**Cutting it fine...**

Evening all... (cutting it a bit fine for my second post this week - I know!)

How has everybody's weekend been?

I have had quite a nice day today.  I have dusted off my craft corner and set to work creating some cards for upcoming Birthdays this month as well as a congratulation card and I have also made a start on my thank you cards! Phew - I really have been a busy day. All that, and I've found time to walk the dog and cook a roast.

So for tonights post I wanted to share with you a card I have created for my Grandads Birthday. As many of you may know I really do seem to struggle creating male cards that I'm happy with but this one I love. I even got praise from the boyfriend and my dad!

As its a new year I wanted to try and work on my stamping skills - it's alright stamping single colours but I wanted push myself that little bit further.

I used a series of Versacolour inks and Papertrey Ink's Up, Up and Away.  Simple but perfect for Grandad!

What do you think?

Thats it for me tonight - hope you enjoyed reading.  Before I go I wanted to leave you with a little teaser for my next post!

Take Care
