Happy birthday to Andy!

Unfortunately the birthday boy had to go to work today but being the kind soul that he is he told me to keep the day off and do something for me and to ignore the housework! Well, an invitation like that doesn't come along every day so I had to do what the birthday boy instructed. I mean, I usually ignore the housework I just don't normally have permission to do it ;) Just been to Frankie and Benny's for dinner with the kids which was lovely but I'm stuffed now. For years Andy has been asking for a set of golf clubs but as he's only played a handful of times in the last few years I never saw any point. Anyway, this year he's been out a bit more often with his friends from work so I relented! They were in a large box so I'm sure you can appreciate that I didn't wrap them, instead I made this (rather large) gift tag/card thing!! Used the Kenny K digi image which I downloaded earlier. Unfortunately I made a mistake. I coloured both hands as if he was wearing gloves. And he wouldn't be. He'd only be wearing a glove on one hand..... oops. Andy never noticed though until I stupidly pointed it out. D'oh.

Very light colour you used and that is one of the reason it looks old card. You prof that you can make beautiful card with the less things. Ordering is perfect.
