70th Birthday card

Hi Everyone, Today is bright cloudy and very cold, we have been lucky and not had the snow that most of the country have been experiencing, if you are one of those people I hope you are safe and warm.

I have been so busy with card making, I wish I was like Vicky here making her 3 minute fabulous cards, mine take 2 or 3 hours at least and can take a lot more with the digital designing I do first, one I did last week took me an hour just cutting the elements out, but you'll have to wait to see that :)

I saw this post and it certainly made me think, what do you think?

"I do it, because it gives me pleasure, because I relax, and forget all the hardships of the day. And it doesn't matter to me, if I am good-in other people's mind... I am sure, that there are people who are much better! Good for them!!!  But, I am also proud of what I do too) I should remember that!
Why do you do it?"
 


Anyhow on to today's card, it's got papers A Day to Celebrate - Boys by Katie Creates all the embellishments are also from the kit. I have used them before on cards I have posted, but they come out so beautifully for a male card I can't resist them.  The digi stamp is from Digi Darla "Gramps", again it's such a useful image that I have used a few times.  I have layered "Gramps" and the bunting.
