Clare Curd male birthday card


A very early post today...for reasons that will become clear!

Made this birthday card for OH using my new Clare Curd Signature papers and stamps...there's such a great selection.

The papers have just been layered...no embellishments...nothing lovey dovey....he's not that sort of bloke.

Thought this card would be appropriate for Clare Curd's paper piecing challenge this week and for the Charisma Cardz 'guy' challenge.

The sentiments are very apt as he works away from home most of the week...and then spends the weekend doing stuff around the house and garden.

But not this weekend....we are off to London...he's a big Queen fan...and we've managed to get half price tickets for 'We Will Rock You' [which he'll love] and then Saturday are going to the Country Life Spring Fair at the Business Design Centre [which I'll love].Probably can't afford the prices of the lovely bits there...but hope to get lots of ideas....and there's always loads of delish yummies to 'taste' in the food hall.

Normal service resumed on Sunday.
