It's Wednesday again!!

Phew! it soon comes round.



I'm off to Mum's today. (I always go on Wednesdays).







The best part of today though, is that it's my eldest son's birthday. He's 37 today!!!!



I agonised over his card as I HATE doing men's cards.



What IS it about them that drives us to distraction??



The cards not the men!!!!LOL







Well I got this gorgeous card wallet from Ikemo on Do Crafts
filled with lovely images and it inspired me!!



















Thank you SO much Ikki for the lovely wallet and the images,

(yours are on the way)!







So here is the card-cum-present I made for my son.


There will be money in the first pocket (of course).

















I'm quite pleased with it

and shall probably do this for my other sons too now.

In fact...everyone!! LOL





HAPPY BIRTHDAY SON!!!

Well done Viv - I know we both struggle with mens cards and this one just fits the bill perfect!

The giftcard that Ikki did for you is absolutely gorgeous and i'm sure we've got some of that card too!
