New Home

Good Morning all!
It's almost the weekend, do you have plans?
There are a few things going on around here, so not sure quite 
how things will pan out!
Here's the card I have to share with you today!

A friend has just moved in to a new home.
He's back to the single life, so I thought this fun image was apt!
It's from a Kanban diecut topper & sentiment set, called 
So Macho- Funny Business.
it's been around in my stash for a while, just waiting for the right moment!
In fact everything on this card has been in my stash for quite a while!
I used an A6 silver grey card base & embossed with a chevron folder.
The dotty tape is from papermania,
I used silver peel off's for the sentiment to tie in with the silver foiling
around the image. I also added a little silver key charm.
I kept this card flat so it could easily be posted.
That's about it really. 
I know a lot of people find making cards for men quite daunting
 but I find if you keep things fairly simple & add a smile, it seems to do the trick. 
Thanks so much for popping intoday!
Have a great weekend!
