Just a quick post from me today, i've been busy baking bread, well actually i used a Hovis packet mix in my bread maker, which i dug out of the back of the cupboard for it's yearly usage, lol, but the smell is mouth watering.

I did make this simple card this morning for my Sister's hubby, for tomorrow. How inconsiderate of my Sister to marry a man who's birthday is just the day before hers, and as you can see it's a big one too.
The Alota stamp i have had for a while, but this is the first time i've inked it up, he's a builder so i thought it was fitting, the papers are old Basic Grey Archaic.
I would like to enter this card into Cute Card Thursday challenge - Boyz to Men.
