Good afternoon, at least it is a lovely sunny one, even if there is still a bit of a nip in the air.   I am enjoying some me time as I don't need to pick Beth up till 4pm.   She is doing bike training after school, then it's on to pick Anna up she is playing Netball.  So I did house work here then I got on with making a card I was asked to make.   The person receiving it doesn't know I have a blog so it will safe to show it.

Was asked to make a not to fancy but with a bit of sparkle card.

I cut out the 50 from the 2 pieces of paper which is I think 180gsm
Then just changed them over and stuck cut out pieces back in where needed.

Used  2 sheet of paper from a pack from Lidl
Memory box 50 die
Flowers are ones I use on my baskets.

The customer very pleased with it.  So I suppose that's all that counts.    

Now for a message from Beth.   

Thank you all very much for all my congratulations, I was very pleased to get my 5th. Infact I was surprised as there were lots of wonderful freestyles.    I must have done something right, liz who is our head coach is going to try and get a team together for next year so that I can be the flyer.   Hazel, mummy and daddy are saying no way - so watch this space as I will get Hazel to take a photo.
Thank you again

  15. Simply gorgeous! Love this die (have it and not had a chance to use it yet. Before I purchased it, I was needing to have all kinds of 50th cards!). The papers on these layers are so pretty, and the die cut letters do sparkle beautifully. Love the way you've enhanced the simplicity of the sentiment with those pretty flowers too. Great card. TFS & Hugs
