One down - two to go.
We will have a family get together on Tues to celebrate the big day and again on Saturday at the local pub.
He doesn't like to be the centre of attention so he doesn't want a party. He is saving hard for a car, which he could afford right now - BUT - it is the insurance that is crippling.. With this in mind he will be getting money for his birthday ;-)
His first driving test is on Thursday so we are all keeping our fingers crossed for him. He has got next week off work so I hope he'll be able to get in some extra driving practice.
I printed the reversed numbers on the back of a piece of card, then heat embossed on the front with silver EP. I put this through the CB then cut the numbers out. I used the metallic rub again to take off the shine then embossed the edges with verdigris EP.
Two oval mats here - corrugated card dabbed with a copper ink pad and a larger piece cut around with fancy scissors in a paper from the Papermania Aqua PP - a bargain buy at Colemans Wharehouse sale - £2.99 for 30 sheets :-)
The main BP is Gina Miller Boy Blues. I particularly like this deep turquoise colour and it is fortunate the two compliment each other. I forget where the lighter coloured paper is from.
I have used the same BP for the inside
