HE'S H-A-P-P-Y!!!

Hi there  blog friends - it's me here still on me jollies!  This card makes me laugh 'cos it looks quite miserable.  A few months ago a friend from work asked if I had a card that he could buy for a friend.  Graham took several in for him to choose from and, as they lay on the desk, some of the other peeps asked if they could also buy them.  Must admit I was chuffed to bits!  One of the girls bought my cheery little bumblebee girl and when she showed it her boss he said he thought it was too twee!  She told him he was always too serious and hubby (bless him) said "We can do serious!"  Coo don't you just lurve the Royal 'we'!   Anyway 'the boss' birthday is next month so I've made a miserable card for him.

My friend sent me an image to colour - not sure where she bought it from - but I thought I would use 47 shades of grey plus a neon yellow, neon orange and red (for the tie).  I do remember that some of these papers are from First Edition but everything else is in my little book back in the UK.

I have given him a happy little song to sing!  I hope you like it - just a little - 'cos it did make me smile!    I would again like to thank you for stopping by and  if you have the time to leave a comment then you are a star indeed.  I am going back to the UK on Friday so I will be catching up with you asap.

Big hugs to you all.
