Crafty Cardmakers - A Special Birthday xxx

Hi all
Hope your all well and enjoying this wee bit of sunshine today?? After pouring yesterday its lovely to see the sun again!

This time over on Crafty Cardmakers, it was my turn to pick the wee Challenge and I picked
SPECIAL BIRTHDAYS

The reason for this is my lovely Big Brother is 30 today!! Woop woop Happy Birthday Big bro, love ya and see you soon!! Not only that my Mum has a big Birthday at the end of the month (I'm not telling them your 50 Mum hehe), my Gran is 75 this year and my hubby is 30 in October, busy year for us!

With my Brother being in the Navy I wanted to make a special card but nothing to big or a box as he would have no where to keep anything! Here's what I made

Ingredients
Stamp - TGF My Guy Ian
paper pieced and coloured with promarkers
Paper - K&Co Hopscotch
glitter
everything else from stash



I would like to enter this into the following Challenges
Anyone For Anya - Birthday Card
One Stitch at a time - Something for the Boys
I ♥ ProMarkers - Men's cards

I hope you will join us this time and make a Special Birthday card fro that someone SPECIAL!!Remember and check out the Dt's fab creations for some great inspiration!!
Hugs Melly xxx
