Mr. Brown's Hobby

My Son-in-Law has recently gotten into woodworking so this image of Mr. Brown from Phindy's Place is perfect for a card for his upcoming birthday, especially since the first thing he made was a bird house.

The challenge this week at Phindy's Place challenge blog is a 1, 2, 3 Recipe challenge  - 1 image, 2 designer papers and 3 embellishments.

You don't have to use a Phindy image but with so many fabulous ones in her store and a chance to enter twice if you do, why wouldn't you?

I did get my husband to go through the closets and get rid of some of the clothes he hasn't worn in ages and then I did the same.  On top of that, I went through all the drawers, the bathrooms and storage closet and boy have I ever purged.  There are 7 large green garbage bags ready to go to Goodwill and 2 for the garbage.  My back is killing me but I feel super satisfied with all I have accomplished this week.  I still have a few things to wear but I will really have to do some shopping - oh woe is me!

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything Goes
Scrapbook Sisters - Squares
Top Tip Tuesday - Dig out the Old (Lacing)
Great Impressions - Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - Birthday Card
Little Claire's - Male Theme
Totally Gorjuss - Charms
