Richard's 60th Birthday Card

Morning folks.  Mixed here today, sun one minute overcast the next.  Fingers crossed it will not rain.  Hope it doesn't rain on Thursday as hubby and I are going on a guided coach tour to the Cotswold's.  My card today was a request from one of the ladies in my apartment block.  I made a card for her Daughter's 60th in June and she was thrilled, so she has asked me to do one for her Son in Law.  Glad I do something right.  Lol!!!

He has two interests, he is a football ref and also a cricket umpire.  I couldn't find an image for a cricket umpire so did a comical cricket player.  I did find a series of umpire signals so used that as the embellishment. I suppose it would have been better to do it the other way round but I have only just thought of that.  Lol!!!  If I had a brain I would be dangerous.  Anyway I have just popped it up to the lady and she was happy.
