Happy Birthday Ben

Hello everyone how are you all? Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I'm sorry there was nothing on my blog yesterday we had a complete family day so apart from answering a couple of emails I didnt use my lappy.
Payton walked the width of my conservatory last night more than 15 steps on her own, proud grnadma moment going on here :0) We were all clapping for her & everything she got so excited bless her lol.

Anyway I thought I would show you the card I made for Bens birthday, as most of you know he is an apprentice plumber............ ;0)
Isn't this image the soon as I saw it I brought it straight away its perfect for Ben, dont forget the plumber's bum lol (yep its not just builders lol)

The tag I made cut out the sentiment from the DP'S & attached it to a 'Trinket Pin', if you knew Ben you would understand why this sentiment is perfect.

The papers are the gorgeous Lost & Found 'Breeze', I love this pad really need to get another one.

The company Ben works for is a large housing company, one of the largest in the North East & on the side of all the work vans it says 'Making The Difference' I had to write it on the side of the image lol.

The fabulous image is from Just Inklined & is called 'DIY King' I coloured the image with copics & added Glossy Accents to the water to give it that realistic look lol.
I have to say I dont normally enjoy doing male cards but this I thoroughly enjoyed :0) Ben absolutely loved it, so much he wants put it in a frame lol.

Sorry about the poor lighting these were took over a week ago when my bulb had gone grrrrrr. I did make him one off Natalie & Jake as well but forgot to take photo's lol.

Anyway I'm off to come visit you all now before I get back to my DT work. Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by it means the world to me.
Tatty bye mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
