Mr Bright Idea

Hello.... Ooh it's been so cold today!  Well it has been for the last few days I suppose, but I was forced outside for the school run today... brrrr!  There's ice and slushy snow everywhere too, I don't like it at all.

I have another male card today, with one of my new Darkroom Door stamps... they have some fab stamps for male cards :o)

Bit different isn't it?  Hopefully it'll appeal to someone - not everyone like soppy romantic cards do they?

Items Used
6" x 8" card base using white linen card from Papermill Direct
Stamp - Mr Bright Idea - Darkroom Door
Distress Inks - forgotten the colours!
Papers - Happy Days - Papermania
Sentiment - LOTV
Frame stamp - Waltzingmouse Stamps
Nestabilities Labels 5 dies
Stampin' Up Owl Punch (for the little hearts!)
Husband sentiment - Stampin' Up
Goosebumps spray - can't see it in the photo but it's a glossy/ bumpy texture spray, sprayed over the image
Gem from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Cupcake Craft - cool men

I typed this up a couple of hours ago, and then forgot to hit publish lol, so I'm a bit later than planned!  Hope you enjoy the rest of your evening :o)
