70 Years ago my dear husband was born! 35 of those years have been spent married to me.... and to mark the occasion I needed a card that would show some of his interests so here is the finished item where I have used some old maps (appropriate sections of course), papers that I won last December, the car/ beer mugs stamps are Creative Stamping freebies,the bicycle is Tim Holtz & the skier is from A Muse Art Stamps- the numbers were cut using my cuttlebug.

He fell off his bike back in December and damaged his rotator cuff so has had a 2cm tear to the tendon no cycling at the moment! He used to rally but not in a car like the one on the card, he does enjoy driving however & does all the driving when we go driving to the South of France. Ski-ing is our joint passion and we spend every winter on the ski slopes in the southern french alps.

A real fan of "real ale" we will be heading along to the Deeside Brewery beer fest later on today and as a birthday treat a friend has arranged s taxi for us all so no one has to be a designated driver :-D.

I don't expect to be receiving a handmade card from him on Monday but I am sure that there are some lovely cards for me to open.


Thanks for looking.
