Tired Friday!

I think that we are all tired as a family today and ready for the weekend, as for some reason none of us has been sleeping well. That hasn't stopped Alex having a lot of fun at nursery though...he has come back filthy every day from having spent most of the day playing in the garden with his friends!
Crafting wise I don't seem to have achieved much over the past couple of days. I did manage to make this birthday card for my brother though. I used a leather effect embossing folder over the mottled leather brown card to create the background layer which I used as a frame around the main image.  I used brass brown metal sheet with my Tim Holtz cogs die and an iron brad to create the cog in the corner, and the main image was from Darkroom Door. This card therefore fits with Gingersnaps 'leather, brass and iron', Fresh Brewed and Simon says stamp 'shaped card', The Pixie cottage 'embossed', Meljen's 'frame it' and sew many cards 'anything goes' challenges. That is all from me for now. Have a great weekend everyone.
Love,
Caro
