Male 40th Birthday

Hi everybody. Well what a change in the weather today. It rained quite heavily in the night (best time in my book) but it is very overcast. Definitely no cycling today - give the old legs a rest. Not to mention the backside!

My Card

First of let me apologise for the appalling picture. My card was made in a great rush so that John could post it on his way to his GP appointment. I took the photos but didn't check them until it was too late. It is extremely dark and overcast here today but because of the mirri card I think using flash would probably have been worse. I used black card stock to form a 5x7 base card which I matted with gold mirri and then another layer of black. The topper is Kanban  - one of The Mechanical Marvels. The black and gold cogs are also Kanban. 

Hope you are all well and enjoying some sunshine.

Love and hugs from Christine xx
