I persuaded hubby to give me some cash towards it but didn't tell him full cost....poor man would have passed out lol.

    A 70th birthday card

    I've not been a very good blogger but I have a good excuse been to visit my gorgeous grandsons.
    I did manage to make this pretty card for my friend's 70th. It is a sheet from Card Making Downloads
    by Janet Briggs you can find it here. I found the card very easy to put together and is lovely when made.

    First Post

                             At last I've managed to post. I made this card for my friend's birthday.

    The image is one of my favourite lili of the valley stamps. I coloured it with my Prisma pencils.
    The papers are bearly mine. Flowers are Joy dies I bought at a craft show last year.
    I am hoping to enter this in my first challenge ( fingers crossed as I 'm not sure how to do it)
