Hi again

Today I'm going to show you Paul's birthday card which I mentioned yesterday. I spent ages faffing with this. I seemed to have so many conflicting ideas, and I couldn't get anything to come together, so in the end I put it all away and started from scratch. I loved this paper which is one in a pile of freebies kindly given to me by my wonderful crafty friend Tasha last year. The image is from Digi Stamp Boutique, and really sums up my darling hubby!!! He likes a drop of beer, loves to read his paper, and really enjoys a snooze at ANY time, lol. As you can see, what I came up with in the end was SO simple, that I couldn't believe I'd fretted so much, but I guess it was a case of I tried too hard, because I wanted to make it special.

Hope you have time to stop and let me know what you think.
