For the man in your life at TioT's

The new challenge theme over at Try It on Tuesdays is.....

'For the Man in Your life.'

It could be a Birthday, Fathers Day, Retirement, New Baby Boy et.. etc.

Please pop over to see how we all interpreted the theme.

I made a  masculine card that could be suitable [I think] for a few occasions.

The background is embossed and layered onto a plain white card. The main image [ I think its a TH stamp, I never keep  the packaging] is on a lightly stamped background.

One of my sons had a cycling holiday planned for 2020 and because of the pandemic situation

it was  moved to this year,   it is on hold and will be for quite a time longer.

Another friend's son was going to have a year out and go travelling, also on hold.

I've heard of many other plans that have been  stopped over the past months.

Birthdays celebrated without friend or family close by,

this list could be very long

So I hope this card will appeal to many and that you know that one day we may be free to meet freely with each other and go out to explore again..

Thank you for calling in to see me today, your visit is always appreciated.

Stay safe.
