Birthday Card for my Father in Law

Evening, hope you have had a great weekend :-)

This morning started with a bit of a shock, with my hubby asking where his Dad's birthday card was... errr... but his birthday's next week, it says so on the calendar!!  Apparently not, I'd written it on the wrong date... duh!!  Fortunately I had already coloured up the Lily of the Valley image I was going to use, but only had 10 minutes to make the card from scratch, so it was a bit of a push!!

Here's what I ended up with - not brilliant, but OK for 10 minutes (and that included cutting, sticking, writing the inside and getting it into the envelope!!) :-)  I want to find some old OS maps to use with this image as think they will work a treat, but not having one to hand I had to settle for some travel papers from my stash

In my hurry I didn't stamp a sentiment, but my father in law liked it anyway :-)

I'd like to enter this card for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge

Thanks for stopping by
