Half a Century



This card uses a digi image for Mo's Digital Pencil
She is coloured using my promarkers
The card base and letters I designed and cut using my MTC software and Ecraft
The colours of the paper do not really show up but they are green polka dots
I used faux stitching around the letter and the border of the image
The sentiment I saw on a card on Dotty Jo's blog - Just A Dotty Pudding 
and thought it was perfect for my friends half a century birthday
Thanks Jo for the inspiration 


Today would also have been my Dad's 70th Birthday
So in his memory my mum, sisters, daughter and me
 went down to Dunge where he worked and released a balloon
and had some Wholenut Chocolate as that is what we brought him every year
Still miss him even after nearly 6 years but know he with us in many ways
Happy Birthday Dad

This card is for the following challenges:


Thanks for looking

Hi Nicky, Great card and love the fifty design on the top.
Glad you had a nice time remembering your Dad and I am sure he was looking down on you all.....maybe he was having a grumble though as he saw you all eating his favourite chocolate....lol
Sorry I have been missing so long, but thankfully things are easier now.
Thanks for joining us at Mo's too. xxxx
Hugs Mau xx
