The Journey

It is Father's Day on Sunday so it is only fitting that I share a masculine card - I don't make them often enough but am trying to change that!

I have used the Darkroom Door Old Trick Photo Stamp
The sentiment has been cut out with the Spellbinders Grommet Tags Shapeabilities and attached with old gold brads.  The Die has been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.
The background paper is from an old book - they make the best patterned paper and we all have them lying around  - a great way to recycle!
This card is for the following challenges:
Paper Shelter Challenge - layers on layers
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Shopping Our Stash - Use Your Favourite Things (Dies) 
Through The Craft Room Door - Diva or Anything Goes
Hooked on Crafts - Cards for Men
House of Gilli - Your Favourite Colour Combo
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes 
The Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes 
Totally Stampalicious - Anything Goes 
Catered Crop Distress 
The Squirrel & the Fox - One for the Men 
Thank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!! Your encouragement is such a blessing for me - it makes my day! God bless you!
