Lots of BIRTHDAYS......

January is a month of family birthdays DD is first which was last Saturday the 8th DH is tomorrow the 12th and mine is Sunday 16th  ( there is a clue in my blog name Capricorn Craft ) LOL and last  but not least our Grandsons is the 21st..... phew a houseful of Capricorns except for the last one he just missed being a Capricorn by one day............so today I am posting DH birthday card that has taken me days yes days to complete as I have had a bad back and sitting for any length of time has been a right pain in the ............back!!!

Music was my theme and as he is always browsing charity shops for old music books I have added part of a page from one of those books... don't panic he didn't want this one..... honest .. I distressed the edges, Stamp plate  is from Creative Expressions I just had to have this one as this boy looks just like my DH when he was a boy;  really it does , I have layered onto co-ordination's card which again I have distressed and cut with Tim Holtz On The Edge Die, stamped image is embossed in black and then DI inks Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass have been added,  Just a Note was stamped onto part of page from music book and distressed by crumpling and then touching edges with black soot DI. Buttons from and main card from Stampin' Up!

Have to finish now as I have been sitting long enough hopefully I can get back to crafting soon I was gutted to miss out on last weeks CCC !!

Bye for now
