One For The Boys!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well and happy ~ what a glorious day yesterday was here in Warwickshire.  We had one of our Beardie fun days out, an event that I always thoroughly enjoy every year which involves fun show classes, games, raffle and dogbola (a doggy tombola) and more.

Whilst we were there a lovely lady called Elaine arrived with a Beardie that she was fostering, I knew about this dog and the intention was to see if anyone there would consider giving her a forever home.  Well, guess what ~ Holly as she is called is now a new member of our furry family, so that takes the total to four Beardies now!  She is eleven years old and such a sweetie and has settled in already.  I will try and post some photos of her soon.

So, enough of Beardie stuff, on to todays share which is a card for a man ~ I know a lot of you find them a hard subject, but I actually don't mind them as long as I've got a theme to work with.

I found a sketch to work to, but didn't save the blog page, so can't reference back to it ~ I couldn't enter the challenge anyway because it stipulated that you had to use flowers!
