Card for our Son-in-Laws birthday

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you had a good weekend. We have been involved with delivering my car to Andover so that our daughter can use it while her husband (our son-in-law) is recovering from his operation and can't drive. On Sunday we managed to catch up with some of the Christmas jobs that need doing and we had Christmas choir practice.

Today is our son-in-law's birthday and tomorrow he goes into hospital to have his gall bladder removed. That was what was causing all the pain last week. He is on a very restricted diet so I don't think there will be much celebrating today. He will have to save that until after.

The background is made from Brusho and Pixie Powders soaked kitchen roll. It is what I use to mop up you leave it to dry then the two layers are separated and glued to some card. I used a Decoupage glue it seems to suit this well. I got the idea from John Lockwood and I love it as I used to hate throwing away all the inky colour. 

They have a hamster so this cute little image from an old card was ideal. 

This is my ever trusty Creative Expressions die. The bird came from their window box set. 

This tree came from the window box set as well. There was a space that it filled nicely. 

I hope he opens his card before he sees it on Social Media. Oh well it can't be helped. 

Enjoy your day.

Happy Crafting.
