Whitby Abbey

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers sorry I've not been around much this last week I was away for three days with my Golden Girl Friends visiting our friend who lives in the Wirral we all had a brilliant time. I'll post some photos later when I get them from my friend.
My card today is one I made a while ago and was one for the Craft Group ladies to make. We decided we rarely make men cards so this is a male card for a change. I used a great stamp that I've had for years of  Whitby Abbey from Crafty Individuals. If you have never seen their stamps they do some amazing designs.
