It's a big one!!

Hey again!  Back with a second post for the day - I'm trying to get it in quickly in case we lose our internet access again; we didn't have any internet or landline phone connection all day yesterday and it's only just come back on!  Boy, was I lost without it - just shows how much I rely on it and I'm not sure that's a good thing............................

Anyway, I saw a blog hop over at with some great prizes so i thought I would have a go.  The challenge theme is 'big birthdays' and as my hubby is edging closer to the big 50, I thought I would go with that (I'll probably end up doing him a Harley-themed card in the end, as always!)

I went for a 'side-step' card for a change and matted the "Surprise Kid" digi so it would hang over the edge of the card - I wanted a crooked feel to the whole thing!  The digi was a freebie from - there's usually a different one each month, well worth checking out :)

I would like to put this in for the following - - easel or more than 1 fold - let's hear it for the boys

Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely, much appreciated comments :)
