Prepare for take off.......

Good Morning!! How's your weekend going?!! 
If Mr Blogger is behaving himself I will hopefully still be under my duvet catching a few extra zzz's when this goes live!! Our new challenge at Here Come the Boys for this fortnight is: 
which I must admit is not exactly my strong point - although I do find it easier to do 'masculine' rather than girly vintage for some strange reason!! 
Anyway, here we go.. prepare for take off......

I've had this Papermania stamp for ages and when I rescued it from the bottom of the drawer I couldn't think why I hadn't used it more. Seven attempts and a lot of cursing later, I remembered why it was in the bottom of the drawer... it's a real **** to get a decent image from, & it is now back in the drawer!! The papers are a really random mix from my brown scraps file, there's a bit of Nitwits paper in there, some Basic Grey and several odds and ends!! All a bit distressed with brown chalk ink!!
Thanks for looking today and please head over to Here Come the Boys to see the rest of the teams great cards and to check out the prize from our new sponsor Digi Doodle shop!
