I do have trouble with male cards - however, this sketch is on the Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge blog and I really liked it so thought I would use it for his card. Then I found the stamp and remembered that he spent a lot of time on his uncle's farm when he was very young. Apparently his uncle taught him to drive his tractor when he was only 6 - for any H&S peeps out there, yes we all know this was naughty but it was a few years ago now - lol! I just thought this would remind him of when he was a young boy and how much fun he had then. Not as much fun as he has now of course!!!!! Perhaps putting the 65 on was a tad wicked, but it made him laugh and he then thought I had polished off two bottles of beer to get the tops - as if! I have a bag of them in my stash -naturally.
Now for the rest of the card, the button and hessian tied the card in with the tags and also gave it a little more texture - as did the crushed glass glitter. Anyway he loved it and was chuffed to bits with it all. I even took him a cup of tea in bed, something he usually brings me - before you think blimey she's spoilt (lol), I do have trouble in the mornings - until I have been up for a while -because I am not too steady on my feet, plus my back is worse then (I'm sticking to that one). He did wonder why the tide was out (not sure if you know what I mean here, but it's something we say when a cup of tea isn't full to the brim) so I said it was either that or it would have been slopped on each of our 13 stairs, meaning he wouldn't get a full cup either way!
For information, I had decorated the inside with the star paper and a star circle but I had written something mushy on it so hubby decided to keep it to himself - bless.
