Birthday card for my boss

Tuesday was my bosses birthday, so I decided to make him a card, I thought I could get away with this Bugaboo image as he has a sense of humour and would take it in the spirit it was meant - I appear not to have received my P45, so think I got away with it :-D

I didn't have ages to do this card, so it's quite basic (but then, the cards I do for men usually are!) and I was using up some odds and ends of papers that were on my desk, and my mojo is still wanderlust, but I suppose that is no surprise with everything going on at the moment :-(

The papers are by MME, ribbons and buttons from my stash and Jute from LCI. I've added a big dollup of glossy accents to his glasses too :-)

I even had enough paper to do the inside!!

I'd like to enter these challenges please

I was really pleased to spot that I had won a prize over at Karen's Doodles Challenge for one of my recent easter cards - thank you so much - after a week like I've had it was a lovely surprise :-)

Before I go just a quick update on my Dad - they have done loads of tests on all sorts of equipment, he is still in good spirits but remains in intensive care for the time being, no results as yet but fingers crossed all will be OK

Thanks again for all your support, and kind wishes - it means a lot (hugs to you all) - sorry I haven't had chance to respond individually
