A card for Mr Tickle

Evening Everyone,
And a very late one for me it is going to be. I am still sitting in the pub, nursing my diet coke and waiting for my lift home!!
I did tell you that this was a very useful background stamp for a man's card.
This time I have stamped and embossed it (JGS303 Tree Names) in black and then sponged Old Paper, Frayed Burlap and Faded Jeans Distress Ink all over it.
The leaf stamp is from a Stampendous clear set SSC022 Fall Foliage, and the sentiment is from a Woodware set FRCL207 Ribbon Banners.
 I have done some extra stamping with plain water as well as the Distress inks on the sponged panel.
Of course some Card Candi finished it off rather nicely.
I don't usually spend time in the pub, but I finally managed to hand deliver the card to Andy (the Mr Tickle of the title) who is my daughter's boyfriend, and as she has been working I stopped for dinner and a drink and then they will drop me home once last orders have been called.
Much nicer than getting the bus in this cold weather I think you will agree, so I will put up with the very late night.
I have not been totally inactive as I have taken my laptop with me, but sadly no crafty playtime for me today.
Still tomorrow is another day as they say.
Nearly home time.
