One for the BOYS

Well I'm running really late with this months challenge post, but first week back at work and it was 7 days straight. Mum was still sick so not only working 7 days straight but also doing everything at home before & after work as well as taking hubby back and forth to work as he was also working 8 days straight when he returned to work.

So here we are 9 days into the month and I've finally got the time to sit down and up date my blog.

I had a lot of fun creating this card as it's my first attempt and a pop up box card and I made it especially for my hubby so the timing was perfect for this challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges.

As always we have amazing sponsors

Marianne Design have kindly donated the following prize:
the winner also wins a £15 voucher to Bearly Mine Designs shop
Before I upload my card I would like to say congratulations to the winners of last months "flowers" challenge and we hope to see you all back for this one.
