Happy Birthday James

A member of my choir asked for a card for his son. He gave me a great list of possible things to include on it and I managed to get several in!
These are his name and age this birthday, a book, a cat and the colours of the football team he supports. I didn't think that was too bad going!
In order to include a book I used a digi image from Fred She Said and masked out the apple which was sitting on top of it, before printing it out. I then stamped the Penny Black Pussy cat to appear as though he was sitting on the book. I think it worked out quite well. The paper is from Cuddly Buddly and the sentiment was generated on the computer and mounted on a Spellbinder tag.
We went to our club at the Solent Hotel last night for a South African Wine Dinner with our neighbours. The food was superb and the wine simply delicious... I am feeling a little jaded now however, and we have a concert to sing this evening with our choir, I might just get my head down for 40 winks!

  8. respect to you for getting all those things into one card! He should be thrilled.

    My favourite wine is from South Africa - I like Columbards or Chardonnays from this region - and Australia. Hope you weren't hungoever, i mean 'jaded' for too long!!! LOL.

    Hope the concert goes well.
