Handy Man!!

Ok ,I have a little thing to point out before I go on......this digi image of a drill and tape measure is actually a drawing of my own tools which I work with every day but I've added them to the "male" section of my gallery because I know it's usually men who use them!! I have coloured them in gold but strictly speaking the drill is a Makita and teal /red. You can see I'm quite attached to my tools lol!
On to the card,  I just had to use this "metal grid" Cuttlebug embossing folder and added two little orange brads  to the corners. Big son was in a helpful mood and kindly made me a computer generated  measuring tape which I printed onto ribbed cardstock to make it more realistic looking. Sticking to the measurement/number theme,I also uased a sheet of numerical paper from the DCWV Black and White set.
Hope you like it and the details were not too boring!
