A Classic Birthday!

One of the things I've always loved about Sunshine's Stamps is the wonderful images they have for the guys in our lives! This '71 Mustang is no exception! Now I was thinking this would make a FABULOUS 40th birthday card if you know anyone having one next year - but since it's only 2010 I've made it into a birthday card for someone who either enjoys classic cars - or believes they are ageing gracefully!

I've generated the sentiment on my computer - and once again there were many laughs as my family "tried" to help out with some of the wording! I do worry how their minds are working sometimes - LOL. My favourite "men's" checker plate embossing folder has been used again - I just can't go past this one for guys. The DP is from SU and the tag has been cut using nestabilities.

A little sponging around the edge of the white panel has just softened the edges and aged it slightly to go with the rest of the card! Being a guy's card there isn't too much embellishment needed.

One more day of work before the weekend - just wish our TV coverage of the Winter Olympics was better - it would be great to spend some time enjoying top class sports - especially the figure skating - a must in this house as my daughter is a skater!!! Ah well - will have to make do with a fun FUN fun day out tomorrow crafting with Kristy and Kellie....
