I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #95

This is my DT card for this week's challenge on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which this week is set by the lovely TRACIE. She has chosen a theme of:-

IT'S A MAN'S WORLD

Now we all struggle with men's cards. I personally do because I love my flowers and sparkle and it just doesn't seem right on a man's card LOL

This card was for an order for friend at work who wanted special card for his brother's 40th birthday so decided to use the lovely new papers in stock at Secret Crafter which are foiled ( see a little bit of sparkle LOL)

Take a look at the challenge blog to see the other girlies creations and to join us.
