Happy Saturday...

.... ooh its been lovely here today - so me and t'other half have been for a walk from Captain Cooks Monument to Roseberry Topping it was lovely bit tiring but still enjoyed it - it was lovely to get out for some fresh air.

Back to blog hopping and card making now though while hubby watches real life hospital programmes on tv - not my cup of tea!!

Anyhoo, here is a recent card I made for one of my best friends who turns 40!  I tried really hard not to mention her age but didnt succeed lol.

The image is Ladybug crafts coloured with promarkers and lots of fine glitter added to the cake.  The papers are new from MME from a recent facebook win at My Mums Craft shop - ooh I love them! Matted onto grey card. The banner die is a new purchase too from Joanna Sheen another new love!!!  The sentiment is just one I printed and cut.

I would like to enter this into:

Totally Gorjuss - Happy Birthday
Divas by design - make it sparkle
I love promarkers - use dies but no punches
Stampin for the weekend - sparkle and shine

Thanks for looking

  5. I love that card, the bunting is so cute! The papers are lovely too, what a fab prize. I did the Roseberry Topping walk with my hubby and children last summer. I loved going up but I come from the Fens and am not used to hills so coming down gave me a stress migraine as it was sooo high! I lost my vision and had to come down with my eyes closed holding onto my husband. The children thought they were going to pass out laughing.....!
