I have embossed my white card with a couple of the cuttlebug folders added my lovely image "picking apples" flowers and ribbon are from stash, used my round punch to cut away my corners, saves buying another punch!

CraftyCatz DT card

Goodmorning... it's a bit of a quick post today. just wanted to add my DT card for craftycatz the theme this week has been set by Kirsty, she has had a little bit of a break from us blog hopping peeps,, welcome back Kirsty!!, she is setting this weeks challenge of "One for the boys", which i must admit i had to do straight away cause i am not good at men's cards, no imagination or inspiration for them at all, so really wanted it done and finished even before i got started, lol

Used cuttlebug to emboss card with half swiss dots and other half Happy Birthday, papers from Bearly designs CD, Image is Penny Black buttons and ribbon from stash. The white circle is too represent a golf ball, did emboss it with the swiss dots folder, looks better in real life so too speak...

Have a good day all,
