Happy Birthday

Good morning all. We had a mixed old bag of weather yesterday, windy but dry and sunny in the morning with lots of rain showers late afternoon and early evening....goodness knows what we'll get today!

I had a day at home yesterday after realising eldest has to go to Edinburgh today to have some wisdom teeth out. As his appointment isn't until mid afternoon I thought it was a good opportunity to get him fitted out for a suit for his cousin's wedding in July....so a visit to M&S is on the cards...guess where some of my vouchers are going to go!!

A male card to share with you today, one I made a few weeks ago.


Decoupage image is Wellington Bear, Gun Metal embossing folder from Die'sire, die from Spellbinders, sentiment from Craftwork Cards, buttons from Papermania and charm from Meiflower. Binders twine from my stash.

And a photo showing the layers.
