Birthday canvas..and a card

Last week was my ex-husband's 70th Birthday and I thought the occasion deserved marking! Ages ago when with one of my sons we saw an ordnance survey map of the area where he was brought up - straight away we saw it's potential! Hubby and I were invited to the party! It's ok - we often have family gatherings with his new family and our shared children - very civilised! 
Anyway, I tried to incorporate his hobbies(Field archery, swimming, cycling) along with a history of where he had lived to date! 
 A bit of stencilling(Andy Skinner's Tyre tracks to represent Landrover tyres - his first owned vehicle)and plenty of woodland stamps and stencils, some ribbon and some arrows and feather from Primark! I'm pretty sure he liked it!
I made him a card too!
It was a great party and great to see old faces for a catch up!

Thanks for looking, Chris

What a lovely celebration of your ex-husband's enthusiasms, and a really personal, thoughtful gift. Great card too!

That is so wonderful that you are friendly with your ex, so often it is the opposite. I bet he loved your art work and card the canvas is such a great idea Pat xx
