Real Men Do Housework

April's MFT Guest Designer Challenge was to create something masculine and metallic ;)
I decided to make Brian a little Honey Do List notebook :) I'm sure he'll be thrilled when I give it to him but first I need to make a list...lol
I stamped the Maid for WTG in Memento black on cream cardstock and coloured with copics. The chair and ottoman were paper pieced with dp. I had a sheet of this metallic foil from an old TE key ingredients package. It was perfect for this challenge! I used the SU! border punch on it. Some buttons, thread, screw brads, paper piercing and dimensionals finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
