Birthday Boy....

The house is now very quiet with no sound of children's laughter and all the grandchildren have delivered home safely....time to recharge my batteries now!

I think I am like a lot of people and find it difficult to do mens cards but thought this image from Delicious Doodles made a good card for a Son....
I added the sentiment before printing off the image..

The Zebra backing paper I've had for a very long time and if my memory serves me right it came from Lidl's... just added a piece of embossed card along the centre , punched out two strips using SU Window punch and added a couple of brads....
