At least, that’s how many candles there should be on Basil’s cake tomorrow! My gorgeous neighbour will be 89 – and he gets around like a man many years younger. You may remember from my post here, that he was a POW in WWII, and we do ANZAC Day together each year now. With him being Air Force, and us Navy, there’s a bit of inter-service rivalry goes on over the hedge! (But then I remind him that the navy is the Senior Service – and he has no comeback to that!).
ANYWAY… I wanted to make Basil a card tonight, and fortunately the new sketch challenge on Try Stampin on Tuesday had been posted. I must admit, it’s a tricky one this week, and this is by no means the most favourite card I’ve ever made… but I know it will be appreciated for the thought that it is.
Here’s the sketch:
And here’s my card:
I feel like it needs something to bring it all ‘together’ – but I’m coming up blank. So this will suffice, and I’ll go and write some nice words on the card in the scallop envelope. See you later! xx
