Make My Monday week 44

I must apologise to anyone who had problems finding my blog yesterday - I couldn't access it myself but hopefully I've now managed to sort the problem and fingers crossed it appears to be OK now I've verified settings.

Over at Make My Monday we are still on a men and boys theme with the added topic of vintage - a favourite of mine.  Background paper is from My Craft Studio and it was tweaked a bit and overstamped.   Sizzix die cut and embossing folders were used to make a border in kraft card.  The stamps are from various vintage sets by Creative Expressions and Chocolate Baroque.  Hopefully you will be able to see this if there are no more problems with my blog which had apparently been removed by Blogger due to 'unusual activity'.


  1. glad you're back Val - obviously Blogger felt you should post more! Like the tweaked background - wonder if I have that bit of MCS?- and just love that quote!

  2. I love this card Val, perfect for a man. I like the way you've overstamped the backing paper, lovely vintage colours as well.
