Hope you are all well. I am getting quite excited now as only three more days at work for me this week. On Friday I am heading to the NEC with my Mum. We are spending Friday and Saturday at the NEC and on Saturday evening we are going to my Sister's for the night as she only lives about an hour from Birmingham. I will then be heading home on Sunday.
My apologies if I don't get round to do a lot of commenting this week. At the moment I am trying to get ahead of myself before the weekend.
Anyway, a quick birthday card to share with you tonight that I was asked to make. I was told that the recipient of the card was a Man Utd fan and a plumber. I wasn't really sure how I was going to combine the two so in the end I decided to concentrate on the plumbing but include the colour red to represent Man Utd.
Here is what I came up with.
I trawled the internet and downloaded this image of a plumber to make the topper. The backing paper is from Papermania. I used one of my stencils to emboss some silver mirror card to go across the centre of the card. I added some red ribbon and some card candi that I shaped to look like screws. While going through my stash I also found a little spanner (well, I think it is a spanner) which finished the card nicely.
Thankfully, the person who requested it was delighted with it. Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
