For John's birthday ...

... from mum. John is one of those awkward people - he has a birthday close to Christmas and he's not the only one in our family ... there are lots of them!!

Anyway, this is a card I've made for mum to give to John (I still need to make mine for him, but his birthday isn't until Sunday, so I have lots of time yet - lol!).

The bowler stamp is Personal Impressions - inked with memento and coloured with copics. The edges of the scalloped card blank were brushed with shabby shutters distress ink. Photo is awful because of the flash - the sentiment include 'lots of love'.

This is for:
