male 50 th birthday cards....






Well I don't usually mind making male birthday cards, but this really got me stumped. I had a telephone call on the weekend from a lovely lady who always asks me to make cards for her. This time she wanted a couple for her son, who's going to be 50. She gave me no brief, just said 'oh it's ok, you do whatever comes to mind'...ggrrrrrr, eeeek, helppppp,...pmsl.




So this is what came to mind. The Magnolia images was kindly given to me by Kerry, many thanks again Kerry. The tie image is from a set of wooden stamps from QVC which I've stamped twice and decoupaged to give it the 3d effect, both sentiments were printed on my pc, other bits 'n' bobs from my stash.
