Grumpy Old Man

Lewis has settled into high school - we have had a little chat and have told him unfortunately the world is full of people who say nasty things because they think it's funny - he is such a worrier and takes to heart everything that is said.....a tough lesson coming from a tiny church school where everyone wouldn't say boo to a goose :?

I was asked a couple of weeks ago by my friend who lives next door to make a card for a man at work who is turning 60 and is grumpy and likes a pint !

I had this Bugaboo image on my hard drive and decided it would fit the bill - I did check that the sentiment was okay before I added it !!

I used my glossy accents for his glasses and am so happy with them.....not photographed as well as I would have like but never mind.

  2. lmao! I love that sentiment!!! so funny. Great card. I bet he will love it.
    I'm pleased your son is doing a bit better. I've said almost exactly the same to my niece. They will always come across bullies or people who like to put others down to make themselves look better. As long as he doesn't take it personally he will be fine xxx

  3. LOLOLOLOL...this did make me chuckle Susan..again another flabulous Bugaboo image. I'm sure John loved it :-D xx

  4. Great card such a funny image. Love the backing papers.
    Glad your son is settling in. It's a big step moving to high school.
