Men's cards are a pain!

Don't you just hate doing men's cards?! I have started to run out of ideas for them, they are so much harder than doing cards for us girlie's! It's Adrian's dad's birthday so I had to try to come up with something quick as I have already used all my male images on past cards for him. Debbie from Stampeezee came to the rescue with this stamp library stamp. Which was perfect for Mike as he is a real handy man! I was pushed for time though as work and life have been busy this past week, so here is what I came up with. I used a piece of note paper to make a mock list as Mike is always leaving to do lists everywhere! The image pulls forward to reveal the to do list, which reads 1) put your feet up, 2) open a beer, 3) put on a DVD (Mike's favourite past time is watching films) 4) relax!!

Happy Birthday Mike and thank you for all you do for us!
I also make some yummy lemon cake again as it went down a storm last time and I think it was even better this time!

Hopefully I'll be back with some girlie cards soon, a card just isn't a card without flowers, ribbon, buttons or lace and nice girlie images!

I'll have some blog candy up for grabs and will announce my follower of the month for January so check back soon!

Thanks for looking,
