Picture the scene. DH comes in from work with: "It's P's 40th birthday on Monday". Well, it's Thursday evening, so I have plenty of time. Then the penny drops ...... DH has a semi-regular Friday evening with our friends P & S at their home and this Friday is going to be one of them. So what he actually means is that he needs to take the card with him when he goes on Friday ....... I actually only have the remainder of Thursday evening, after dinner, to complete the card. Eek!
But all is not lost - I have a box full of semi-prepped card bases and there must be one I can finish off as a masculine 40th birthday!
And here it is :-) I had actually almost finished it previously, but was stuck on the final extra little topper. Turns out that a nice 40 is just the thing it needed! The papers are from a MME 6" paper pad and the lace edge border is a Dienamics die. The numbers are Thickers. I think it works as a male card even with a ribbon on :-)
And the moral of the tale ..... Be Prepared! LOL.
