"A Gentleman`s Card"

Hello Blog friends...............yet another New Week in Blogland.   Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Thank you very much for calling by, I love having you here and for always joining me on my crafty journey.
I have said this before, what fascinates me is when I click by Blog I can see the number of visits I have had in a day compared with the number of comments.   The other day I had 99 visits and 22 comments ............who and where are all those others?????  Not that I am particularly looking for more comments I am just curious as to who those others are.  
Better stop, you know that old saying.................  "Curiosity Killed the Cat"

The lady in the village who gets me to make most of her cards asked if I could make one for a "Gentleman".  He will be 85 but he is a "Real Gentleman" always very smart and likes everything just right.  Thankfully this time she gave me a week to think about it, normally it`s a couple of hours.

Here is my card, rather simple, she was delighted so I am happy with that.

Base card approx 5 x 7 cream card 
Tan coloured card for the border and matt.  I ran a Gold Pen along the edge of these rather than add another matt

Sentiment done on the computer

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping in I really appreciate it
