Lazy Afternoon

Good afternoon everyone I hope you are all keeping warm and  have had a great week. Today I'm sharing the card I made for my Husbands Birthday which was on Monday. He had a lovely day and  we both enjoyed a nice meal out in the evening at one of our favourite pubs The Dun Cow in Sedgefield.
For his card I used one of my Lili of the Valley stamps that was one of the first ones I ever bought called Lazy Afternoon and if you are interested in it they still have it as a rubber stamp its great for all men occasions .
