Have a Fantastically Spiffing Birthday

It is wonderful to be back in my craft room.  We have not had any heating in the house since Thursday night (except for the woodburner in the living room), so I haven't ventured into my craft room except to grab my laptop and run!  I now have several cards to make, as well as a first attempt at an altered pencil tin lid, so will be here a lot over the next few days.

This bright, breezy and SteamPunky card is for my hubby's son's 22nd birthday (I don't call him stepson, as I don't think they would like to see me as their stepmum!).

He loves Monty Python, so thought a Steam Punk design would suit him.  I created the main 'topper' layers with the My Craft Studio Tinkering with Steampunk CD-Rom via my new Serif Craft Artist 2 software (fab!!) - and then used some scraps of card and paper to complete it.

I am entering this into -
