Hello fellow bloggers,
Last Monday it was John's birthday, and he won't mind me telling you that he was 65 y.o., which means he is now officially an O.A.P. (Old Aged Pensioner). Oh dear, where is that baby-faced, skinny young man I married just on 40 years ago. Mind you, while he is no longer skinny, he is by no means a 'Roly-Poly', just a cuddly bunny.
That's enough embarrassment for him.....This is the card I made for him before we went to New Zealand, then hid it so well, I had to think very hard about where it was when we came back....who should be the O.A.P. I can hear you all saying.
I loved this stamp as soon as I saw it on the Penny Black site & had intended ordering it from my local shop, when John walked into our office, saw the image on the screen, and said "you have to buy that one". Well, what does a girl do when her fella tells her to spend money????
The stamp arrived in the middle of the Queen's Jubilee celebrations, so I used the bunting paper, my most regal border punch, and red, white and blue cardstock. I also added a touch of gold.
It is basically a very simple card, and didn't take very long to make at all.
