Birthday card for my Olde Manne

The Mediaeval spelling in the title is a family joke, Hubby isn't quite as old as Chaucer!


This is Gus, I think he's my favourite Bugaboo character! The rather naughty sentiment came with him! He is coloured in Promarkers and *Flexmarkers with Glossy Accents on his specs. I used a Spellbinders 'Wonky Rectangle' to cut him out. Papers are snippets, the ribbon and buttons are from stash.

Here's an inside view, the buttons show up better here:


Simples!

Hubby's birthday is at the beginning of February and this year I've got tickets for us to see STEPHEN FRY as Malvolio in 'Twelfth Night'!! So exciting!

I'm entering several challenges:

Here Come the Boys have BINGO - I used the 4 corners: blue, buttons, image and patterned paper

Catch the Bug Challenge also has a Bingo card, I hope it's not too cheeky to enter two Bingo challenges! I used Sentiment, Bugaboo image and ribbon

Last but definitely not least is Pixie's Crafty Snippets week 56.

Phew! Well done if you've managed to reach the end!

Thanks for looking, and I hope your week is going well!

love Mags B x

Promarkers and *Flexmarkers *Egyptian Blue, *Sapphire, Sky Blue, Arctic Blue; Ice Grey 3, 2, 1; Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, *Rose Peach; *Rosewood, Auburn

LOVE this card Mags - so cheeky :))

Crumbs, I know Twelfth Night almost backwards having studied it for English Lit. GCE in the olden days - a great play to have on our reading list, much better than Henry Vth or such. Lucky you having those tickets - enjoy!

Hugs, Di xx

Oh my God, Mags! Hello! This card has MY Mister's name all over it, too!! I am going immediately to get this. The "old fart" saying in our household is a very common one; I can't believe I've never seen it as a sediment before! TY, TY, TY!!
