Happy Birthday...

Happy Birthday Tuesday,

Now I don't usually do a lot of Birthday cards however this is one that I make every year as it is for Mr Next Doors father and I can't forget the date as we share a birthday!  So todays card was made specifically for Bruce but I also share it as my birthday card (don't ask Im not telling how old either of us are!)

This is a spinner card that I have been playing with where the central element can spin or turn, I have made the original one for the shows on C&C next week so if there is time I will demo how to make it if not then I will detail on here how to make the card.

As it is my Birthday I am sure you will all forgive me for just pictures and ingredients list!

    First of all a 'Very Happy Birthday' to you and Mr ND's father from a fell Libran mine is on Thurasday. Have a wonderful day.
    I adore today's card and my Uncle will be 70 in the New Year so this would be a great idea for him as I am hopeless with man cards. I love it!

  16. best wishes! Outstanding male card John.

  17. Happy birthday John, hope you have a lovely day what ever you are doing. Love today's card, and when I looked at it I thought it would be so fitting for a card and I have been asked to make for someone who will be 70 in December, If you don't mind I will do my take on this because I think it's gorgeous. Have a good day, Brenda

  18. Good afternoon John,
    Today is also my hubby's birthday so a very happy birthday to you and Mr. Next Doors father as well. What a nice birthday card for a man, not too girlie looking because i do know some men love flowers as well so what a lovely compromise. Have a lovely day,
