Happy Birthday Al

Good morning folks.
Another Tuesday morning, my aren't the days passing quickly, October nearly over!
Anyway it also means a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz. This week I'm choosing the theme and I want to see your projects that feature -


So we want to see any project for a male that is to do with numbers, as simple as that!
It could be for a child's birthday, an older gent's birthday, anniversary or even Dec 25th.
Here is my card.

I made this as you can see for my OH's birthday. He's now into the next decade but still likes to play with his toys, hence the blue tractor!
I love this little tractor stamp from Molly Bloom, it appears that Clare Rowland has stopped designing her own stamps, as I've seen nothing new for over a year. :( .
Anyways this little chap on his tractor was stamped masked then coloured with Copics to match the new tractor that has been a godsend as the little grey Fergie is not up to it these days, it's older than the OH.
The 'new' one allows him to move soil and logs around more easily, he even bought a log splitter that goes on the back and works off the hydraulics, so no more log splitting by hand.
The '60' was outlined in pencil using a computer generated outline, on a square base card before cutting away the edges and middles, the raw edges were shaded with Copics to give a 3D effect then some Nitwits DP was stuck to the back to make a little meadow scene. The sentiment is from LOTV and I cut a sun freehand from a scalloped circle diecut before mounting the sentiment.
OK, that's about it for me, check out the rest of the DT's fab inspiration and why not join us this week. I would love to see what you come up with!

I'd like to join in over at:-

As You Like It Challenge
Bright or Pastels
I go for brights especially for birthday cards for men, they seem much more appropriate and I prefer them to the grungy male colours!


Anything Goes - option of a sketch (no sketch for me this week)


  1. Aaawww, that's a super cute card. Clever idea to create it with the numbers. Your project is just perfect.

  2. A fab design, Jules - lovely image and I like how you put the background behind the numbers. Hope your hubby enjoyed his day.
    Hugz, Jan xx

  3. This is a great card, I love your design with those large numbers and that super car. Thank you for joining in the fun with this time at Creative Inspirations.

  4. This is brilliant Jules and I bet Al loved it!! Looks rather like a Ford if I'm not mistaken!! xx
