Rons Birthday card and up date on blanket

Hello everyone.
I can now show you the card I made for Rons birthday as it was last Friday and he has seen it now,
I used 250GSM card.
Glued a piece of siver card to it. then a piece of gold.
Then came a piece of  160 card from the Kanban Industriana paper pad. There is some lovely papers in there. I have the one  I used and the Mechanica
I then with foam pads attacted the topper. I love the saying on it. It says "We don't remember the days just the moments."

The blanket I am crocheting is coming along nicely. I am doing 12 inch squares and I need 54. I have not finished 41 so not many to go now. I have also started to sew it together. Boy is it going to be bright lol. I have done  some of the top and one strip down the side that I have folded up so I could get it in the pictures. I am also sewed together the strip for the other side and will attact it when I have done the others for the top.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and any comments you leave I love reading them.

What a really lovely card Lilian. I bet Lovely Ron was chuffed to bits (and I bet you were too :oD). Your blanket is looking lovely. Shamefully, my squares are still sat waiting for me to do something with them. I really must sew them together. Lx
