Buttons or Bows? at TTT

Hey all its a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday

and our lovely host this time is Elaine

The Challenge theme -  Buttons or Bows
and our fabulous Sponsor
is the lovely

Now don't get me wrong I love buttons but if I have to choose on cards I prefer bows

Nope your not seeing things there are little 60's and a big 50
one of my teamies made a card like this on TTT
a few months ago and I just had to have a go at one...
But the story behind the 50 and 60's is this
Our friend was turning 50 and he has a young son
his son said to him in a hysterical voice DADDY its not fair your gonna be 60!!!!! Mick said to him NO I am gonna be 50!
His Son got really upset and said
But Daddy you will be 60 before me its just not fair!
tehhehhee what a cheeky fella
so to make the card a little punny I adding the chalked 60's.

:My tip is when sending this card by post make a matching box
but use bubble wrap in the colour and box to stop it getting squashed.

Mike LOVED the card
