70th Birthday Card

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers I hope that you are all well and  keeping warm I just hate the winter weather I'm definitely a sunshine girl.
On  New Years Day it was my friend Lyn's 7oth birthday and this is the card I gave her. She lives part of the time in Malta and I gave her the card before Christmas to take back with her. I spoke to her today on the phone and it reminded me I hadn't put it on my blog. She did say the weather was lovely in Malta so I was a bit jealous.
My card is using a Lili of the Valley stamp Time Flies one of my favourites .

I love the vintage feel of this card and the way it says you are special. It would have been a surprise if she did not like it. It is a Beauty. Tell hubby I said happy birthday. - Jim
