Happy Birthday Tom!

It's Tom's birthday today. (Son In Law) no, I won't tell you how old his is, coz that makes me feel old!! But I know he's at home watching sport on the telly while Emma (daughter) is away on a hen weekend... say no more. Haven't seen Tom for weeks, he's off most weekends travelling all over the place playing in Archery Tournaments. He's really very good, might even make the finals!
Here's Tom's card. He loves his archery and bears, so hence the Digi bear with arrows!
The Little Bear Digi, is called Archie The Archer. Couldn't call him Tom as I already have a Troll called Tom... which came about because Tom wanted one for his Sister in law... another long story. I've 3D-ed his little arm, just to make it pop a bit.
The paper's are mine too... wanted something for my latest DT card, so made them to match the ink I'd used. That'll be here later, I hope! (Mr Blogger is busy today! All on timer) Look out for the sneak Peek, I've hidden a freebie in it! and I'll put the papers up as freebies tomorrow. The digi was coloured on the computer using PaintNet, another freebie you can download, just google the name. The arrows were done on my computer too, in Word.
I've used two freebie fonts. PC Sunny Day, which I couldn't find last time I used it. (Perhaps it came with my laptop) and Delrium which actually has backward letters..."Tom" types out normally because the letters are the same whatever (There's a name for that, I'm sure)
I used an XCut boarder punch to make that pattern down the edge of the card. I'd cut a slice off and added acetate.
Inside there's a space to add a tag, or some money... but that's only there for the picture! (Tom gets a surprise every year... and it's such a surprise, even I don't know what it is yet! )
The little buttons are tiny brads by Woodware. That's it! I do have challenges, but as I'm not here, I'll link them later. Bye for now!!
I hope this counts!
