An 80th Birthday Card

Ive managed to make another card.   My friend asked me to make a card for her cousin who is 80 on the 7th November, she was anxious to get it in the post before the dreaded postal strikes.   I used one of the Pixie downloads from Charmed crafts.  The sketch I used is a recent one from Sketch Saturday I think but I didnt enter it into the challenge cos I was too late.  I used my nesties to make the scalloped mounts but unfortunately my camera has made the mirror card glare a bit.  I coloured her in with my prismas and used glitter on her wings.    

I hope to get some more cards done after I come back off holiday.   Going easy on the decorating for the rest of the week.    Ive had a dreadful bad back, caused by a muscle strain, which I did by hula hooping on my daughters Wii Fit, shant be doing that one again.   Its much better than it was though.

Thank you for looking

Nearly Back from the Crafting Wilderness

Bet you all thought I'd gone for good.   Nooooooo, I do stop by most days to look at your lovely blogs.   Ive been busy decorating my house since I went part time in July so my time has been taken up with this.   Ive done my daughters room and my sons room and Im now on with doing the bathroom.  I had a card to do for my friend and her husband who have been married for 20 years.   Its one of the Charmed Craft downloads, not one of my best cards, I got stuff a bit skew wiffed but at least Ive done some crafting.    Hope to be back with more cards soon.
