New Job Card

Wow, how fast has the last week flew by? Come to think of it, the last few months has flew past like you wouldn't believe. Before we know it, it will be christmas. Yay, my favourite time of the year! :)

Having a browse round blog land this morning, (something that I have not been doing for a while) and saw the new challenge blog has begun over at Cutie Pie Challenge Blog. I was even lucky enough to be chosen for some of their lovely blog candy! This will be a blog I will visit very often I think :)

My dad recently got offered a new job so I made a card for him as I've never done a new job card before. I have only finished it today but he started this morning lol! Don't think he will mind anyway :) Here it is

The bear is from the xmas kit free with Papercraft Inspirations this month. The backing papers are Forever Friends too but came with a decoupage set I had ages ago. Some peel offs and card candi and I think it looks very cute. I always have problems with cards for men as I seem to make them a bit too cute but I think it works here. I would like to enter my card into the foloowing challenges;

Crafty sentiments - Spots + stripes
Cardsformen - Anything but square
Cutecardthursday - Anything goes
Doyoustackup - Silver
Jellyparkchallenges - Pass it on
Totallygorjuss - Nothing square about me
Totallypapercrafts - Clean and simples
