Normal service is resumed (whatever normal is)!

Well after having been without my laptop for a few days after it caught a nasty virus - I'm hoping it is back to full health!! 

I thought I would post the 2013 card I made for FIL - I was also going to post the 2013 version of MIL's card but unfortunately it doesn't look as though I took a photo of it - derrhh!!

Ingredients are as follows:-

Black card from the CE neutral pack
Kraft card
SB Majestic squares
Couture Creations EF = Houndstooth
Tim Holtz stamp
Sentiment stamp = Impression Obsession
Stamps to make the background = CE clocks and CE Newsprint
Black ribbon from my stash

The majestic squares are a fab set of dies as the give you so many options and an added bonus are the corner pieces that come from the smaller die on the right hand side of the card.  I personally think these corners are nicer than the purpose bought corner dies.  This was a really easy card to make and I think it would suit most men

Thank you for all the messages of support, it is much appreciated and hopefully this will be start of many posts.
