Happy Birthday Mate

Hi There! Wow, the last few days have been a bit rough with my Little Princess having been quite unwell and leaving Wonderful Man and me with little sleep through the night. She has been to the GP three days in a row and is hopefully on the mend, but she has been in a lot of pain. She is a trooper though and thankfully she has some brighter moments. I just hope her pain stops soon. It is awful to watch her go through this and not be able to do much to help other than comfort her.

My Dad actually 'commissioned' me to make this card for his mate! He told me what he was after and I searched ebay for a stamp that fit what he had in mind. I was really trying to find an image of a man with a walking stick, but I am pretty happy with this one nonetheless. I am sure there is something out there and I hope to come across it sometime. You can probably gather by the card that my Dad's mate has a good sense of humour and the two of them are often heard giving each other a ribbing! I am happy too that I managed to find a way of getting flowers and a bit of glitz onto a card without it appearing feminine!
