In The Jungle, The Mighty Jungle.....

Well, whats happened to this fabulous weather we are meant to be having? Yesterday was gorgeous, o made arrangements to help someone with their gardening today & yeah its yukky!! Fingers crossed it brightens up later, because it really need doing & I'm not sure when else I will get chance. I'm starting a new job next week....so scared lol I'm going from support worker (which I loved) to customer service/checkout at Homebase (big DIY store) it was a hard decision as I loved my support work, met some fabulous people, who I'm gonna stay in touch with. But when it comes down to working a few more hours or Nige having to work full time, I decided I would work more. Nige just couldn't take working full time. He is pooped after two 9 hour shifts so anymore after that & it would make him poorly again & that I just couldn't cope with knowing I could of helped xx

Anyhoos enough of that, I'm here to share my latest DT creation with you. 
This is for My Time To Craft, which is my challenge blog & thankfully something in my head must have said you need to make a birthday card for Nige soon, so I chose this theme lol


I generally steer well clear of male cards unless I have to, as Nige's birthday is near the end of May I needed to make him one. I remember when I got this stamp set free with my magazine he loved it....so here you go my card for my hubby for his 49th birthday xx
