Holding on to my blanket

I had a lovely time in Great Yarmouth yesterday, especially shopping at Craftmania with 20% of everything. I am now the proud owner of a Grand Calibur, an early Birthday pressy, as you will know if you read yesterday's post. I bought a few other goodies too. My card today was made with paper from the Fairyopolis CD from Crafter's Companion and a Popcorn stamp. I used Core'dinations card and an embossing folder and sanded and tore for a distressed look. The corners were cut with a Sizzix die.

Challenges:

DYSU Boys or Men
2 Sisters Boys and their toys
Here Come the Boys Brown and orange

Apologies for lack of commenting but Hubby isn't working and we are off out and about this week.
