Today's card is for my next door neighbor who is turning 85 next week.  I added the word print along the bottom so he could read it rather than covering it up. I think he will get a kick out of the definition of Playfellow. It says for children or young people and he is that at 85! He recently had a stroke and is an avid golfer so I'm hoping he will be able to get back out and play this spring. I am entering this card in the challenge at Colourq. Their colors are red and black and a neutral with newsprint.  Be kind to one another.

You really rocked the ColourQ challenge with this adorable card, Brenda! What a fun and practical idea to put the newsprint at the bottom and to have it be that definition! I hope he recovers and gets back to his game! Hugs, Darnell

It's amusing, cute & totally well designed. I'm sure he will get lots of joy at your handling of his special sport, and how clever to leave the print at the bottom to make it easy for him to read. You are a very sweet neighbor! Happy Birthday to him as well. Take care. Hugs (got some nice compliments on your pretty card too!- it's on the cards by friends page). TFS
