18th Birthday Card

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday dear Dragonlady!!!!! Happy Birthday to me!!

Sorry just had to do that - saddo eh!!

I am not very good at boys/mens cards. This one took a long time to develop but I am pleased with the result. My second cousin will be celebrating his 18th next week so I wanted to do something a bit different.  Funny though I was so sure he was 15 last year - how does that work???

I have used a few buttons and some card candy - which has come in very useful recently. A lovely key charm and a dog button. The letters were from a Daisytrail kit called - At The Zoo cut out and stuck on!!!!!

Any good idea for presents for an 18 year old?

Just a few challenges to enter -

One Stop Craft - Male card,

Pile It On - Anything Goes,

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - Extra large card (mine is 6" by 8"),

Charisma Challenge - Magic Numbers, and,

Delightful Sketches - Celebration.

Thank you for visiting, let me know you popped by as I do love reading your comments.

Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
