closer look at the image, heat embossed in copper!!
I didn't have any large copper brads so I heat embossed some card candy to match too!!

Thanks for looking today and I hope you will join us at HCTB too!!
I'd also like to enter a few challenges:

Simon says Stamp & Show: Embossing ( I hope this is a suitable style for your challenge??)
Kaboodle Doodles: Embossing
Tuesday Throwdown: Something metallic (Copper Embossing!!)
Dig Doodle Shop: Clean & Simple

  2. I really like your card, Jacky. I love the fleur de lis... and I love the copper embossing; how clever to use it on the card candy. I've just ordered some card candy from the UK - I love buying all my little goodies! - now I'm going to try embossing some, thanks! Dee
