Our French exchange student arrived safely on Saturday to spend the week with us (before my son heads to Lyon to spend a week with him and his family in March). He's a lovely boy, very easy to look after - and thankfully with good English! He and my son seem to be getting on very well - lots of football, computer games, etc. We had 11 here for tea on Saturday (why do I do these things?) with another family and their French student - but we had a good evening (along with the England v France rugby match on!). Then all out on Sunday! I'll need a holiday myself by the end of this week lol!
Anyway, the result is I don't seem to have had much time for crafting or anything else! But I did have a request for an 80th birthday card for a colleague's father-in-law and she wanted tartan or a Scottish theme so I came up with this!
The papers are from LOTV, as are the stamps. I've added some stitching and die cuts leaves. The '80' was made with a die cut circle and some peel-offs, not something I use very often but they are useful occasionally!
So quite a simple card - but she seemed to like it!
I will try to visit everyone in Blogland soon - but my free time seems to be at a bit of a premium this week lol! Hey ho! But I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your lovely comments - they really mean so much.
