Tom's Birthday card

An early start to the day getting up at 6 a.m. to get ready to go to Victor Harbour. Adrian, our daughter, Rachel and I hopped into the truck and got going about 7 a.m. On the way we had some rain which wasn't good as the auction we were going to is held outside and they have been known to cancel it. Once on our way, the only means of finding out if it is cancelled is if our friends who are staying at their beach house ring us on the mobile.  They didn't call, but when we got there they had spread it out differently as the grass was saturated and it had begun to rain, so a lot of the furniture got wet. Rachel was looking for a dining table and chairs and there was a really nice one there, she went to $120 but decided not to keep bidding so another woman bought it for $125. She didn't want to pay more than $100 so it was just as well and hopefully there will be another one in the next auction. It is all donated goods so they made a good amount of money on the table for charity.
We stopped and had lunch with our friends and then headed back mid afternoon as both Rachel and Adrian had plans for tea. I had tea at home, but my friend Fran and I went to the cinema to watch a film called "The Sapphires" it's about an aboriginal singing group (female) who went to Vietnam to entertain the troops. It was an interesting film, we both enjoyed it.
It is still very cold here, I think this has been one of the coldest weeks for a while now.
My card for today is the one I made Thursday for Tom and haven't shared yet. I know it's a female nurse, but Tom is studying at present to become a nurse and this was the only nurse image I had, He appreciated the humour of it, LOL.
Here it is:

Front of card - the hair hasn't scanned quite right - it looks like orange here,  but it was a medium blonde colour.

 Laid out flat - As these panel just hold the card up when open, I didn't put any embellishments on them.
On the back of the card I put some more DP and then a white topnote diecut to write on.

Blue cardstock from stash for base card,
