For BIL


Remember the Male card I made that appealed to my sense of humour and not Hubby's well this is the card I made instead, hopefully BIL doesn't check out my blog its not his birthday till next week.

I've used Mo's image of King for the Day and I paper pieced the chair to match the main mat. I also made it very CAS by only using the Paper Smooches Happy Birthday, I have another one slightly larger but I searched everywhere for it but it turned up after I had stuck the other on the card.

I think the numbers could be Simon Says Stamps but on the other hand I found them in my number box. I haven't separated the number dies so when I cut out a number I cut all of them and keep them in a pot, the same with alphabet dies.

I have everything crossed well I would if I could, to get in to my craftroom and to be able to actual take some photos of a couple of DT cards that are actually straight and not fuzzy.

This is brilliant Debby and perfect for BIL's milestone birthday. I love the way you have matched the chair with the background and then the blue sentiment is echoed in the matting layer. Great colouring too. x

Yes, I remember it well.
But this is also a fab image and not everyone gets my sense of humour either but a great job of keeping the peace.
