Male card!

Hullo, Hullo,
Oooh such a long time since I last posted such a bad blogger I am, I do apologise, life in general has been busy and then we have had the dreaded lurgies that have been floating around.
I am still trying to shake it off but still have the dreaded cough that keeps me awake at night (and everyone else supposedly! oops)
I thought you may like to see the card that I had made for my Dads special birthday, male cards are always hard but this one just came together and I love it I have used lots of punches and dies for this one, I even embossed, I always forget about my CB folders it's such a sin as I love the effect they achieve this one is called Diamond plate and is fab for the guys.
The cork tiles are little pads off a new piece of glass we recently bought so I trimmed them to size to make scrabble effect tiles!!
I will be entering my card into the following challenges
Papertake Weekly - autumn colours
Tuesday throwdown - buttons and bows
Paper playtime - about love or something you love (i luv my ms punches and mft dies not forgetting my Dad of course!!)
Little papershop - Die cuts
Anything goes - emboss it
Well that's it folks for today but I will be back as although I have been MIA two lovely ladies had been thinking of me and given me awards which cheered me up I can tell you so I will post them next time.
Toodle pop!
missed you all x
