Hand drawn cactus

Good morning, friends,  followers and fellow bloggers, I hope you are all well and the weather is being kind to you.  I have had a very busy few days, starting with having my 10 year old grandaughter stay with me at the weekend. She's like a little tornado but we had fun, crafting,  horse riding and cycling to our local coastal park. Yesterday was housework, dog walking 8 dogs and meeting a friend to hand back her dog who we'd been looking after for 4 plus weeks.
So today's card is one that I have made for a floral challenge over on Docrafts. The task was to make a feminine and masculine card and seeing as all my floral images etc. are very feminine, I decided to draw my own. This had another value to it as it encouraged my grandaughter to have a go at drawing too and she produced a beautiful drawing of my artificial flower arrangement, which unfortunately she took home 😔.

I scanned and printed my drawing,  as I didn't want to use the original and then mounted onto black card.
I then used a page from an old book purchased for 10p at a second hand book shop and inked the edges with black ink.
Newsprint Card Candi was added to 2 corners and Washi tape added to the top.

I do hope you like this card and it inspires you to make a masculine floral card. If you would like a copy of my drawing,  then please email me.
Hugs and best wishes.
