HERE IS A CARD I DIDN'T MAKE!!

Just a short post, to share these photos of my FIL's 100th birthday celebration last Saturday. I had never seen a 100th card from Her Majesty before, and probably not a lot of people have, so thought you might like to see one!! (Don't think it's handmade though)!!
Below is the front of the card!
The huge yummy cake was made by the lovely Lisa - we met in blogland a few months ago, and surprise surprise, she lives not very far from me! Pop over  to her beautiful Blog and leave her some lurve!
And last but by no means least - here is my FIL, enjoying his party! Not bad for 100 and he's still going strong (in fact his memory is better than mine)!!!
Hugs to everyone - Sylvia xxxx

WoW! I would love to hear some of his stories! Can you imagine the experience ? (well you don't have to! lol) But you know, in this last century so much has changed, he's seen an awful lot.
Thanks for the peak at the card. I've heard about them (my hubby is British)but never seen one before.TFS

Hi Sylvia
How lovely to put a face to the name at last. He's a very handsome chap, your FIL and amazing at 100. I'm so glad you all had a great day and the weather didn't spoil the party. The cake looks great with it's candles, even if I do say so myself. Thanks so much for the mention, I'm glowing!!! but honestly I'm just so glad your were pleased with it, it was a real honour to make it.
Thanks for sharing the special card, I bet there aren't so many people who've seen one like you say, I certainly haven't.
Keep warm and hope to see you very soon.
Hugs Lisax

He looks really great for being a 100 and proud as punch to get a card from the Queen I'm sure. Looks like a wonderful party Sylvia and no doubt he was thoroughly enjoying all the attention. The card is awesome and thanks for sharing. It will definately be a family treasure and keepsake. "Hugs" Carol

Hi Hun, wow you wouldn't think he was a hundred, love the cake too,
My fade edge is on a freebie program called paint net off the web, it's how I put my signature on my cards as well, it's similar to photo shop but free!! lol, you can do all sorts with it but I'm not that clever he he,

have fun! hugs Liz xx
