Chocks Away

Morning all - well, I hope it is when this appears, Blogger took four hours yesterday between my pressing Publish and the post actually showing up.  I know one or two of you are also having this problem.  It's happened before, but it seems quite random.  Hey ho, never mind eh.

My stash of male cards was getting quite low so I thought it was time to do something about it.  Having had a rummage around, I found this neglected Lili of The Valley stamp.

I think the stamp is called Aeroplanes and it was retired quite some time ago.
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are all Basic Grey from the Kraft pad (not sure if this is still available, I've had it a long time)
MFT double stitched square die
Old LOTV grunge word stamps
Actually, most of the stuff on this card is out-of-date except the die and the inks
but I'm not going to stop using my old stuff, just because it's no longer out there!

So, that's me for today.  I'm back to work and already counting down to the weekend again.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Great boy's card, Squirrel! I love the sweet image and fab CAS design.
Blogger seems to have a mind of his own sometimes and can be a rather fickle thing - we just have to be glad when he's behaving! Hugs, Lisa x

What an awesome dude card! If we had to stop using our old stuff because it was no longer available, we'd have piles of pretty trash. Or maybe that's just me...

Oh what a sweet boy card. I just love it Squirrel. Love your coloring and layout.
