50th Birthday Card

Hello...I thought its about time I popped in to post my most recent make with you all. Crafting has been very eratic recently as I continue to unexpectedly work full-time hours. By the time I get home in the evening and sort dinner out, I'm far too tired to craft and then the weekends seem to be taken up with house keeping duties.

I did manage to pull this card together last weekend, for a colleague who is celebrating her 50th birthday this week. I'm far from happy with it though, it just doesn't look right to me but as I had no additional time to make another it's already been given to the recipient in its current state! Fingers crossed she likes it!

Note to oneself...must do better next time!

Hi Donna
I'm sure she loved it :o)
Great design and I love how you have cut the numbers into the circle and then backed with the stripey paper - super stylish.
Hope things settle down for you soon.

Hi Donna

I think your card is perfect and am sure that it will be loved by your colleague.

Stuff the housework or fold clothes carefully instead of ironing and blow the dust away with a hair dryer!!!
It works for me!! LOL!!

Donna, we're always hardest on ourselves; just the life of a person who cares about her work; a great attribute, actually. This card is perfect in every way. When I turned 50 some years ago, this card would have brightened my spirits. I love your punched flowers; adding colored ones to the kraft paper is a cool idea. Your colleague will love it! ;-)

Donna I am absolutely loving the kraft with the touches of girly colours. Perfect for a 50 young lady.
