I'm Sooooo Dead!

The challenge over at Allsorts, who are celebrating their third birthday (Happy Birthday guys!) is Happy Birthday To Someone Special - perfect motivation for the card that I needed to get made.

My dear friend Jacquie will be 60 in four weeks time.  I'm safe to post this because she's on an aeroplane with her hubby on their way to the holiday of a lifetime in the USA, celebrating her birthday and their 40th Wedding Anniversary later in the year.

Now, hopefully Jacquie will have a sense of humour about this or I am soooo dead, and that will be the end of my lifts home from work!


Ingredients:  8x8 base card, Stamped Image  Mo Manning from Penny Black - Never Stop Dancing  Papers  Raspberry Road and First Editions  Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)  Extras  Cheery Lynn Small Flourish die, medium retro flower punch, Card Candi, Sentiments  Never Stop Dancing came with image, Happy Birthday is Hero Arts


I had terrible trouble with the DIs this afternoon, it's so hot in my craft space they were drying the second they hit the paper so it was really difficult to move them around and get them blended!  I'm not particularly happy with the end result and may, if the weather cools down between now and then, try and do it again.

Hugs, Sxx
