One for the Boys!

Yay! Summer is finally here ... I am soooooo glad to see the back of all that rain! Let's hope the weather stays hot now ... until ... erm ... about December!

First things first ... thank you all for sharing my joy at selling my house ... sooooo excited ... but soooooo much to do too ... to be fair ... it was about time I had a declutter! And because we are kind of down sizing it really is quite liberating getting rid of baggage ... I just need to keep that nagging voice at bay ... you know the one ... "You MIGHT need that!"  I am being firm with myself ... either I need it or I don't ... I am even turning down shopping trips ... totally unheard of for me!
The theme over at  Simon Says Stamp and Show this week is One for the Boys! I decided to recreate a card that I made yonks ago for a friend's special birthday! I hope he likes it!
All stamps used are Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that can hold his breath underwater for 24 hours at a time ... while giving safe passage to the entire Seal population through a mass of Great White Sharks ... with just a long legged brad and a Picket Fence Distress Stain.
Is there a term for a lot of Great White Sharks? You know like Shoal or pod or summink?
I must away ... Have a good week people!
OOOOooh! Don't forget to join us for the challenge ... you could win a $50 Shopping Spree donated by Simon Says Stamp!
Laters!
