YOU ARE VERY WISE

 {WITH AGE COME WISDOM and YOU ARE VERY WISE}

Hope all my bloggy friends are having a wonderful Friday and are looking forward to the weekend.  Its a cool a lovely sunny but cold winters day here in Johannesburg, perfect weather for staying indoors and being crafty.
I am here today with another Birthday Card, but this time for a guy.  As we know, all guys love their wheels, so this little creation should appeal to any guy.

  The brads and design papers are from my stash. The folded embellishments have been created with squares.  The image is a pre-coloured image sourced from the web.
The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC and I used dry chalks on it.
 I have also been busy with a little crochet project, making a scarf for hubby.
It was created with  just treble crochet stitches.

I would love to enter my little card creation into the following challenges:

    1. Wow! You have been REALLY busy with that beautiful scarf for hubby! It is gorgeously done, Desiree. Looks nice and snuggly and every stitch is perfectly done, right down to the pretty scallops and tassels! (love those colors). Your card is WONDERFUL! I wanted to hear about the image... Like you I also have some things from the web and do not know where I got them. Your masculine card is perfect - especially the image and sentiment go together! Try to stay warm. You are all blustery, and we are hot and humid!

      Thanks for joining us in the {Our Crafty Corner Challenge}! Hope to see more of your pretty projects again soon! Please check back to see if you are a winner!
