It's getting closer......

....... 3 followers to go - how exciting :0)

As I said in my earlier post it was John's 50th birthday on Tuesday and as promised here are his cards....we had a lovely day - a nice lazy lunch in one of our favourite restaurants, and friends for a Chinese takeaway in the evening......

A friend made (and I paid for !!) him 50 cupcakes - they were absolutely fabulous.....

The birthday boy !!!

Here is the card I made from Lewis and Eleanor
- using a brand new image from LCI Through the Ages

a closer view

a sneaky peek at the inside

and the card I made from me

here is the little poem I wrote for him !! - it is said like 'Roses are Red....'

and a sneaky peek at the inside

I'm sure the celebrations will go on for many weeks - it's not every year you reach a milestone is it ???!!!!????
Thank you for stopping by and if you are not already a follower don't forget I only need 3 more followers for one lucky person to receive all 50 pieces of candy.....
