What's in the parcels?

Had a lovely morning out as hubby wasn't at work this week. We went to the coast as he wanted to visit a specialist car shop to buy some car mats and I fitted in a visit to a craft shop. It has been there 5 years and I have only just discovered it as it was advertised in the craft mags. It is tucked away in a residential area so with out advert would never have known it was there. Not much there I wanted but I did manage to pick up some papers. Well it would have been rude not to buy anything wouldn't it. Had a walk along the prom and then stopped at a garden centre on the way home where it started to rain.

My card features one of the lovely LOTV boys, papers are Papermania Hampstead, metal art from K&Co and baker's twine from Crafty Emma's.

Challenges:
Craft Us Crazy Masculine
Dutch Dare For the Boys
Card Makin Mamas For a child
Secret Crafter Male
Incy Wincy Masculine
Cupcake Boy, oh boy, oh boy
