70th Birthday Card

Good morning everyone I hope that everyone is well and  having a good week The frost and snow have gone but today we are back to that awful rain I hate winter . Never mind it does give me more time to craft so at least that's a bonus.
You will remember a couple of weeks ago we went to Spain for a week to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday so today I'm sharing the card I made to give him. He had a lovely Birthday our friends made it very special.

  1. We too have the dreadful rain again Carole and like you I do not like Winter at all and it's seems never ending, in part I guess because Spring and Summer never quite happened last year.

    It's a gr eat card for your hubby and very much like the design with the arrows.
