Good afternoon fellow bloggers! Today I'm posting a card for our next challenge on the OSAAT blog. This fortnight the theme is Anything Goes - for a Man!!! I don't often start out with an idea in my head but I did with this one - I had a vision of an old map in shades of brown with some 'marine' type die cuts surrounding the image. Obviously it doesn't pay for me to get any bright ideas before hand 'cos I end up with a totally different card!
I thought this could be a card for someone going on an imaginary 'gap year'. I say imaginary 'cos I don't know anyone who is intending to do this! Mind you it would be nice.

We would love to see your creations this fortnight - male cards are (allegedly) quite challenging to do, so the more you make the more practised you'll become! We are offering the following prize this month - not to be sneezed at eh???
I'll be off now, people to see, places to be .. oh and cards to make!!! Lots of huge hugs to you, together with a cuddle if you need one!
