Friday Sketchers #62

My boss has a birthday in a couple of weeks and I decided to use this week's sketch at Friday Sketchers to make a birthday card for him. The paper is from a K & Company designer pak. I used the old time car on the My World Cricut cartridge and used some Tea Dye Distress Ink to give it a more distressed or vintage look. Then completed it with a few buttons and a strip of grosgrain ribbon.

My boss and I are of the same Baby Boomer generation, although I think I have a "couple" of years on him. With that in mind, the verse that I used on the inside of the card says "Birthdays are good for you, the more you have, the longer you live."

I've got to spend a little time tonight straightening and putting up paper supplies in my craft room so I have space to work on machine embroidery and sewing projects. Plan to devote most of my time the next week or so working in that medium. So I may or may not be posting cards for a few days.

Luck, love and laughter,
