Happy Birthday Wellington

Well I am now fed up with the snow.  It was okay over the weekend when I didn't have to go anywhere but a totally different story when work is calling.  An hour and a half to drive what is normally a 20 minute journey to work.  Hopefully things will improve tomorrow as we have had no more snow here today.  My daughter has caused me a bit of a worry as this is her first bad batch of snow since she passed her driving test.  But she has coped really well and it doesn't appear to have knocked her confidence any or made her nervous.  Oh the joys of being a Mum lol.

I have a male card to share with you today.  It is my brother-in-laws birthday at the end of February and this card is for my daughters to give to him.


I recently purchased these lovely toppers and papers.  They are the Wellington range from Docrafts.  They are just perfect for male cards.  I did a lot of distressing and added some twine and buttons as embellishments.  This image is just perfect for my BIL as he does like a good glass of wine.  A nice vintage feel to it too.

Thanks for popping by and welcome to my new followers too.  Your support and encouragement are much appreciated.

I know what you mean mags,s about the snow being lovely when you can see it through the window but having to live normal day to day with it is a right pain lol. Today is the first day back to normal for me, as the boys school as been shut since Wednesday. Glad your daughter coping well with it and I hope you journey to work doesn't take too long today.

Your card is gorgeous, in have admired this range for some time and have finally ordered some of the papers, wish I had ordered the toppers now too after seeing your card.

Love the distressing and those button finish it off beautifully.
Have a good day
Hugs Kelly

Lovely card Mags. I know what you mean about the snow. It looks lovely when it's all fresh, crisp and white but not when you've to be out in it. Been driving since '96 and even I don't like driving in it so big up for your daughter for being so brave! xx
