Vernon's Dad 80th Birthday Card.


Today is Vernon's Dad 80th Birthday, we had a party last Saturday as Becky (Dads Grand daughter) was going back to Tanzania for 9 weeks working. It was a lovely party with many of the family and friends. Dee did a beautiful spread and the cake I ordered on the Internet arrived on time, and I must say it was a lovely cake.
Back to the card, I made this parchment card to my own design, I put a blue footballer for Chelsea which is the football club Dad supports. The motorbike peel off in gold was like the one he had when Vernon was a little boy and two chickens also in peel offs because they had chickens in the garden when they lived at Batcombe in Somerset, they moved there when Vernon was seven years. I wanted a card that brought something from years ago. I did a simple design in embossing and perforating. I don't think this was my best effort and took me about five hours to do.
At the moment with mother in hospital I don't seem to have any time. I p
ut a blue sheet of paper behind the parchment sheet and used a blue ribbon down the side, the ribbon is from Joanna Sheen's online shop.

I know those who regularly visit my blog must be wondering, Vernon was 65 year old last November and here's his Dad 80 years old today, Vernon is his step son and has been since he was three years old, so hes the only Dad Vernon has known.

Well I hope hes had a lovely day and here's to the next twenty years because he says he going to live to be one hundred and wants a telegram from the Queen............ could be King Charles by then.

Update on my Mother she goes into a Nursing home today, on the next post I will tell you all about it.

I hope you are all keeping well and until we meet again take care
