I have been asked for quite a number of 80th birthday cards recently, perhaps because I posted the card I made for my own dad a few weeks ago. This dad, below, is a Manchester City F.C. fan. He also likes cricket and follows Lancashire Cricket Club. He enjoys playing Bridge, in his retirement he helps to run a local charity second hand bookshop, whilst his working life involved shoes. Finally I added the crest of the college he attended in his youth, Brasenose College, Oxford.My customer was very happy with the card, as it seems was her dad.
"Just to let you know the card you made was a great success. My father was touched by all the details on it, especially the Brasenose College crest. Thanks so much from a very satisfied customer and a very happy recipient."
tartan from the photo she sent me of her dad), a sports car, a bottle of whiskey and some books. She also asked me to add some big headphones and some music notes since her dad very much enjoys listening to classical music. A big number 80 finished the card off nicely.
The greeting on this card says "Happy 80th Birthday Zeide". Zeide is Yiddish for "grandfather".
