Something different and a little bit special!

Hello, my friends....hope you are having a lovely weekend and have maybe even treated to a little bit of sunshine.

Housework aside, have been having something of a lazy weekend. I took Mum to London on Friday to visit the Ideal Home Show, so a rest was in order after a lot of walking.

Today's card is a commission from a family friend to mark the occasion of  a very special birthday. I don't know about you, but in the years that I have been card making, I have never made a 100th Birthday card.
Today's card features:
  • sentiment created using Rochester font
  • Spellbinders fancy oval die
  • papers from Raspberry Road
  • ribbon and lace from stash
  • flowers from The Flower Girl
  • acrylic dome dots
I would like to enter this into:

thanks again for visiting me today, I have two wee dogs beside me, waiting patiently for a trip to the park, so perhaps I shouldn't keep them waiting too much longer!


  1. Beautiful papers and card Ginny x

  2. This is fantastic Lisa, Miss Iris is going to be thrilled to bits. What a great font, must remember that one!! xx

  3. This is gorgeous Lisa, fabulous papers and an elegant design - a very special card. I've certainly never made a card for a 100th Birthday - I think I would be a bit nervous about making one!

  4. What a lovely design Lisa. My hubby's grandfathers is 104 but I usually put grandfather on his card rather than the number. Unfortunately he's not too well at the moment so not sure he will see his next birthday bless him. What an achievement thoug hey? X

  5. WOW fancy living to 100! Fabby card :-)

  6. What a Wonderful and pretty card, love the frame with her name and age in, just perfect.

    I had to make a 101 once, I think that's the oldest I have done.

  7. Very pretty card, and display papers reminiscing an era of her time. Great card. Thanks for sharing with Aud Sentiments.

  8. So stunning Lisa.Gorgeous design , I love the wording and fab papers and design :D
