Hi there everyone in blogland,  I mentioned that I had made a birthday card recently but I am only just managing to post it!  DT work has been keeping me very busy although I have decided to leave two of my posts in order to be able to do more for myself and also play!!  I have a few items that I want to use ie  the gelli plate thingy that Barbara Grey uses.  I am still a member of the Christmas Card Club and also the OSAAT DT - so I still have some work to do!!!

Anyway here is the card I made for Katie next door.  She does love glitter and pink and things like this so I put loads of embellishments on - just because I could - lol!

I do make the inside of the card pretty on occasions and this is definitely one of them.  Katie's birthday was 2 August, the very same day we celebrated our 44th Wedding anniversary so I couldn't forget our special day could I .......... unlike some I could mention .............. you know who you are Graham darling!  Mind you he giggled when I reminded him and his giggles always set me off, so how could I be annoyed???

I hope you like my card and have the time to leave a comment or two.  I know Katie loves it and she gave us a piece of birthday cake each - lurvely.   Sue J and I are still waiting for Jenny's Lemon Drizzle, Chocolate Cake and Scones to arrive in the post, methinks we will be waiting for a long long time 'cos someone eats 'em before they get to us!   Eh Jenny!!! LOL.
Keep as well as you can and take care.
Big hugs to you
