Hi there Sylvie, well you smashed it! it's fabulous, I love it. Not so keen on men's cards myself but I'm going to have go! Have a lovely weekend:0) xxx


Hi Sylie, I love the effect of the embossed panel, and the timepieces are perfect. Thanks for your comment on my monochrome trees, it was not hard to do, just mask, stamp and sponge then repeat!

Hi Sylvie, You might not like the 'dreaded' mens cards, but I think you have cracked it with this one. Super image and sentiment, that fits perfectly with Chrissie and Mandi's challenge. Love Sheila (Cyprus)


Brilliant card. Love the clocks!

I love it - have a thing about clocks and watches anyway! Love the embossing too



Fantastic card Sylvie

I don't know why you don't like doing cards for men Sylvie because you do them so well! This is fab and I love the sentiment - I think it's one you certainly live by as you do so many lovely things; a picnic in the forest sounds just wonderful! Lovely photos. xx

PS You asked about my husband's job. He's still out of work but has applied for a couple this week. xx


Beautiful, I love your postings, with the glimpse of the sea behind the cards, fabulous!

Liz McGuire,

It's spot on. You must be kidding when you say mens cards are tough cos it doesn't show!

Fabulous card. I love clocks so this one definitely caught my eye. I was thinking you could even turn this into a canvas wall art.
