Commission 80thBirthday card


Another beautiful day although I little chilly here in Somerset, I had my day made for me yesterday when I received a lovely e-mail from my pen Friend in the US,

Lou works in the Pentagon and has been there for nearly two years again, Last time she was in the Pentagon it was on 9/11 day I knew when I heard them say on the news that the Pentagon was hit that she was in there, but she was fine and not hurt, I say again as since I have meet her she has been in there working at least three times and then sent to other bases around the US. She was due to come over to our wedding but her leave was cancelled and she never made it, I was upset but the Navy is her job and who can argue with the US Navy. Shes on the move again and had a look at my blog last night, I hope her move will go well and that this move will be her last as I am sure she must be getting fed up of moving every two years.

Now to my commissioned card, I was asked to make an 80th Birthday. He has family and often goes to the US and I was asked to give it an American theme.

I have done a swing card with images of Salt Lake City where he visits. One is a view of Salt Lake City from a distance and the other is a tram in the city, not sure where in the city. I use blue pearlescent card and cut the shape out myself with silver peel offs to finish off the corners and sides.

I hope he likes his card.

Many thanks for visiting my blog and hope you will come and see me again.

Enjoy the lovely weather while we have it and have a nice day.

Hugs Margaret
