Game on

You know, this is one of the best Sundays EVER!  Only because I'm off work next week so I know I don't have to get up early and commute to London - YAY!!!  But the downside is that I have to decorate a bedroom this week.  :(  Still, I don't have to go to work and that's the important thing!

Anyhoo, I'm here today with my Bellarific Babe card and it's a birthday card for a guy...



I know far too many guys like this!  And I have to admit that I am known to play computer games too, spending hours on such fun games like Broken Sword, Baldur's Gate...if I only I had more time to play them, but alas I haven't managed to get into one for a while now.

Back to the card!  I used Mo Manning's Game On stamp and I used Zoe Pearn's A Beautiful Thing papers.  I couldn't help myself but use my Darice chevron embossing folder again - I just love it!  I used American Crafts rub on lettering.

Right, I am off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday.  Have a lovely day and I will be back tomorrow with my Whimsie Doodles new April challenge DT post!

Fabulous card for a young male Mary.. and hmmmm yes... I think that chevron folder may have to be a necessary addition to my stash upstairs.. it looks so good! You do cost me a fortune hon!!

Now... if you put your mind to it, you could have the bedroom done in what... two/three days?? Leaves plenty left for crafting methinks!

Hugs
