Well … it is kinda bittersweet to have another birthday … cos Gav has hit the big “5” “0”!!! 🙂 My gift to Gav was money to buy a surfboard … and my wider family put together to buy a “steamer” (wet suit) … so he is all set to go surfing with Skye & Sandy!
If you would like a “visual” of how I created the background for this card … here it is! I have included details about the sponging on my card recipe. It looks impressive … but it really is quite easy! The sun was created with a circle mask with a torn “bottom”.
So … my birthday card was appropriate for his gifts … and I did enjoy having an idea to work with! After I took the photos of this card … I did add a black “50” in the bottom right corner. It will be nice to sit on the beach and watch him enjoy his pressies! An enforced break from his busy life! Well … can’t linger! Stuff to do! We are going out tonight to the Steakhouse for Gav’s birthday … so that will be a nice night out! (All the kids & Bree!) C U soon! Hugs xx
