Hobbycutz Challenge 64. . . . . . . .One for the Boys

Good morning, good morning, its great to stay up late, good morning, good morning to you !!!
Love Singin' in the Rain. . . . . .well, the film rather than literally hahaha!
Hope you are all well and having a nice weekend. Had Friday, yesterday and today off and Italian GP this weekend so guess whose a happy duckie! MInd you, I have been up to my eyes in catching up with chores, so not really a rest but at least all of the windows, inside and out are gleaming and curtains washed too. Lots more done too so hoping for a bit of chill time today.
Thanks for the comments on my feathers. For those of you with masks still in packets, its time for them to come out to play lol!

Now, today's card is my DT creation for Hobbycutz Challenge 64, One for the Boys. This was chosen by mixamatoasties and is sponsored by The Paper Shelter.
Hope you can pop over and have a look at what the DT have come up with and if you have time would love to see you enter the challenge. There have been a few issues with the challenges going live but it should definitely be there on time today.

Don't we all love making cards for the guys. . . . . . .hears whistling wind and sees tumble weed rolling in front of me lol!
As I've used a fishing and golf theme recently, I thought it time to go for cricket. This is another of my trusty Docrafts sporty toppers, mounted onto an embossed layer and "framed" with Hobbycutz fab laser cuts. These were just coloured with a navy permanent marker pen.

White A5 size base card
Red PMD card
Navy PMD card
Hobbycutz corner laser cuts
Docrafts cricket topper
Docrafts Happy Birthday embossing folder
White gel pen (just to highlight the Happy Birthday)

Simple to put together but still a useful one for the fellas methinks.

Well, I should be tucking into my toast and jam shortly. Nesta's Dad had some pears hanging over from his neighbours tree so I made some pear and raspberry jam last week, yummmmm. 
Its nearly time for my annual, green tomato chutney, hot lime pickle, pickled onions, mincemeat and pickled red cabbage marathon. I've got my saucepans and jam jars doing stretches and limbering up as we speak. . . . . suppose I should be doing a bit of limbering myself as well lol!!!

Then a whirl of red blooded men, heat, passion and thrills. . . . . . . . . .no, not an afternoon with Mr Duck (or in the words of the great Meatloaf, I would be all revved up and no place to go hahaha!) but live F1, hurrah! Hopefully, Lewis and Nico will play nicely today.

Have a great Sunday folks and hope the coming week is kind to you all.
