Hello lovely blogsters out there - well yesterday was the maestro's birthday and I bought this stamp set way back in March/April time - for once I was prepared!!! As some of you will realise this looks very like him (hair wise or lack of I mean) although he does have a few 'wisps' on top, but no 'comb-over!! We also have a couple of reclining chairs and he has one or four remotes! I would have cut the bag of crisps out and replaced it with an F1 magazine cover but couldn't find one! Shame - but, having said that, he would never fall asleep during an F1 race!!!
I was really pleased yesterday 'cos there he was in his red T shirt and blue trackies. Great minds and all that ..........
This is a little verse from Jon Bratton's site Verses4Cards - he has some lovely free little verses for us to use. I've put a link to his site HERE. There are funny ones, serious ones - in fact something for every occasion, nip over for a gander. I typed out the verse and the font is one of those that looks slightly distressed and smudgy - lol.In case you are wondering, this did make him laugh! He knows I don't meeean it!!! By the way have you spotted the deliberate mistake??? I have forgotten to put Happy Birthday on the front - I am such a plonker! I did confess to the maestro and he said "It doesn't matter because I know what it's for!" Bless him.
I lurve these papers and thought they would look good on a male card. The zig-zag one is by Sheena Douglass from her 'A Little Bit Oriental' paper pad. The dotty paper is from Graphic 45 'Le Cirque Collection' - I am very very fussy where I use my G45 papers so you see he is definitely 'speshul' LOL!!

I didn't have a present for him yesterday but he says he needs a new 'puter so I will be giving him some money for that - when he decides which one he wants!!! Mind you - I did leave a little present for him upstairs - just before I went to bed I found an 8 legged beasty in the bath so I left it for him to remove - rapidly!!!!!
Blossom had her first visit to the V-E-T on Monday - bless her she was really good. She had a multi-injection and a general health check , she has to go back in three weeks for the second injection and will go for her operation (spaying) afterwards. She has had a lot of male attention, I do know of one cat Donny, who has had carnal knowledge (dirty little beggar) but, fortunately, no offspring. I am a little mystified but the vet said he wouldn't know if she was 'in tact' until they checked her out. Whilst she is under the anaesthetic she will be chipped (thought I would save her this pain for the time being). I put some anti-flea juice on her neck as soon as she was allowed in the house and the vet has given me some more, which has a wormer in it, to put on in two to three weeks' time. She is costing a bomb - oh don't think I've mentioned where she stretched herself up the wallpaper on the landing and left some lurvely scratch marks under the dado rail! Fortunately we had one short piece of paper left and the maestro has managed to replace the scratched bit!
Thank you for popping over to my site and for checking out my blog wafflings. I hope you like my humorous card for my bloomin' lubbly hubbly! I have made a couple of cards but still haven't posted all of them just yet. I've slapped my wrist and will get 'a round tuit' just as soon as I can.
I do hope you are all keeping well and are coping with the weather, it was absolutely puthering down this morning and Blossom is on her usual cushion on my desk! She does distract me 'cos I keep stroking her and playing with her paws, ears and chin. This is helping with her feisty attitude so I don't feel as if I am time-wasting, I am in-house training! That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
Before I go orf on my Blossom Fest again I am off - lots of love and hugs to all my friends and fellow blogsters out there.
