80th Birthday


This is for my son in law's Dad from him and my daughter.
I am working on two more, one  for the grandchildren and one from us.

Papers are by Summer Driggs
I printed the light patterned paper on card, cut a hole in it and added gold 'string' and adhered with foam tape. The flourish was not planned but I accidentally made a smear of gold pen so had to cover it with something, lol.
The three sentiment circles are made in Publisher and also stuck on with foam tape.

My cutting out of the circle was quite neat but I went around it with a fine peel off to finish it off.

Crafty Sentiments - use numbers
Alphabet Challenge - for men only
Bearly Mine  #46 - anything goes
Come and Get It - adult birthday card- chosen as one of the Top 3 :)
Kaboodle #130 - birthday or special day - missed it!
Hooked on Crafts #23 - let's celebrate

Thank you for stopping by
Cheers me dears

Thanks for you visit and kind words.

I will certainly let you know then next I am off to Coleman's, I am waiting for some Memory Box dies to arrive, so as soon as they let me know they are there I will tell you.

Have a lovely Sunday, oh nearly forgot to mention your card, very elegant and a great one for a guy.
