It's my future
son in law's son-in-laws son in-law's sons in law, it's Ben's 30th birthday today lol! We're all going out for dinner including his parents and one of his sisters to a restaurant in a hotel where we lived for the first 3 months after arriving in Scotland almost 27 years ago. The name has changed as I'm sure all the staff but it will be interesting to go back.
I mentioned Ben was the manager in Yo Sushi and had a lightbulb moment when I was thinking about what to do for his card. I thought I would use Add On Magnum with the can of tuna from the Magnum Add Ons but felt there was something missing so asked Moira (Magnum's brilliant illustrator) to draw a chef's hat for me and this is what I came up with...
Apologies for the pictures...they're not getting any better are they lol. I had to take them quickly and didn't have time to set up my tent (not that those pictures are any good these days either hmph). I saw a card on Mary J's blog yesterday and decided to 'borrow' the idea...she has a great way of cutting out the image and mounting it on a circle/square/whatever and I thought it would be a bit different from my normal boring square/mount/mount/etc. I'm really pleased with the result. I made a background of the fish scales from the Add On set for the border and did a bit of distressing on the edges.
LOL...I love his chef's hat!!! This will be available soon to purchase as a
Don't think I was getting too fancy with the inside...the Magnum you're looking at was supposed to be on the front of the card but I thought it looked to small so put it inside so as not to waste it.
I love making sentiments this way...it kinda looks like a flag. I curl the middle up and the ends down and put a sticky fixer in the middle to keep it raised and use my snot gun to tack the ends down.
Time to fly...I'm on balloon duty. Nicole has booked a couple of booths in a nightclub for after dinner (no I am NOT going!) and she hasn't had a chance to get them decorated.
Hope you have a great weekend. Don't forget to take advantage of purchasing the SOTM for 1/2 price...you'll kick yourself if you don't!!!
Catch ya later x
