A Card for Cliff

Hi again. Have you been watching the Olympics? I've only seen bits and pieces but I've heard our swimmers haven't been doing well. We've got a few men through the heats so hopefully they will be able to get their confidence back and do their best.
I would like to welcome new follower, Laine. Hope you will find something to interest you here.
I had choir practice tonight and didn't get home till after 10.30 p.m. I already had this card ready, so I've just been sitting watching a bit of tv to wind down a bit.
It is quite chilly here at the moment, we did have some sunshine earlier but the wind took away the heat - it was nice in the car though. My friend and I had craft with Shirley this morning and made 3 cards again. We used a free vintage image on one of the cards, a motorbike, so am going to have to go look for it and save. All the males in this family own at least one or two (or more, LOL) motorbikes and scooters. So bike images always are always handy.
Well, onto my card. This was made for a friend's hubby who celebrated a birthday today. I didn't have any stamps, so it will be a bit late. I hope he had a good birthday.
N.B. No designer papers were harmed in the making of this card, LOL.
