Eye of the Tiger





I really struggle with cards for men, my closest 3 aren't into cute in any form, I was using my Jayne Netley Mayhew CD the other day and decided to print off this image. There were several reasons for picking a tiger, not least as our youngest son calls his dad Pi , ?? after the film Life of Pi, but more especially as hubby loves wildlife programmes.This is for James to give to his dad, dad thinks nothing of getting up early to drive him to work in Aberdeen, over 50 miles from where we stay, there is no public transport until 11 am on a Sunday, James does drive but parking is expensive it would be at least £12 per shift.

Tonic Die to emboss background
Sentiment a stamp from Papermania
