Happy Birthday Tom!

It's son in laws birthday today...one with an 0...no, that's not right, that'll make him ten...I meant it's four with an 0. So here's the card I made.
Hope he likes it. Cogs because? Well he has a racing bike, that has cogs. The little camera charm is because he loves taking pictures and has one of those super cameras. The clocks on the backing paper... ? The hands look like arrows... he's in with the local Archery Club...Hmmm, oh yes, he has to keep time (like we all do....I never have enough) And Chickens? They're excising chickens and they're all keeping fit! Up...down...Up... Tom's a Personal Trainer. He has weights and stuff...although I've not seen a skipping rope... The stamped image is by Penny Black of course. I still have no printer....it eats paper so I couldn't use a digi and my only black ink pad is bone dry, so I was so-so glad to find this image already stamped out, ready to use, it's just perfect! The gold and bronze card has been embossed with a clock embossing folder and a cog embossing folder. I've also added screw brads. Love them.
Inside the card looks like this. It says Keep Your Pecker Up... and Down and Up.... The font I used is called Violety Crumble. Google the name. It's a freebie on most sites.
 It's one of those 'cut the front panel of the larger card in half, turn it the other way and then sick a smaller card on the bit that was the inside' cards. (What are they called?) I like doing these. I also love the cogs, especially for men's cards.

I've added a strip of acetate to the front of the smaller card with Happy Birthday fixed to it. I was going to leave it off, but it does stop the card from falling over. Hope you had a fabulous Birthday Tom!
Later I hope to add this to a few ....
