It has been a doozy week … with another to follow … but then I get a week’s break in Phuket, Thailand (to celebrate a special occasion) … so I am definitely NOT complaining. We have a special 21st birthday party to attend tonight … our niece, Carrie is celebrating and we are looking forward to celebrating with her.
Do you recognise the card I am sharing with you today? Yes … it is a ‘tweak’ of a card that I made several months ago! I was saving this for a special occasion … and what better than for a sweet niece’s birthday? You may remember a card I made for another of my nieces for her 21st recently … can you see a ‘theme’ starting to emerge???
You can see Tahnee’s card –> HERE! (to jog your memory! This card for Carrie was my inspiration for another niece’s birthday too … but you will have to wait until the end of March to see that one! 😀
I did want to make the card a little more special … seeing it was for such a significant birthday … so can you see how I stepped it up a little??? I pulled the image & frame pieces off the card and mounted the image card onto some sparkly silver glimmer paper. I just am so addicted to this glimmer paper for those special cards.
Because this card wasn’t made as a 21st … I had to create an appropriate sentiment. This wasn’t easy to do … because there was very little room for a sentiment. So … I went for something to attach to the ribbon. A sweet heart with a glimmer tag & ‘congratulations’ seemed just right!
Well … I have to fly … I have been working hard this week so that I can have Monday off! I wonder why??? 🙂 Take care … and have a wonderful weekend! Hugs xxx
PS: I have a heap of email subs in my inbox to follow up … and will try and do a few this afternoon … but I will need to be going soon to pick up my mum for the party. I do hope you will understand if I don’t get to them all for a couple of days! I hope to be back on Monday with my sister’s 50th birthday card! 🙂
