Happy Birthday Gareth

It is hubbie's youngest brother's birthday today and I am finding it hard to believe that he will be 30 next year, especially as he was only 5 when I met my hubbie lol. As long as I have known him he has loved burgers, any kind but one of his fondest memories is staying with us as a teenager and hubbie making him a burger with cheese and special sauce inside. Everytime we have a bbq he mentions it lol. Oh and the special sauce was just ketchup and mayo mixed to make it pink.

As soon as I saw this image I thought of him, especially as hubbie is called Ant lol. I bought the papers especially for this card and the bonus was the images that came with it, love the ketchup bottle and the ketchup spill is genius. As you can guarantee that he will spill something on every visit. I found the font called "Antpile" and thought it looked like a marching ant troup and was perfect for this card. I have tried to create a picnic feel and hopefully I managed that.

The card itself is a twisted easel as it had to top this card I made him last year. I can't imagine what I will have to make next year for his big 30.
