30th Birthday


My husband is 30 tomorrow - so I've been working on his card this morning.  I've already given it to him though as I didn't got an envelope big enough, plus he was milling around whilst I was cursing and cutting out the little boy and his car - I need to either get some decoupage scissors or get a new blade for my craft knife!

He really liked it and said that it reminded him of playing outrun in the arcade machines when he was a teenager ( Which is a very long time ago now!! ha ha!)


The image is called AJ - the race car driver and it's one of the images I chose from The Stamping Boutique as part of my prize from Tuesday Throwdown a week or so ago.  The image looks really flat on this photo, but I've done it in three layers.  I'm also loving Core-dinations card at the minute.

I always forget how hard it is to get really nice DP for male cards - there are literally thousands for the girls, so I did a little happy dance when I spotted this at the craft store!  It's lovely and so summery!

There are loads of challenges to enter with this card:

Plus have you seen my new badge on the sidebar - my pink Christmas card made top three at the Winter Wonderland Blog! I was a very happy bunny when I caught up with my blogs last night!

Thanks for stopping by
