Natalie & Amy's 'For The Boys' Challenge

Good morning all how are you all? I hope you are all safe and not suffered any severe damage from the storm on Monday.

Wow it feels like forever since I last posted, in fact it has been a month and although I am still finding it hard to craft I have actually made a card don't faint on me lol. It is time for a new challenge at Natalie & Amy's and I thought to myself if I start really early I might be able to get a card done and yes it took awhile but I got there and it made me realise just how much I have missed crafting. I know I haven't left any comments lately due to my hands but I have by and looked at all your beautiful creations. I am currently awaiting an appointment to see a neurologist as my gp is not happy with my hand situation and also feels the hospital here need to know my story for future developments. I have also finally had an Occupational Therapy appointment and now waiting for them to come and assess my home to see what they can do with my bathroom as they couldn't offer any solutions at the outpatient appointment so all things are heading in the right direction.

Ok as I said it is time for a new challenge over at Natalie & Amy's and this month we are challenging you to 'For The Boys'. I used to hate making boys cards but with the great image's and perfect papers of late they are so much easier to make. 

For my card I used some of the Dovecraft Back To Basics II papers and teamed them with this Sassy Sheryl image. I cut my border with a Spellbinders Edgeabilites Die then my image, sentiment and tag layers were all cut on my Cameo. I added a little jute twine to my tag but have just noticed it has slipped from where I placed it lol. All links to items used are below.

Card Blank - 6" White Square N & A
Dimension Tape - Stick It 3d Foam Squares N & A 
Image, Tag & Sentiment Layers - Lori Whitlock 6 Bracket Layer #34961
