Oh I'm getting old...

Maybe one day I will look back and laugh but.....

The other day I was asked to make a 16th birthday card which had Drake on it. No, I've no clue who he is either, but I figured a duck wasn't going to feature on the card.

So I Googled some images, found one and printed it off and created this card. All well? Well, no. After the card had been handed over I emailed a photo of it to my friend Lorraine and said, "here's the Usher card" (no, I have no clue who he is either)... she emailed me back and said "you said it was Drake"......

The air was blue can I tell you! I text in a panic but was assured the birthday girl liked Usher too. I have seen a photo of her holding the card and she did look very happy (although they did actually manage to get a photo of Drake and put it on the card) 

Now, where did I get Usher from?!? Answers on a postcard please!

Oh dear! I haven't a clue who Drake is either!
It'a a fabulous card anyway Susan, I love the design with that musical paper.

Who? Haven't got a Scoobie who Drake is, although I would probably have guessed at him being a relative of Donald or Daffy. I've heard of Usher, but wouldn't recognise him if I fell over him. I fell over Ronnie Corbett once, but that's another story. Great card tho'! xx

Thought it was just me! Once made a very girlie card with the name Breck on it. Was reading a book at the time and the heroine had the same name. How was I to know. His mother was not amused.
Love the card though

So funny, I love the card as much as the story! Thanks for joining in with Craft Your Passion this week! :)

Abi said...

Gotta say I laughed so much at this episode!!! I wouldn't tell one from the other either, I think we should stick to the original meanings of both words, Drakes belong in a pond & ushers belong at a wedding. Then we all know where we stand (or if we don't we can be directed by an Usher lol!) Hee hee xx
