66 Clickety Clicks

Hello to all my crafting friends,

Tomorrow is a very special day for John, my darling husband of 41 years and 1 week. 
It is his birthday, and I am not giving out prizes for guessing how old he will be. 
I don't know why I chose a gambling theme for his card, as he doesn't
even buy lottery or lotto tickets, let alone gamble on racing, or poker machines.
Perhaps it's because in my book, he is a winner, an ace! 
I love that paper that looks like real cork. I have had it for about 4 years.
I really must use up some of my massive collection of great papers.

Challenges I would like to enter:-
Here Come The Boys #56 - 'Anything Goes'
Card Makin' Mamas #72 - 'Monochromatic'
Sweet Pea Stampers - 'For The Men/Boys'
Challenges 4 Everybody - 'Anything Goes'
Dominoart #5 - 'Altered Game Board'
Ladybug Crafts Ink - 'Birthday'
Crafts 4 Eternity - 'Rust' WINNER

Bingo Card - Crafts 4 Eternity freebie digi (thank you)
Ticket greeting - Digi Doodle Shop freebie (DDS now closed)
Paper - Print Blocks Cork
Dies - Spellbinders Classic Square, deleted Fleur de Lis Square (very old)
Distress Inks - Frayed Burlap, Walnut
Alphabet & Number Stamps - $2 chain store
Domino Tile, Jigsaw Piece, Playing Cards, all from my junk stash

I really must go and light the fire. It is freezing cold. 

Until next time, thank you for visiting,
Jennifer. x
