65th Birthday

Friday, 3 April 2009


I made a card for my brother's girlfriend to give to her dad for his 65th birthday. I've never met the man and have no idea what he likes!! I was given no direction on what to do apart from that he didn't want a big deal made out of his age. So after scratching my head for a while, I came up with this:


I followed the sketch from BasicGrey Challenges - this is my first (hopefully of many!) entry to that challenge - I love basic grey papers!


I cut the wording with my ROBO from the Archaic paper pad and I used my MS punch at the bottom.


And on the inside:


Update on my mum...

Her wrist is badly broken, one bone broke and folded back on itself and hit off another bone shattering it into 5 pieces - I'm still saying eeuuuggghhh!
She got it set today but may need to have an operation if it doesn't set properly. She's in quite a lot of pain but I think the fact that she needs help is bothering her more - and she knows how much I have on for the next while but I'll just have to sort something out.

Anyway, better go and enter this as I've just noticed it has to be entered by 9 o'clock on friday night! Not like me to be last minute!!! Ha!
