2 Birthday cards

Good morning you all! Another week has begun. Yesterday I was intending to do lots of crafting, but then I was at my neighbour's for a long time, helping getting things packed and sorted again, and then he kindly treated us to some spicy chicken and a Pizza, so we had a nice break feeding ourselves full and washing it down with white wine, and by the time I got back to my apartment it was 5 p.m. and I NEEDED a big cup of coffee. Thus fortified, I was able to do my my two cards which have been commissioned. One is for a lady, who will be 75, and the other for her husband, who will be 89 (the number is on the number plate). The car has been cut from a dark grey miri-card, pity that the shine is not showing up here! Was fun making the cards!










Today I will be taking a lot of things we have sorted out to the charity shop near here, I think I will have the car completely full, and I am sure they will be happy to get such a lot of good things. 
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for coming by!
