I'm back!!

And I bet you never even missed me, lol!

Gosh a whole 24 hours with no internet connection and I was beside myself. What does that say about me?? Sad I know.

But I am seriously glad to have it back now. Although I'm not sure how long before I'm cut off again. We are changing to wireless connection and they (internet provider) have already stuffed up by cutting off the old connection before sending out the modem for the wireless connection ( a few phone calls with my grumpy voice on soon got them reconnecting us). I'm expecting more stuff ups when it comes time to set us up with the new one.

But on a much happier note I have a card to share to share with you today that is a little different from my usual, in that it is for a guy.

Very simple layout and no colouring so it was a pretty quick make. I tried to "dirty" it up a little. I'm pretty happy with how it came up but I think I missed the look I was going for with the staples. It's the first time I have tried using them on a card.

I decorated the inside of the card simply with some of the left over DP.

I'm linking this card up to

Thanks for stopping by today.

I 'll be around to check out all your wonderful blogs very soon to see what I missed in the last 24hrs lol.

Michelle :-)
