Vernon's Birthday Card and Tatted Eagle

Tomorrow is Vernon's (Husband) Birthday, I have made a card based on something I gave him when he was 60.
I gave him a surprised birthday party, he had been made redundant and then got a job which he hated and left about 6 weeks before his birthday. He felt he would never get another job, but after six months he got a job and hopefully he will be there for another year. I brought the singing dog with a frame that as he sings it moves and sings "When I'm 64 will you still love me"
For the card I used the flipping teenager images, he told me he had a beetle coat but his mother would not let him have a beetle hair cut. I put a sheet of black card with greetings written all over it at the back, I was going to use a 60's print but the paper was not large enough. I put a little phase at the bottom in several different colours "Now you are 64 will you still love me". Then finished off with gold peel offs.

This is a picture of the dog I gave him.

I found this pattern last week of a tatted eagle from
Vernon is into country music and Eagles, so I hope he will like it. I have framed it with a picture of the Grand Canyon behind it.

Next year he will be retiring, something for me to look forward to, only I will still have another 5 years of work before I retire.
I hope you have enjoyed my blog and look forward to seeing you again in blog land. In the meantime I hope you are keeping well and take care
