Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers I hope you all had a great weekend and  are enjoying the lovely weather especially those of you who are on holiday. Today I'm posting another of the projects we made recently at the craft group I go to. This was a one of my designs but the Beach Huts embossing folder belongs to Pamela another of my craft group friends. I used a stamp for this card that I have had for ages I have a few of these Michael Powell stamps they are great for the men. I actually met Michael Powell three years ago when I went to the quilt show at the NEC with my friend Val he was selling his fabulous cross stitch designs which these stamps are based on. Anyway enough rambling this is my card.
