Commissioned 80th Birthday Card

Hi Everyone

Hope you all had a lovely weekend - what a shame we all have to go back to work! Had a very busy day today but managed to spend 5 mins in Crafty Corner tonight to finish off this card (as I had to borrow some dies from my crafty buddy Karen).

Here is the card I have made for a friend of mine for her Nan. I can't take all the credit for this card as Karen has supplied me with most of the bits and bobs - I'll have to share the monies with her!

Cute isn't he/she!

Hope you all like it!

Hoping for a slightly less busy day at work tomorrow and looks like we might be dodging more snow this week - so I'll be trying to keep warm!

See you soon
