OH's 50th for Friday Sketchers

Just finished clearing up after a great family do for Nick's 50th birthday last night! We had such a good evening and crowned by his brother arriving from the Lake District as a surprise!! Wow, it was such a happy evening. This is the card I made for him with a Third Coast Rubber stamp, coloured with Promarkers.
My papers are a combo of Basic Grey and 7 Gypsies Zanzibar,  Followed the sketch over on Friday Sketchers - you can always rely on them for a great sketch!!
 I'd started to make a concertina card with the new Pin Up images from Kraftin Kimmie but my girls told me it was too girlie so I just used it as a banner.
And a couple of close ups:

Finally, Nick is always complaining that I have a pic of my lovelies on here but not him, so thought I'd show you the birthday boy himself!!

I've been trying to make a DT card and I'm obviously still feeling the after effects of last night as I've just given up!!  I'll give it another go after dinner!!

Hi Julie,
Whenever I pay you a visit, which I'm ashamed to say isn't nearly often enough, I always already have or am lusting after the stamp you have used. Case in point, I just lurve those Kraftin Kimmie Pin Ups. The main image however, like your man, is more my hubbie's cup of tea, LOL! Nonetheless, it looks stunning! Sounds like you had a great night! Hope you've recovered!
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
