Male Theme at MAWTT

Good morning and I hope everybody is well and enjoying this superb weather.  I have no problem with the sun (well, that's not true because I burn very easily) but my major problem is no rain for the past six weeks!  Does the world not know that my water supply comes from a well and we are running short!! Help! And to cap it all the immersion heater blew up the other day and so we are unable to heat the water except by boiling kettles.  Luckily the new one is on order and should be here in a couple of days then John will get to work fixing it. It's great being married to a man who can do all this work and so never have to worry about tradesmen.

Anyway, now to my card for this months challenge at MAWTT,; the theme chosen by  Jackie is to make your project male themed. I never have enough male cards in my stash so this is good for me..

My Card

7" x 5" black base card - Rymans card
topper, backing paper and gold cogs - Kanban
gold mirri card - Crafter's Companion

I was rooting around in my drawers (as you do) and I found some ancient stash which was perfect for putting together this very quick steam punk male card. I'm sorry the picture is so dark.  The sun was so bright it was really difficult to get a decent picture.

Why not pop across to the blog and see what my the rest of my team mates have come up with?

That's all from me for now.

Take care.

You made a great male card Christine!
And over here the same: very dry for many weeks now. But I can't complain, because we had a great time in Shropshire and Wales during our 3-weeks holidaytrip without any rain! We enjoyed it so much!

Hi Christine
Great card for the challenge and for those pesky males.
Might be time to hook up to Severn Trent as doesn't seem much chance of rain for the foreseeable.
I was going to say that your John is used to dealing with old boilers but thought better of it lol!!!
