Two 60th birthdays...

I have two very wonderful peeps with birthdays this week. 
My gorgeous, perfect daughter-in-law's parents both have their special days - one tomorrow and one next week.

Margie is a little dynamo of a lady - only 4' 8" and a size eight but she is a force to be reckoned with! I wish I had half of her energy!

For Dani's Mum, Margie I played it straight with a pretty, floral card in lilac, purple and white.




For her Dad Bill 'the Builder', I was a bit cheeky - he does like a laugh and will take it from me in good humour!





The brilliant image is a Jak Heath image from Just Inklined

I also made a mini-card for the inside with a lickle verse in it.....



I hope they like them - well, I know they will because they're lovely peeps who appreciate the effort put into handmade cards.

I've entered Margie's card into the Allsorts challenge for this week as she is definitely 'A Lady'.

I've entered Bill's card into Crafty Cardmakers challenge because he has a gadjet - his souped up zimmer frame! LOL!

  3. These are fabulous, each in its own way. Love the elegance of the ladies card and the humour of the male. Both are wonderfully designed.

    1. Thank you so much Laine - that means a lot! I've had quite an enforced hiatus from my crafting for some time and I'm so chuffed to be getting back into it.
