Happy Retirement

Hello everyone , welcome to my room . Thank you for calling in . I love it too ,when you leave a comment that directs me to you so that I can visit you too.
Well I have to congratulate Michelle because her call to move Make it Monday  to its own blog has been so well accepted  and supported by so many as the record no. of entries shows .
Congratulations to last weeks winners .
My card this week shows off  an image, In the Harbour, from this weeks sponsor.

Here you will find some fantastic images for males .

I printed the image onto Whisper White and used a Spellbinders Nestabilities  labels die in two sizes to frame it .The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments on white oval is adhered off centre of red oval .
The card base is of  Night of Navy, with striped  dsp ,SU , layer.
Hope you like this and will go on to visit our sponsor soon .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.


  1. Hi Mum

    Love this image, so perfect for those tricky masculine cards.

    I love the way you have offset the image and the frame is fantastic.

    Michelle :-)

  2. Oh Shirley - this is one of my favorites of yours! I LOVE the splash of red...beautifully done.

  3. Hi Shirley-Anne,

    The image and the sentiment match perfectly and I really like the touch of red.

    I have been thinking of you... glad that MIM is growing so well.

    Your arty crafty material is lovely and it always seems to come in handy when I am looking for something like a tiny nestability to write the sentiment on. Thank you for your generosity!

    Off to the gym now... haven't been for a long time and can see my waist expanding! Lol!

    Have a nice Monday,
