Special Uncle 30th


Here's a simple card I've made for an order.  I've used the Cricut to cut the stars and numbers (all from Plantin Schoolbook cart I think) and embossed them using the 'swiss dots' folder (numbers) and 'spots & dots' folder (star).  The papers are Papermania, cardstock is Papermill, ribbon & buttons from stash.  Used the MS zig zag punch for the border and the sentiment ticket was from here.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
My head's spinning at the moment... the school holidays are a little wearing!  I love my boys, and they love each other, but OMG they wind each other up when they're together all day!  We went out to see the lovely baby Jessica today, and they weren't too bad while we were there, but this afternoon... agh!  Also, when we got back I realised that hubby dear hadn't quite shut the freezer door last night, and everything in there has defrosted... double AGH!!!  Still, it's guilt tripped him into a takeaway tonight ;o)
