‘Man’ card & Big Birthdays
I’m posting this card because today its Steve’s Birthday. Whilst this isn’t his card- I’ll post that another time, I thought it was appropriate. It’s a big milestone Birthday- the one I’m not looking forward to either!
This is using those cogs again- you can do so much with this one stamp. I’ve just used lots of brads left over from different projects and computer generated the sentiment using the American Typewriter font ( my fave at the moment).
So far, his Birthday has been low- key and it’s going to stay that way. He’s not a ‘party’ man. He’d have died if I’d have thrown him a surprise ‘do’, so we tried to make it personal for him. He did get a lie-in, that is, until the kids could contain themselves no longer!- 9:00am is pretty respectable don’t you think?!
After a chilled breakfast and opening his presents we’re going for a walk.
For his presents we went down the ‘retro’ theme. We found lots of things that he’d had during his childhood– particularly certain sweets that have been re- released. Like Dib Dabs, Black Jacks, Refreshers, Fruit Salads and Poppets! Remember all those?! I made him some ‘Caramac’ biscuits ( digestives with melted Caramac on just like his Mum used to make!) and changed it up a bit with HobNobs as the base biscuit. We made a big frame with lots of photos of the kids through different ages and stages and I even managed a tiny one with me on!!
Thanks to Tesco Clubcard, he’s also got a flight in a Cessna airplane to look forward to.
Tonight I think it will be a movie and he wants to go out for a meal soon too. His Birthday, his way. And so he should- he really deserves a lovely day.
Be back soon, when I’ve cleared away all the wrapping paper! xx
