It was my hubby's 50th birthday and as I had been quite ill in hospital and just discharged, I hadnt a clue what I was going to do for a card for him. I made a couple and binned them (as we do). The day of his birthday I gave him all the other cards he had and I still hadnt finished mine for him. Bits were on and then off and then in the bin. Eventually I made this one. It was rushed and not what I wanted but I finished it and gave it to him when he finished work. It was the first twisted easel card I had made and might not make another.
My hubby lost his job just after I moved in with him. It was a bit of a struggle but we managed - what a start to married life. I was delighted when he got a new job and made this card for him. He's a poker player, so thought this was appropriate.

I am 55 years old and have been crafting for as long as I can remember, in fact started knitting when I was just 5. I have attempted various crafts over the years which have included knitting, cross stitch, ceramics and now mainly card making. My favourite being decoupage as I find it most relaxing when I'm cutting out. Like most crafters have lots of stuff and could be doing with a massive room to keep it in. I am also a big F1 fan and love to watch it on a Sunday. I try to do some crafting each day but dont always manage it. I have two nieces and three great nephews and I love them all to bits. I married my Douglas in Las Vegas in 2010 and am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with him.
