Full Steam Ahead!

BG0805a

I dread the men in my life having a birthday! Why can't they like butterflies and fluffy things like the rest of us?

OH's Dad's Birthday tomorrow and I have been building up to making him a card since the start of the month!

Luckily, in the nick of time, The Basic Grey Challenge came to the rBG0805escue with a fab sketch!

I should n't moan ... I managed to use another  stamp out of my drawer ... this one is the Steam engine and is from Fun Stamps.

The paper's are Basic Grey :0)) All are from the Periphery range 6 X 6 pad and my male take on an embellishment is made from Bazzill, Grunge Paper and one of T!m's coggy wheely thingies!

I must go ... I am definitely running out of steam ... should have been out 10 minutes ago and I am not even ready ... Oops!

See Ya's!
