Super gorgeous weather here today .. .. and it inspired the theme for today's Monday's male card.
I have been looking forward to colouring up this image for a while:

Martha Stewart Edge Punch: Embossed Zig Zag
Ribbon from my crafty stash box
Must admit I wish Mr Heart was King of the BBQ .. .. .. I thought all men enjoyed firing up the BBQ and cooking outdoors. But not my hubby .. .. not sure why. Probably a mixture of having to take everything outside, cook in a fog of smoke, battle with the insect life and then clean up a well burnt BBQ grill at the end. But never mind .. . .. you can't have everything can you LOL!!
Over the weekend we took the London Kids to a local craft store (they enjoy crafting as much as I do). Sadly the store sent me an email on Friday to say they were closing down. Boo hoo! So sad when you see another physical craft outlet disappear.
I know we can buy lots of bargains on line but it isn't the same as having a wander around a "real - bricks and mortar" shop is it.
It did mean they were having a closing down sale though, so we went along to stock up on a few crafty essentials. Even the shop fittings will be going later so I will be having a wander back at a later stage to see what I can put to good use.
What they did have were some of those hanger plaque things that you hook on door handles. They had some decorated up to read "craft room". I saw Mr Heart looking at them and when he saw I had noticed him he said "That's a shame. They don't have enough. You would need one for every door in the house". Cheeky monkey him!! LOL!!
Anyway time to get cracking on another mission.
I'll catch you again tomorrow for Teeny, Tiny Tuesday.
Enjoy your day.
Love Jules xx
