"Cheers" - Ken's Birthday card


Caution could be problems later today.

Hi Everyone.

It's Saturday and it's Ken's birthday and I have made a great card for him. Something linked to the above caption.

I popped over to Sarah's blog during the week and she gave the nod about Imag-e-nation having a sale of Flippin men and women stamps. Now these are definitely NOT my usual style but I went to see anyway and just couldn't resist a bargain. These were too good to miss. Usually a set sells for £9.99 but they have the whole set of men or women on sale for £20.00. A bargain you say, but if you buy the whole set you get the other set completely free - just incredible. Don't know if they have any left but it would be worth a quick look to see.




So I decided to discard the card I had made for Ken earlier in the year and make him a new one. He loves bitter when he has a drink so I chose the 'Cheers' set, aren't they fun?



(He doesn't look like this I have to say!) I decided to make up the front and back of the image and use the back one on the inside of the card. I think Ken will like it. He'll certainly like the caption.




Promarkers used - 18 of them so I won't bore you by listing all their names.
DPs - blue one printed from Papercraft World CD others from my box of bits.
Music paper from a vocal score brought at a car boot.
Vintage paper - one of my downloads.
Buddie is a vintage bottle top also downloaded, and other embellishments from my collection including the TH ticket.

We are having a BBQ later with friends and neighbours, so I hope the weather holds out. It is an annual event and we have been known to stand under gazebos getting damp, but hey ho once the beer gets flowing I shouldn't think there will be a problem, only the drowsiness one.

Hope you have a fun day and weekend. See you tomorrow, I have two posts for DTs, so something else to look at.

Bye for now. Luv B xxxx
