Happy Birthday John

Hi everyone! We're back from the depths of Cornwall, sheep, Pasties, caravans, tents, cow pats and scrumpy...oh yes...and Pixies. Mustn't forget the Pixies. It's a little known fact that Cornish Pasties, are in fact made from Pixies.. .but we won't go there now...I have another little treat for you coming up very soon, if not sooner, some pics from Devon and Cornwall and a video, of me and yours truley making our way to the pub in Polperro. But for now I thought I'd just post John's Birthday card. What d'think? It's one of them 'Flippin' Men' cards. I drew the background myself, it's supposed to be our garden. I coloured it in using Whisper pens...and if you stay tuned, I'll put in a link at the bottom of this post to John actually cooking something yummy in our garden. 'Fraid I wouldn't let him wear his pinny though, as it's ummm...(she whispers) Michelangelo's David... yes well, less said, I think! What? You want a link to that!? Oh okay then..
I made a bit of a booby on this card, can you see? I used my Xyron 510 with permanent adhesive and of course once I started sticking down the back it didn't line up with the front. Any other glue would've been fine...still I don't think it looks too bad. I've added Emma's card to her dad down at the bottom, cute little monkey! Anyway, it's nice to be back!! Can't wait to pop over and see what you've all been doing!! But before I go, I want to welcome two new followers to Spyder's Corner. First Jilleebee! Hi Jilleebee, who's hiding out of sight with no picture. (Thinking I wouldn't spot you, I bet!) How are you getting on with those Inchies!!? Jilleebee found me in my Photobucket. Hurry up and build your blog and I'll put a link in, I wanna to see those Inchies!! Also, a big (((wave)) to Tanja. Pop over and see some lovely cards,~ I like the Dustin Pike's Monkey~ over on Tanja's Bastelwelt
Back later with pic's from Cornwall...and the video link...I can tell you can't wait!
Okay, here it is....John's cookery lesson, now you'll see why I made the card I did! (I think he thinks he's Jamie Oliver!!) In the Kitchen Part 1 and in the Garden part 2 In the Garden part 3...don't laugh!
