My husband will be 65 in a couple of weeks time, many years ago I bought him a cherished number plate for a birthday and decided to make his card reflect his age in the same style as a number plate, he has a great sense of humor so I hope he will appreciate it.

The challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is photo inspiration with the colour pink included, a colour I do not associate with Christmas and which I do not often use. My card only has a little pink in the border so I hope that is enough.

It's the most beautiful morning here in north-east Scotland, we had a hard frost overnight everything in the garden is covered in frost but the sun in shining. Hubby is going metal detecting for a couple of hours then we will go out to make an inroad into the Christmas gift list.
