Hello to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.
  Just a quick listing from me today as I am chasing my tail again. 
Wednesday is my lovely husbands 66th Birthday, where did the years go? 
 I met him nearly 40 years ago and we have been married most of that time.  

 I have this afternoon made his Birthday Cake while he was being taken to the Cinema by my younger daughter to see a movie of his choice.  We will celebrate tomorrow and both of our daughters, partners etc will be round in the evening, so a lovely family day.

I was so pleased when Mayzy of MayzyArt provided this fabulous freebie because it is perfect for  his Birthday Card and I know will make him laugh.

List of Material used to make this card:

Wonderful image from MayzyArt found here.   Coloured using my Promarker Pens and detailed in pencil.
Spellbinder Dies and Tim Holtz Cogs.  Joy craft leaves, these are fabulous.
Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante detail.
Metal Heart Charm, embellishments and flowers from my stash.
The inside of the card will be personalised.
Base card is 6" x 6" and designer papers are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

Sending good wishes to you all. 

Hugs from

What a wonderful card for your husband! You've got paper cut elements, steampunk metal and die cuts and it makes your card look so coooool! When I try and do the same I only get a messy look. Well, we all got different talents - just wished I had your ability to put everything together to create a fantastic design! That's a compliment for you:)
