Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #60: Elderly People!

This picture was taken in Haddenham England in 2006. This is my brother in law Ian...... and if you can believe it, this sign is for real. Well, Ian is going to celebrate his 65Th birthday on May 21st. So I thought I had better get cracking and make him a Birthday card.

So this is what I came up with!


Ready to get into shape?


This weeks challenge at Fantabulous Cricut.
is to use not just one shape....but two. You must use a triangle and a rectangle.
Next challenge I will enter is Creative Sisters Monday Challenge #8:


anything Birthday.




The card is 5X5. This awesome twine can be purchased from My Craft Spot.




Cricut cartridges used were: Disney Cars and George and Basic Shapes
I found the verse on the internet and used my printer and white cardstock.




I sure hope Ian likes the card, and finds the humor in it!
Happy Birthday Ian and here's to another 65!

This is just great Jenny - Ian will love it. And just to let everyone know - Jenny created the card before she ever saw the picture! When she was telling me about the card, I laughed and told her I had taken a picture of my hubby in front of a sign just like she described to me. XXX
