Ooops its late

So buddies challenge is 1 day late due to the very hectic lives we are having at the moment lol. The theme was chosen by Marias son Callum which is blue ribbon. So I made a male card using a hobby house topper from when I won the challenge, i wrapped 2 sorts of ribbon round a piece of white card to create a background. 

I used a clearly besotted stamp for the sentiment, added 3 buttons and it was finished. Please do pop over to Marias blog to see what she created at
Hope everyone is having a great weekend, only just under 5 weeks until the wedding eeek so much to do. Take care everyone & thanks for looking xx
