happy birthday ian

 hi world

I never did get my grungy monday piece done, well maybe next week . . .  ohh!  thats tomorrow.
Anyway I have had too much other stuff to do including this card for my daughter's future father- in- law.
 He has just turned 60 and a big Cricket fan. The stamp is  from Papermana . . a set with lots of men's sporty stuff!, the papers are from Basic Grey.
The greeting continues with the cricket theme and I used a Tim Holtz die cut alphabet, so is the sign.
The backing paper has been embossed in a brick wall texture fade again from Lord Tim.
  The brads on the sign are immitation screws.... You might have guessed, Ian is a carpenter/ builder, so it all tied in quite well.
There is just a little hint about time and age with the clock stamps and embellishment  which was stamped and embossed with UTEE.


  1. Love those screw brads, very clever ; bet he;ll lvoe the card. I just read your comment on my blog about working in C&H in Winchester - good grief, Lunch Lady Jan and I spent at least an hour in there on Tuesday - she bought a shed load of fabric, I checked out the shoe sale and the craft section (of course) for ages - would we have seen you and not known each other?!!!

  2. I agree, love the screws. Who knew we had Julia Dunnit in our store, wow!

  3. Always find it difficult to do cards for men, but you cracked it with this one!


I'd love to know you have popped by so please leave a comment, they are much appreciated.
