Have a Great Day

Good morning all. 
Managed to get some more DT work done yesterday after supervising DD cleaning her bedroom out! I've still got loads of cards to do for the next few months though.
I'm busy trying to get all the blogs I follow into groups to make life easier when trying to do commenting - I've done all the ABC's so far....only another 23 letters to go then!

A card for a male to share with you today, this will go to my eldest in June.

Decoupage image is a Wellington Bear layered on a nestie cut from Kraft. Backing is the new Tim Holz Kraft Core which I've embossed with one of my new Die'sire folders and then sanded. Charm from Meiflower. Twine, sentiments and buttons from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Creative Moments - animals
Paper Shelter - anything goes
Creative Card Crew - masculine
Creative Creations - things beginning with B (bear, beer, bow, buttons, brown)
My Craft Spot - strings and things
OLLCB - it's a man thing
