Over the Hill

I made this card for my old boss (probably lucky he isn't doing my performance reviews anymore). He is a few months younger than his wife and has told me he uses those three months between their birthday to pay out on her as much as possible about her being old. So in her defence I didn't make him a 'nice' birthday card this year but an 'Over the Hill' one!! hehe Happy 50th Birthday!!
