Life is ....

I'm a bit late today - we've been into Salisbury for a lovely Sunday lunch, my 17 year old drove us there and back.  It really hit's home that they are growing up when they start doing things like driving!

Enough of my waffling, this is my card for this weeks Seize the Birthday Challenge, it's the feminine week this week and we have a new sketch to follow.


Everything on my card is from My Craft Studio, the scalloped border is a Fiskars edge punch and I have layered all of the elements onto Kraft card stock.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Hiding in my Craft Room Challenge 92 - Yellow, Green and Pink
MilkCoffee Challenge - Anything but Square
Shelly's Images TTT Challenge - Use Scallops
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Challenge - Green, Yellow and one other (Pink)
Seize the Birthday Challenge 12 - Sketch and Feminine Birthday Card


Thank you for calling today, I appreciate the company.

Oh Wow! this is gorgeous Pauline!! I love the way the sentiment is main focus… and wonderful words too! the papers and ribbon/bow are really pretty! Is the ribbon and bow printed on card? it looks SO real…
Glad you had a lovely lunch today… at least we have had some sunshine this weekend! :-)
