40th Birthday Card & School Sports Day!

Crikey...this week is flying by and it's Wednesday already...I've not done any crafting since the weekend so I thought I'd share a card I made on Saturday for one of the girls at work who is celebrating the big 40! This lil Hanglar image was a RAK from a friend and I added the numbers and wording using Safmat film...which once printed on can be added to your crafting projects like a rub-on...neat!

I've shown some piccies below of Sophie's school sports day (Tuesday afternoon) fortunately it stayed dry so the event could take place having been cancelled last week due to rain...the day felt even more special this year as its her last sports day at Primary school....Yikes!

Image : RAK from a friend
Design Papers : The Creative Cottage (Gingham Paper Pack)
Card Stock : SU! (Certainly Celery)
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Embellishments : Ribbon, Card Candy & Pearls from my Craft Stash!
Tools : MS Scalloped Border Punch and X-Cut Flower Punch
Sentiment : Created on the Computer using Safmat Film
