Get Well Soon

Good Morning to all my fab friends and  followers. I hope you have had a good weekend. the weather here wasn't so bad at least it didn't rain yesterday. We went to Durham on Saturday did a bit of shopping and I picked up some cute stamps in the craft shop in the indoor market. On the way back stopped at a pub/hotel my husband had been to before at Coxhoe called The Old Mill what a really nice place the food was great and they had a huge Gluten free menu I actually had a crumble for afters first one in more than 5years such a treat for me.
Anyway todays card is a man card its a get well card I've made for a friend of mine who has been a bit poorly recently. I used the same Michael Powell stamp I used for my husbands  birthday card in January but I've used  neutral colours this time and kept to a sepia theme. I really like the stamp as it is so versatile.

  1. Brilliant card, the neutral colour scheme works so well and I love how the sentiment is across the bunting. Congratulations on your blogging milestone!

  2. Love this card! The sepia look really suits this stamp and the bunting is fab. I've got my eye on that die as I really like it too. The charm is a lovely touch. Congratulations for your blogging 1st birthday tomorrow! Debra x

  3. Fab men's card, I always find them so much harder to make. Love the die cut bunting & the little pop's of colour works really well. I hope your friend is better soon. Congratulations on one year of blogging.
