Happy birthday to me........



I have had a lovely day with a mantel full of hand-made cards, each one so different.Thank you very much to everyone that sent them!
I also had a beautiful photo frame made by my lovely friend Aunty Sue. I have had visitors for most of the day and then been out for a meal with my 86 year old neighbour Alan.........and No washing up lol.

 In fact it has been a very busy week including a full day shopping with my Granddaughter and I HATE shopping, but she had a lovely day. I now have a lot of catching up to do both on email and blogs......

This is my last card as GDT for April,  for Crafty Catz, I have really enjoyed my time with them. We were asked by Beth to do the colour purple which I love for my cards anyway.

I used the sketch from Sketch N Stash,
Papers are docraft capsule
flocked vellum which I have had forever
Matted on to purple card
I don't know where I picked up the image from ??
Coloured with promarkers
 Frame border is spellbinders decorative elements
Cheery Lynn flourish
crafty Ribbons lace and ribbon
Flowers and butterfly with pearls from stash
stickles
Whimsey sentiment
Cut with nesties round and scallop

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Sketch N Stash ---------- Sketch 112 (Old Vellum, New Butterfly with pearls
Crafty ribbons----------anything goes with ribbons
Totally papercrafts------- flowers and lace
Stampavive and more---------- Lots of diecuts
Milkcoffee challenge,--------Lace and pearls (on butterfly)

Before I go here is the beautiful frame made by Aunty Sue, my picture does not do justice to all the shine and glitter on it Perfect colours for my living room. Thank you!



Thank you for your Visit

Hugs Tilly x
