Happy 80th Birthday

Good evening everyone,

I am back from my travels, unpacked and ready to get crafty again! Just spent the last hour rearranging my craft room with the addition of more storage. You can never have too many tubs, drawers, holders etc can you? lol  Anyway, before i start i just want to show you a little card i made for my Mum to give to her friend who is turning 80 very soon. Ok, enough from me for now, inshAllah i will be back tomorrow.  I have just bought some Magnolia stamps and cant wait to use them!


Cream & orange cardstock
My Mind's Eye paper pack - A blink of an eye
Tonic studio butterfly punch
EK Success border punch
Tim Holtz distress ink - walnut stain
Flowers from stash which i distressed and assembled using dimensionals and buttons from stash
'friend to friend' sentiment from Stampin UP!
Sentiment from PC
Ribbon from stash
