Good Evening

I am blessed to have lovely neighbours John and his wife Mal. John is 70 tomorrow so I made a simple card for him. I spied this photo of him a few weeks ago when I was over at his house and 'borrowed it and scanned it!' After a bit of photo repair on my computer getting all the scratches off it looked as good as new. This is a picture of John when he was a young Naval Officer. I thought he looked a bit like Gene Kelly! I found this gorgeous metal ships wheel in my stash added a jump ring and hung it from the photo which I backed on to silver mirri card. Font is dragonwick. Hope he likes it! Happy Birthday John!

Julie, You did a remarkable job on this card, and had to restore the photo too... I love the charm, just perfect for this card. You are so talented my friend. I know he will just flip over this one! Happy Birthday to your neighbor, he is blessed to have you for his good friend and neighbor. TFS
