One for the boys

Another very busy day at the office yesterday and all afternoon as well. First I had taxi driving and then I also went to try to buy me a dress to wear for tomorrow's cocktail party, which unfortunately was unsuccessful. The only one that I really liked was about Eur200, so I didn't even try it on, in case I liked it a real lot. I didn't want to spend that much money on a dress, which I would probably wear only once!
So that means that I still don't know what to wear for tomorrow!!!

Anyway, I have another Christmas card today and this time it's my DT Card for the new challenge starting today at I ♥ Promarkers. The theme for this week is
so you can make anything you like, just as long as it is for the boys and coloured with Promarkers, Acquamarkers, Flexmarkers or Triamarkers.

I have of course decided to make me another Christmas card and used this gorgeous Forever Friends stamp that was a freebie in a magazine.

Kept my card very clean, and just added three gems, peel off sentiment and the gorgeous star that I recycled from an old Christmas card.
Even the background scene I have recycled. It was on the inside of an old Christmas card which I was going to chuck away. I really love how my card turned out today.
