My Toyboy Is Turning 40!! Tee Hee!!

Hello everyone and a very happy Thursday to you all!

I cannot remember when I last brought you a blog with an actual card that I have made. And I cannot put into words how very wonderful it feels to have sat and created properly either.

40th Birthday Card 1

It is a testament to how much I love my husband, that I have sat and created my first card in months. If you scroll back you’ll find it was around April I think.  (It’s been a very long time.)

40th Birthday Card 3

On Monday, my hubby turns 40, and it is cause for great celebration in our house, as I am a whopping FOUR years older than him, and he never ever lets me forget it! Laughing.

I think that he has been secretly dreading this milestone, and so of course his Birthday card had to reflect that (with my usual humour thrown in of course.)

40th Birthday Card 2

And I just so happened to have the perfect image for it too.

I have used one of the Brian Getting Fit images, available from Make It Crafty. This one is called Brian Does Weights and to bring him to life I used my Polychromo Pencils in these shades:-

Skin – 280. 283. 180. 188. 189. 132. 102. 103. 101.

Hair – 182. 185. 184. 102.

Tee Shirt – 246. 275. 274. 273. 272. 271. 101.

Shorts – 155. 153. 154. 101.

Trainers – 246. 152. 199. 275. 274. 271.

Weights Bench (Seat) – 199. 275. 274. 271.

Weights Bench (Metal Frame) – 234. 233. 232. 231.

Dumbbell – 235. 234. 233. 232. 231. 101.

Background & Floor – 180. 145. Cotton Bud & Zest It Pencil Blend.

40th Birthday Card 4

The blue card is Cor-dinations and is layered with Kraft card.

I finished with a white scallop edged card (from Joanna Sheen) and some blue & white striped Baker’s Twine.

40th Birthday Card 5

The “Made For You” bronze charm is from the depths of my crafty cupboard.

I really hope that you like what I created.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!
