As it is hubby's birthday today I thought I should make a card especially for him :-) Can you guess how old he is today ?? :-) My goodness the years are flying by ! He was only 23 when we first met !

Here is Gruffie, he has gone over the top of the hill and is hurtling down at speed ,,, haha ,,, poor Gruffie about to crash into a rusty old lampost :-) 

The lampost and street sign were printed and cut on the sillhouette, the lampost was inked with versamark and embossed with vintage photo distress powder, it does look rusty eh !

 I couldn't really colour the red roller in brown, but I picked earthy reds ,, E 04, E07, E09. 

Thanks for looking :-) Our lovely GD's and the DT have made some fabulous creations so hop on over to the HM&F Challenge to see them :-)
