And now for something completely different...

It is my son-in-law's birthday soon.  Last year (in my Blogless world) I made him a card with pictures of us all on holiday together.  He is in the photography and printing business.

I really didn't know what to do this year because I no longer have any pre-cut dies anything like as good as the camera I used last year. I suspect it is by Jolee's Boutique.  Isn't it fab!
Anyway, in the end, I thought I would have a go at a boxed shirt.  I think I like it.  I hope he does! They are certainly his colours.   Shirt stamp is by Creative Impressions and I have added some sleeves and cuffs.  Shirt "fabric" and background papers are Dovecraft and the sentiment is Stampendous.

Hi Lesley

Firstly, I hope you had a great birthday (but I think I know the answer to that already.. ... so sorry you had to cook!!).

Your card is brilliant .. .. though you gave yourself a hard card to follow. Last years was fantastic too!!!

Your boxed shirt is just fantastic. I have a similar stamp ... .. but it has never looked this good!!

I hope you have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
