Happy New Year & A Card

Happy New Year Everyone!! Wow where did Christmas go? I had so many plans for the 2 weeks hubby had off & didn't manage any of them lol!! So anyway we are now in 2013 & boy have I got big plans for this year :-) I turn the big 4-0 in a few weeks & I have decided this is my year for doing....well we will see how far I get.....
This year I have a few BIG birthdays amongst friends & families so I will be creating like a madman to keep up lol!! Luckily I start with a nice easy one. This is for my Bestie's oldest who will be 23 :-)

I have used this fab Dustin Pike image & coloured with Promarkers. I have kept the card quite simple as boys don't like fussy. I used a Pink Gem ticket stamp for the sentiment. Here is a closeup of the image used.

The base of the card again is pretty simple but carries through the colour scheme. 

Next up will be his Mum's card, so please pop back soon x Clare x
