Too cute to miss!! Shirt and tie card.

Morning peeps!!
It was my day off yesterday and in between cleaning up and mopping floors ( that didn't want to dry because for once there was no wind!!!) I had time to make something!!!
This little card came about because I just happened to turn C&C on for 2 minutes and the lady on there was making this card.

I was cleaning at the same time so missed some of the folds so I turned to trusty old google who in turn took me to the amazing Dawn's blog ( I should of known to look there first!!!) Check out the linky for Dawn's fab video on how to make your own.
The only thing I forgot to do now I see the picture on my blog is to make sure I had turned my awesome funkyhand patterned paper up the right way!!!!!
I love the way it opens up so you can write your message inside....

I added a little pocket and buttons to mine too.
Men's cards are so tricky to make so I want to thank Dawn for this fabby tutorial, I am definitely going to be making a lot more of these!!

And here is my gorgeous little Mo!! ( yup, with his dylan dog, that dog still goes everywhere with him!!!) This picture was taken in between the tear of monday morning but I think it came out quite well. He has had 3 days back at school now and is much happier. He loves his new teacher and is coming home happy with no tears in a morning so that is amazing!

This card used....

Dawn's fabby tutorial.

London fog memento ink for edges ( still not got myself a new charcoal chalk pad!!!)
