I'm on a roll with cards for men and boys now. Last week I had to do a 40th birthday card for a male friend of ours. He is very into ships, and we'd bought him a book on cruise liners for his birthday, so I decided to stick with that as a theme. I wasn't entirely happy with the card, as I thought the finished result was a bit 'young' for a man, but I would definitely make one again for one of my grandsons, as the concept is quite clever. Here it is:
I wrapped his present just in plain brown parcel paper, but I'd stamped all over it with boats, anchors, seagulls and lifebelts, which looked really good, but that's what inspired me to make this gift tag, which I really do like:
Well I'm not very well at the moment, too ill to go outside, but not too ill to sit indoors and make cards, how handy is that?! Hope you're all having a better day.
