First ever Never ending card for a special person

Hi guys,

I have been working on this all week and I have found it quite hard to decorate. I always find men hard to do cards for.....I do not know why but I always struggle. This card is for Dave or to people his knows on Trimcrafts.....Glassman. We go over to Tina and Dave's every 2 weeks to craft and really put the world to rights like you do and have a great laugh. So Dave likes glass.......music.......a couple of drinks.........Katie the assistant daog they have....(well to be honest everyone loves her). I wanted to decorate each side differently so here it is.... i do hope Dave and you guys like it.The first page had to be covered in music as he loves his music. The image I can not remember where I got from. I used papers and my cuttlebug music folder to make the backgrounds. I have a few card candy to put on the finishing touches.
I think all men have favourite sayings and Dave's is "It takes years of abuse to achieve a body like THIS!" I have this stamp in the It's a Man's World collection from Claire Curd. The elephant is a stamp from the Dimension Fourth Company. Papers used were from the Mind's eye and a papermania set I have had for years. This page is dedicated to Katie their dog. Dave spoils Katie to pieces and does take her for lots of walks which he loves really. Papers I used were from the Dovecraft pets designer paper pack.I have to say I love this pack of papers. The dog stamp is from Home and Heart collection and the paw stamp is from Stampendous. Which I stamped and then embossed with black powder. The last page I had to be able to sign from us all which I have to admit and I nearly forgot about. The image is from the Buzzcraft Paws-fur-a-Moment collection. The sendiment is from the same collection and I used the nesties so I could write our little bit. The papers I used on this was for the Dovecraft masculine Designer paper pack.
In the end I am happy with the results and may be tempted to make another one. They are fun to play with.
Hope you like and please do leave a comment as I love receiving them.
Luv Jane XX
