Happy Birthday


Christmas cards came to a halt while I made a special card for a special lady. I used the Art Impression stamp who are brilliant with grown up images. I paper pieced her outfit to match the patterned paper in the card.

The balloon are some really old dies which I have no idea whose but most companies make a balloon die. I think the numbers are Memory Box but I need a really small set of numbers which I will be on the search for.

Flowers are a die I randomly brought somewhere but the centres are circle punches and the sentiment is a Simon Says Stamp.


Happy Big 70 Birthday Christine.



The birthday girl is wearing the sunglasses and the other lady is my other SIL, I thought I would show this layout here so it doesn't pop up on my timeline on FB. I can't remember the occasion but I do know that neither have worn the dress again!

What a great card...she is such fun!! I have always had a fear of turning up to an event and find I am wearing the same outfit as someone else, how funny that this happened to your SIL xx

Fab fun card, love her paper pieced skirt.
I turned up to a wedding recently wearing exactly the same outfit as the bride's aunt! Haven't worn the dress since either ;)
