80th Birthday Party

We have just got back from an 80th Birthday party.......we know how to party in our family.....
I forgot to take a picture of the card I made for Uncle Kenneth. It was all nautical as he used to be a Captain in the Merchant Navy. I used an old nautical map and stained it with some Tim Holz inks.
Stamped some ships and mounted them on torn coredinations paper (also stained ) Then I made an 80 from Shrink plastic and coloured it to match the stain used on the rest of the card. It didnt look bad if I do say so myself.  Just mad at myself for not taking a photo of it.

Got an interview tomorrow morning so fingers crossed. Interview suit at the ready and route planned. Just going to do some homework on the prospective employer.

Happy crafting

  1. Yes, I would have liked seeing the card with the map. That sounds really great. I usually make a bunch of cards at one sitting, however I agree that it is more fun to make a card especially for the occasion.
