Happy Birthday Tom

We're running out of idea's for things for Tom to do on his birthday. We've sent him to a racing track one year, that was fun, so he could zoom round and round with other like-mined people at a ninety miles an hour! Even John had ago!! (although he didn't drive, an 'expert' took him round!! Doing 120mph around a race track is completely different to going down the M1...not that I've actually done that...and not that any one has, cos of course it's against the law, so there) When he came back John muttered something about wearing the wrong coloured trousers!
Last year we send Tom canoing.
This year we couldn't think, then John had an idea and I made the card... (last night, talk about last minute!!) and knowing that he'd be here first thing this morning as Emma (our daughter ) needed her brakes changing on her Mini, and seeing it's John's day off, that's what he's doing now. There he is...sitting on a mat in the drive! Unfortunately the back brakes are so tightly fixed in, even with the right tool, John couldn't get them off

Here's the card. Can you guess where we were going to send him??? Yes... For an Archery, lessen. I guess the green tights gave it away.
But no, a new surprise plan is being thought up as I type, as an old injury,(which he actually did years ago doing just that. (Playing Robin Hood no doubt) means he can't take up the challenge.

So, we'll have to come up with a new one!! Which is just as well, as I missed a word off the front of the card and it's given me a chance to change that .
Meanwhile, luckily plan B is still in place... a cook book and a meal out tonight! Tom does like his food!! And plan C??? We've just got to check we can get the tickets, but he's gonna love this, but can't tell you here, because he might read this!!

I used Dustin Pike's 'Squirrel' with he's nuts, which was already coloured. The little paper brads were from Shelly and K.T. Thank you!! The wording was done on my computer. The font is called Scooby Doo.
The little 'speech bubble' was also done on the computer and can be found by clicking the drawing button.
