A Birthday Card for a Friend

Good evening!

I did have a spark of creativity, though not much time, in October when I created a birthday card for our friend across the street. He is a big Harley fan, and he and his wife belong to a local bike club. I couldn't resist using this old photo that I had in my collection. Obviously I couldn't use any lace on this baby!

I love this old photo.
I wonder where these folks were going?

The papers and embellishment
were from Bo Bunny,
one of my favorite paper companies.
The rick rack is vintage stuff that
I bought on eBay a while ago...

I used a couple of rubber stamps.
I have so many, and rarely use them anymore.
And of course, while in the full swing of all of the
election hype,
I had to use a quote from Abe Lincoln.
They just don't make presidents like him anymore!...

The card was hand delivered all the way across the street,
so no address was needed!...

One of these days I think that I'll start making cards
and saving them to give to people instead of always
buying them.

Have a wonderful evening!
