Hubbie'll fix it

Around here there are certain jobs that fall under the jurisdiction of hubby jobs, anything involving rubbish (although I also enjoy trips to the tip, love the feeling of chucking stuff in the skips lol), anything that needs fixing (normally because clumsy clot here has dropped, kicked or tripped over it) and finally getting rid of anything with more legs than I have.

So as soon as I saw this image I knew it would be perfect for his card. For those of you not old enough to remember Jim'll fix it was a very popular saturday night programme in the seventies and for those of us old enough to remember did any of you write in and even better get picked lol. I thought this sentiment fitted Hubby perfectly.

Lots of new stuff tried on this card, the holes (I was trying to make the cork paper look like a peg board) were coloured using a sharpie marker using my Stampin up mat stack as a guide. The tools are MFT dies and the little black brads were actually pink before the sharpie coloured them. Lots of inking again I am loving my splodgeaway and also gathered twigs ink is deffo my favouite.

I thought his t-shirt looked a little plain so I stamped a sentiment from the Geek Guy set from MFT, as hubby works in IT I am sure this will bring a smile to his lips, probably not as much as owning a real yellow DeWalt drill though.

I am hoping he likes it though and I wanted to wish him a very happy birthday, love you all the monies XXX

Brilliant Amanda! Your hubby sounds like a star and this card is perfect for your own super-hero :) Hope he has a fabby day and that the hardest work he does this evening is perhaps to remove a spider if necessary and then open a bottle of wine with you.

Hugs, Di xx
