Top Secret!!!

Next Tuesday is my partner's birthday. Surprisingly, instead of leaving it to the last minute, I set about creating his birthday card last night! The card I created isn't really a birthday card as such, but I know he'll appreciate it as it is personalised and reflects his favourite hobby. Here it is (ETA - this card was picked up for pub as I was finishing up writing this post, so please enjoy my out for publication image instead!!! LOL!);


















100% Surfer Style Birthday Card
Cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper - Prima, Pink Paislee, My Mind's Eye, Rub-ons - My Mind's Eye, Twine - craft supply, Machine thread - craft supply.

Masculine cards can sometimes be tricky to create, but I find that simple is best, and incorporating the recipient's hobby or other interests like favourite colours, etc, is a sure fire way to ensure that they love their card!

Now I've just got to hide his card and keep it top secret til next week!!!

Completely changing the topic... I woke this morning from a glorious sleep in to find my daughter had cut all the beautiful curly blonde hair from the right side of her head!!! It is now no more than 10cm long, whereas the other side is past her shoulders. She claims she was practising cutting her hair!!! Oh my... what a disaster!!! But I guess every kid has to do it at some stage, right?! Please tell me I'm not the only mother who regrets having slept in!!!

Back again soon, thanks for visiting!
