Growing old is gonna happen....growing up is optional!!

Hi all, hope you're all having a great week, its been a busy week at work for me so not had a lot of time to blog, have been making quite a few cards though, as we have been doing a bit of fundraising for Epilepsy Awareness, so I have left a box of cards in our canteen, and have so far sold quite a few and got a couple of orders....yay!

Did want to share one card with you, and that is a birthday card I made for one of my very good friends at work, who turned 40 this week, and as a recent recriut to the 40's club myself, it is a standing joke between us that just 'cause we're getting older, we're not ready to get too old yet, lol. The quality of the photo is a bit pants, but as we're not really enjoying the best light at the moment that is unsurprising!
I have used:
- LOTV image coloured with promarkers
- Blue dotty paper from Bo Bunny, have had the yellow flowery one in my stash for ages (it was given to me as an 8 x 8 piece and I have tried to use smallish amounts at a time to last it out 'cause its so pretty!!!)
- Border die is from Cheery Lynn
- own sentiment, font is Tempus sans
- twine is from dovecraft (found it in wilko's the other day, when I nipped in to get washing powder and a new tin opener!!!)
- also, buttons and flowers from my stash

Happy to report that she thought it was wonderful!
