A special card!

Good morning dear bloggers!


I am trying to be a good blogger again :-) so I am showing you a special card today - it might not look so special but it is! Now I have a question! Have any of you girls ever made a card for someone who is 106 years old???? I bet you haven't! Well I have had the honor to make a card for one of our professors who was a forester and has celebrated his 106th birthday! I kept it quite simple, the sentiment says poeticaly,
"he has been listening to the forests growing for 106 years"....

Here is my card....



Here is a close up! I used TH DI broken china, vintage photo and walnut stain, the stamp is TH fir trees and the letters are from a Decorative strip Typeset Alphabet! Sticking those letters on was a very looooong process! But I made it! The twine and deer is from my stash!



Ok thats my Monday episode - stay tuned for the Tuesday one - I will show our finished (painted) retaining wall outside the library !
Have a lovely Monday and a good week!
Lots of hugs to all of you,
Cardarian

  3. 106?!? blimey. Amazing. And I have to say I just love seeing text in other languages. It always looks so much more like a design element than simply words. all in all a lovely card that I'm sure will be much appreciated.

    Happy WOYWW!
