Birthday Boy's card and taking a 'little break'

Hi everyone!
Today is my eldest son's birthday, I'm not going to say how old he is as it makes me feel ancient, but suffice to say that it's 30 plus years!
I find it quite difficult to make cards for my sons as I always want them to be different from the 'normal' male cards i.e. football, cars etc. (although I sometimes have to resort to that!) this time I decided to take the slightly humorous route and hope that he likes it.
I've made this by folding an A4 sheet of card lengthways for a change and I've also decoupaged some of the animals so they stand out slightly.

Card Details:
* Image - PC Crafter download 'Born to be Wild'
* Everything else from my stash

As some of you may be aware, family matters have recently been taking priority over everything else. Sadly this situation has worsened and I'm now finding it increasingly difficult to muster the motivation to continue with anything else.
In view of this, I've decided to take a short break from everything and temporarily cut back on my crafting and blogging (except my fortnightly DT cards for the Sketch & Stash Challenge and the odd family card)
I shall miss visiting you all, but I hope you will understand when I say I need to have a little 'rest' from things at the moment.
I look forward to coming back to 'normal service' in the not too distant future, with renewed enthusiasm and a hyper active Mojo. Until then, I'd like to thank you for your support and send lots of good wishes your way.
