Birthday card

Afternoon everybody's been the most up and down week of my life I think haha, loads of really good things, and really bad things happened this week, so I don't know whether to be happy or not lol. I got a new niece, she's so cute :) Isabel is her name. Not going into the rest, it's complicated and not so nice!

Anyway, I made a card on Saturday for my pilot friend, who's an absolute legend. He's one of my oldest friends and one of the nicest people on the planet! I made him a card for his 16th birthday lol, I think the new one is slightly better :P Here's the one I made him then:

The upside-down 21 is the runway heading at our local airport, it's not just random numbers lol.

And here's the one I made for him over the weekend. I saved it til today to put up, as Lili of the Valley are having a Birthday Blog Hop and Birthday Card Competition in honour of their 9th birthday! So this is the card I've entered in :)

I think Andrew was suitably impressed with my improvement over the years lol :)

  2. How fabulous to be able to make the comparison from then and now Tanya, but at least you kept the same theme going.

    I've got an absolute fear of flying and only do it when we really really have two. Despite also having a friend who the pilot with Virgin, he's never been able to alleviate my fear, hence I far prefer a cruise boat and would you believe we always go out to the Mediterranean by train to get on the boat if not sailing from Southampton.
