65 Years Young

I quite often get asked to make cards by family members and boy did my brother Michael come up with a corker on Thursday.

He wanted me to make a card for a friend of his called Bob, who will be 65 next week and the brief was Bob the Builder or something to do with scaffolding because that’s his job.

At first I panicked but after the initial terror subsided I started to have a little search on the web and came up with a kids colouring page of Bob the Builder standing on scaffolding……perfect!

The card was put together using the latest sketch from Sketch By Carly.

To continue with the building theme I decided bob looked as if he was guiding something up to where he is standing, so I’ve made it look like the number 6 is being pulled up on a chain by a crane and the 5 is already fixed to the wall.
