U Rock Hubby!

Tomorrow is my husband Callum's Birthday.......he is my toyboy.....well 2 years younger than me!

He may well be hitting his mid 40's but he still thinks he is young enough to hit the live music festivals! I have been to Glastonbury and the 'V' festival with him once and, once was all I needed!! I loved the festivals but camping and using outdoor loos is not my idea of a weekend of fun. So since then he has gone to the festivals with his friend. Last year they missed a year so this year I thought I would buy him tickets to go to 'Lovebox' and music festival that just happens to be near us. I looked at the line up and not knowing who any of the bands were I just went for 2 Saturday tickets. I' m just hoping that I have chosen the right day......my finances couldn't stretch to 2 weekend tickets-they sure do charge you enough to pitch a tent in mud!

As I booked the tickets online I decided to make a 'mock-up' ticket and slot it into my own hand-made pocket card. I got this idea when I saw the challenge this week at paper makeup stamps.

I made the pocket card simply out of Kraft card stock and stuck 3 edges together so I could just slip my handmade 'mock-up' ticket in, with the top part showing. I kept to the theme and used a digi image form Create with TLC (it says-U ROCK-if you can't see it). I layered the image onto vintage music sheet paper and added some jute twine. The earth tones are my link to the fact that the festival is outside and is likely to be muddy! Earth tones is the challenge this week at Dream Valley Challenges. I will also enter this into the 'our boys and their toys' challenge at our creative corner

I made Callum's card a while ago and did post it but just as a reminder as it does follow the same theme...........and yes Callum really is my rock! So a very Happy Birthday to my very own rocker toyboy!!


  1. Happy, happy birthday to Callum! He's one day before Neal...he's on the 19th! Your card is perfection for him with the ticket! I love it. Remind me to tell you my "camping" story! I'm not a camper either...laughed out loud when I read your comments...we are definitely related!!
