Saturday 24th April saw the 30th birthday of Gordon, aka Mr Cards And Candles For All Occasions so we couldn’t let the day pass without a few handcrafted gifts for the birthday boy.
First, we have this personalised photo frame and door plaque which was created by the very talented Wendy of 1st Unique Gifts:
Next there are two gorgeous handpainted canvasses from Terri Lowe Design:
Gordon’s birthday keepsake card from me and of course his birthday card from the animals:
And just when the birthday boy thought he had opened all of his gifts, I presented him with his scrapbook 🙂
The last page of Gord’s scrapbook contained the biggest surprise of all…
Gord is a huge fan of the comedian Jim Davidson who is touring this year, but as we are investing all of our money into getting the business off the ground I convinced him that we couldn’t afford to go to see Jimbo on stage, so can you imagine his surprise when he found this:
To say we had an emotional moment, followed by disbelief, followed by “we can’t afford it” then huge smiles would be an understatement, it not only made his day to get the tickets he really wanted but it also made my day to see his reaction.
I’d like to say a huge thank you to Joanna of Stampoholic for her part and help in creating such a beautiful scrapbook, without Jo then I certainly would never have tried scrapbooking!!
So all that was left to do after pressies was to relax and enjoy the buffet and birthday barbecue:
I think he was a happy birthday boy 🙂
