50th Birthday card


Well I had a fab crafting afternoon yesterday  making a gift for one of Shannen's friends and a card too.  Why do I always leave things until the day before.  Mad I know, yet the ideas just came flowing which is always the case when I'm under pressure........  I give up.  Today I've actually sat down and checked our accounts and done my spreadsheets - I like to keep an eye on the money.  Another reason is I'm popping into town with Shannen tomorrow so if I see anything nice I can treat us - now that's what I call good planning!!!  Here's a card I made for a 50th birthday that my daughter was going to with her Nana:
 Now what did I use: my all time favourite cdrom - Double sprinkles of kraft(Polkadoodles) took the numbers image into My craft studio and re-sized, freebie papers from my last Papercraft essentials, Nellies Multi frame die, english rose die, faux stitching - fine liner,  gems and hunkydory sentiment.
