Luca... makes an appearance

YES Lil Victorian Luca is at last showing himself
 on my blog
Poor chappie, has waited ages to appear.
But I don't think you will be disappointed
He is oh so Victorian
Isn't he lovely
I have had him since the release
But this is the first time I have used him
Over at
they would like a masculine card
So that is what I have made.
OOO last week I was in the top three
with my card here , Thank you for choosing me x
Anyway onto the card
I have made an easel card
the papers I have used are from
Summer Driggs - Boy oh Boy set
which I printed off this morning
and he is coloured with pencils
here it is
As you can see I have also made a calender
which acts as the stopper !!
probably not the correct word
I thought this would be nice to have on a work desk
and will hopefully last all year.
The ribbon on the base is woven
I got the idea from Meiflower
She does it for a wreath card
but I decided to leave it straight
A better picture of the ribbon and also the calendar
I added some square gems
Which I bought this morning from the Chinese shop
More on that later !!

So there you go..
My entry for the latest challenge
I am also going to enter him into
I have squares, circles, oblongs,
Thanks for stopping by 
and have a brilliant weekend xxx

He looks super Claire and great idea making it dual purpose.

I think some of the problems with my PC are to do with a recent Windows update - things are getting sorted...slowly!
