My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

5 October 2011

A Commissioned Card

Evening peeps - well it's a very wet and windy evening here in the Midlands, hope it's been better where you are today.

Firstly I would like to wish my Step Daughter Danielle a very Happy 15th Birthday.  She was round yesterday evening so she opened her cards and gifts a day earlier and we had a Birthday cake too!  Unfortunately it's not a very good picture as we are in the process of decorating our lounge and everything looks really dark and depressing in there at the moment!

Now onto my card which I was asked to make by one of my friends who lives in the same road for a lady who she works with who is celebrating her 65th Birthday.  It's an 8" x 8" card as it needed to be big enough to have 30 people writing inside it!  I also decorated the inside to compliment the front (not shown).

Card Ingredients:

Dovecraft Tea House Papers
Trimcraft Cardstock
PM Gems
Penny Black Brush Lillies Stamp
Stampin Up Inks: Cameo Coral & Old Olive
Anita's Peel off Greeting & Number Coloured with Promarkers
X-Cut Scallop Punch
