Happy Birthday John

Happy Birthday John! No, I won't tell you how old he is, but dinosaurs didn't walk the earth when he was born! (and it might give away my age too!)
Okay, it's not a very romantic card to make for your husband but it is cute though, isn't it?! (I mean the monkey...ok, so's John too) A Dustin Pike already coloured PDF Decoupaged Monkey freebie available here.
If I remember rightly the big leaves background papers were from Dustin too.
All I did was print everything onto 250gsm Photo glossy inkjet paper, cut it out and fixed together using silicone glue, all except the pom-pom on his hat, where I used a tiny 3D foam pad.
For the backing paper I just cut off the white waste around the edges and folded it in half to make the card, printed it again on paper for the insert then added the little picture of the smaller completed monkey to the inside. The cake is also a freebie DP image. Found Here!
Today we're meant to be having a BBQ, but of course it's raining. John has a new shiny gas BBQ and a new awning that can only mean one thing! The Summer's over folks! I have a few challenges but will have to add them later as I'd better have a tidy up!!
Remember the my Help with links post??? Just have a look at how many links under the comments on Dustin's Post... there's even a few links from blogs that haven't blogged in years, but there's still no Spyder's Corner, and I've been over at least ten times. I will find that magic button one day!! Bye For Now!

  1. Happy Birthday John!

    Your card is lovely - such a cute image.

    Fingers crossed for your BBQ but I have to say, if it were anywhere near me I would have to be thinking of a plan B! It's chucking it down!
