Happy 80th Birthday
Happy Friday morning all,
Yes almost weekend and it promises to be a lovely one here in this part of South Africa. We can feel spring edging closer, and I just want to get into the garden...but have learnt from past experience, winter is not going to just let go...so will wait another week or two. Anyhow I have a special card today. One of our very best, old friend...as in long time... turns 80 today... and this is the card I have made for him. He is Irish..but won't hold that against him..LOL hence the greeting on the front.
This is what I used on my gate fold card:
Paper.. Bazzill cardstock, DP from Papermania..Hampstead collection
Image... Digi from Anne Fenton coloured with a combination of Aquarelles, Tombows and Twinkling H20s
Sentiments... Computer generated
Finished off with a few small buttons, a button 4 leaf clover, also a punched one and the 80 cut with my cuttlebug.
I made a band just to hold it together, and the sentiment on that is in Gaelic, means Happy Birthday, finished off with a button 4 leaf clover.
I hope he will like it.
I will enter it in the following challenges:
Craft your days away... Birthday
Anything goes ... Happy Birthday/Celebrate
Tuesday Throwdown ...Birthday
Top Tip Tuesday ...Straight edges
Cards for Men ... CAS
Hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend and whatever you may be doing...have fun.
