1 January 2014

Thrifty at Fifty!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY CRAFTY FRIENDS!


I hope you all had a lovely evening and enjoyed the celebrations.  Me and Hubby had a quiet night in and watched the fireworks and Big Ben on the BBC!

Firstly before I get onto my card, I just want to say a big "thank you" for all your support, friendship and lovely comments last year, they really do mean a lot to me.

So onto today's card - I made this for my Sister when she celebrated her 50th Birthday at the beginning of December:


Card Ingredients:

Saturated Canary Blanche Stamp
Promarkers
First Edition Boho Chic Papers
American Crafts Ribbon
Pearls from Stash
Liquid Pearls
Spellbinders Die

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

And a reminder that I am having a craft room clear out - lots of goodies being sold and more being added daily, so take a look here for some bargains.

Thanks for visiting today - always lovely to have you here.
