Tools and thanks

Hi Everyone my card today is for the
This is a GREAT challenge for 
those mens card that you may find tricky,
 I hope you'll pay a visit and play with us.

Lots of ideas on this but in the end I decided to go with a thank you for the fitters here. I'll even do a few the same!!! so they have one each. I hate batch making, I rarely do more than one card the same, but I like this card and I think they may appreciate it. I have a few days to do it before they are finished, so maybe one or two a day or more, we'll see.

pinboard & tool images - Sherwood Studio "In his garage" digital kit at Digichick
images were taken in to the Silhouette design area, 
duplicated for extra thickness, printed and cut with the Cameo
sentiment - drawn with Silhouette pens
Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens onto metal parts.
tools stapled onto "pinboard" to replicate holders?
black card - stash

here's a piccy of the dots, on the sticky Sil mat, cut from the pinboard
it's cut from 210gsms photo double sided paper

Well now, Faith...that's just absolutely fantastic! I love the pegboard and the way you made the staples look just like the tool hooks. It actually looks just like my husband's workshop! Great card, my friend! :o)

This is a perfect card for the DIYer! Definitely need to keep this idea on the back burner - love the peg board effect. Wish I could say that hubby kept his area tidy like this though!! LOL

Hi Faith
I have loved being a guest designer with your team this fortnight, and I wanted to personally thank you for all the inspiration you provide, to help our female brains come up with male card! You are an inspiration!

I love your card! What a great idea to make a few! Like you, I don't often repeat cards, but this one will suit your purposes beautifully!
