thanks so much!

well another day another challenge, today i am showing my card for "stamp something" ~which this week is "faux something" ~ use pretend stitching, paper that looks like fabric, leather, metal etc!! so i have used paper that looks like fabrics , linen and denim, used rub~on stitching (which wouldn`t rub on , so had to use doublesided tape!!) and diecut card to look like tacs (nails). used the denim fabric paper for edwins turn~ups and belt!!
this is a card i made for aaron to sent to a relative who was very kind and sent him birthday money (which he has already spent)!
had a child free few hours yesterday,(first time in years) while both sets of parents had one boy each , and gave paul and myself time to go out for lunch ~oooooooh hot food ,(finished meal), adult conversation ~heaven!! even had an hour to window shop!! did try on a lovely dresss ~but too long!!
looks like a day in today , as it is raining again, here on the south coast!! (unless we can think of somewhere inside!!)
hope you have a good day , and find some "me" time byeeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

Sounds like you had great "adult" time. It is very important to have it time to time. My daughter is nearly six and it is getting easier... (and I have only one kid :)
Your card looks great, good idea using different papers.
