Birthday card for Doug

Hi everyone, late again tonight! It was our last choir concert for the year tonight and capped off 3 nights in a row of singing. Our concert went well and I think people enjoyed it. A cup of coffee afterwards with some of the choristers capped the evening off and just popped on to share my card.
I had the grandchildren today as well and the girls helped me put up the tree and decorate it. We popped out to the shops and grabbed a couple of groceries and some t-shirts for Isaac for Christmas and a new pair of sandals for him too. Layla had put her own shoes on in the morning and had two different sizes of shoes on LOL. She has two pair of the same ones but the new pair were a size bigger!!!  Luckily she had managed to have both a left and right shoe. They saw Father Christmas wandering around the mall giving out cardboard elf hats and they were able to pass on what they wanted for Christmas too.
Well, I had better get on and share the card I made for Doug and then get some sleep. Tomorrow will be trying to pack away some of my craft gear in prep for Christmas day.

Front of card (my friend took these pics with her i phone after I gave Doug his card so I've already written in it!)

Inside of card ( I did the sentiments on the computer and didn't leave enough room to diecut the inside one  as I had other the drummer boy and another couple of images on the page too so had to cut it out by hand and adhere to the diecut. I should have done it again, but just ran out of time!)

SU Early Espresso cardstock
DP from Stash
Sentiments I made up and printed on the computer
Diecut -  rectangles ( I traced around the outside of die to make a matte for the white diecut) and an alphabet die for the numbers
