Birthday Bonanza

Hi Guys,

I can't believe it is so long between posts. I sat down the other week and started a post in order to show you the cards I made for Mum's b'day, only to realise that I (shock, horror) forgot to take any photos of the cards I made her. Will have to go & take some. I have had two lots of only 2 days off this roster (which, when doing night duty really means only 1 full day off and 2 where you are at work for part of it) and with all my party plans, have had zero time to blog.

I have, however, been making some cards & projects for the 10 July/August birthdays amongst my friends and family, including three having 30th b'days in August. Busy time but lots of fun events.

This card is one I made for my mate who lives in Tamworth. Jenny is 44 but young at heart. No-one would ever think she was beyond her 30's. I really liked this sketch from an Inkspirations challenge designed by Cindy Major and this is the 2nd time that I've used it (see last post for the 1st card).

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

I hope she liked it.

Must go and get ready for work.
Have a great weekend,

Love Fi xox
