Birthday Card


This is a card that I did tonight for this weekend. Ken's Uncle Ian is turning 80 and we are going up to his home for a big birthday bash! I was really happy with it until I decided it would be a good idea to doodle the checkered border and add some dots for definition. It is still an ok card but I only wish I had stopped myself before I got to the doodling stage. Thanks for looking girls.....

OH? I like the doodling Shirl! It really draws your eye in. Great colours - a male card is always such a challenge!
Hugs, Danielle

Oh thanks so much Danielle... the more I look at it the better it seems so maybe I was just over reacting... xo S

Thanks Caz. I is growing on me slowly but surely. Now all I have to do is get Ken to write in it tonight and find a pressie for Uncle Ian. xo S
