You can run.....

These years go round so darned quickly - I couldn't believe it was already time to come up with some fun card idea for my cousin.  His idea of the perfect birthday is taking the day off from work, having a long lie-in and being left alone to do as little as possible.  Usually he'll jump at the chance of a meal out or meeting up - but not on his birthday!  I'll add a mini gallery of some of the cards I've made for him over the years but first, here's this year's, which on the front is quite plain really
But on the inside there's big letters, bright colour and horror of horrors for a man's card GLITTER!!!! Well, that'll teach him for being such a Bah Humbug about his birthday!

Materials and Tools:
Chevron paper from the latest Quirky Kit
Coloured paper inside from Bo Bunny
Bazzill card; Pink, Grey
Googly Eyes, Black yarn for hair
Ice Stickles in various colours
Craft Robo to cut the Letters, the Running Man and the Head/Hands for the hiding man
All other wording printed direct onto the card from the pc

Here's a montage f some of the other cards I've made for him over the last few years - I'm not quite sure why it amuses me to put so much thought and effort into his cards, but it does!
Actually, it's probably because he thinks I'm bonkers!
