Age is just a number...

Good evening everyone.

just sitting down to find a few minutes to blog after a lovely meal with my whole family to celebrate my Nans 80th birthday (although her badge said 50!)  poor waitress - a table of 22...

As I've made them I thought I'd share my Nan's two cards, one from me and the other from Harrison.  He calls her G Nan as that's what she wrote one year on his present label because it was too small to write Great Nanny Hammond! she refused her age to be mentioned - hence no numbers on either but they were made for an extra special lady on a very special birthday.

I want to enter this one into

LoTV monthly challenge - anything goes
ABC - xtra special - Pinktober  #108 - anything goes

I stamped the Lotv image an coloured using Promarkers and die cut her out (not sure the make of this die though!)  I then layered paper with kraft paper and distress all the edges using tea dye, used Washi tape, lace and a textured florist ribbon to layer up, along with a die cut butterflies and some flags (all distressed with tea dye too)  finished with a stamped tag and sentiment, flowers and stickles

The next one - I want to enter into - Make a card
apologies about the photo - the pearlescent card was very difficult to photograph without the glare!

This was stamped using Magestix bird and birdhouse stamp set, using various colour of Memento Dew drop inks.  finished with a lovely purple/pink ribbon

Thanks so much for dropping in - please leave me a comment so I know you've been.
