Toby's Terrible Card

"Quick mum, make a card for Toby." Who's Toby? For some reason I think Toby's about turns out he's 36. So all thoughts of Thomas the Tank Engine suddenly disappear from my mind. "What's he in to? Cars? Bikes?" I skim through all my folders of backing paper Mad About Cards have freedowns, BBQ's, Count Down (The TV Show) Spanners, beer glasses, little boats, sheep with hats, ducks. "He's not really into anything, just a card with happy birthday on it..." "But that's boring," I say "That's okay, just do simple."
I find some paper in my ScrapGirls folder, with happy birthday all over it~it wasn't the one I was looking for but never mind. Add a bit of wiggly cord. Punch out the words Happy Birthday and stick it on with 3D foam pad. "It's boring!" I say. "It needs some thing else, "OK" says Tom (Son-in-law) "How about a tiger?" "Oh, yeah~I can find a tiger" sez me, "No!" says Emma, (Daughter) "an elephant would be better."..."Okay." sez me.
You see, I can never quite 'get' sarcasm, it goes waaay over my head.."Or a cow..."... "An aardvark!"... "Or a yak, yes a yak!" ...It's at this point I get the point and Toby gets a tortoise on his card...sorry worse card let's quickly move on!!!
