Added Wed 7th: A bit thank you to Kim … for featuring my card as one of her Punch Inspiration picks for the 6th March! Kim’s blog is PACKED FULL of punch art ideas! Please take the time to pop by! 🙂 xxx
Well … I didn’t get here yesterday (Mar 5th) to share my twin sis’ b’day card. It was just one of those days … with lots of little details to attend to! But … I thought I would share the card I made for my sis … today … (at least this way I didn’t spoil the surprise!)
This is such a simple design … but I thought it was soooo Christine! She loves blue … and loves CAS cards … so even though simple … a lot of love went into making it! Yes … more of that glimmer paper. It is just such a ‘wow’ touch to anything that is really special!
So … you would have probably guessed … if my twin sister turned 50 … that would mean … I DID TOOOOOO! I am not liking this 50 thing at all … BUT … I am so touched by all the love & attention I have had because of it. I am so blessed to have had so many wonderful messages, cards & some gorgeous gifts … that I am beginning to think perhaps it is not so bad!!! 😉 I had a lovely day yesterday … a nice relax day with Stace & Bree, my mum & m-i-l. We had some yummy bruchetta for lunch … and watched “The Help”! I looooved that movie!!! Would watch it again in a heart beat! Christine & I and all our families + our mum went out to a fav Thai restaurant for dinner … and then back to Christine’s for coffee, cake & pressies! It was a very special time together! If only my other sis (Q’ld) & her family could have been here … it would have been perfect! 🙂 But … it was nice to talk to them today!
I wanted to say thank you to those special blog friends who sent such lovely cards & gifts, blog comments & facebook messages … and wow … even a “Verve” gift voucher! (What a fab idea!) You are all so special and thoughtful and I felt very loved! 🙂 I will share some of the creations with you all asap! But … I did want to show you the card that Christine made for me! It is just stunning!
Isn’t this a masterpiece! Thanks sis for all the love that went into making this gorgeous card! Well … I have lots of fiddly things to do today … and I am going out to lunch with my bestie, Tania! What fun … 50th b’days seem to spread over a few days … because my other SU! besties (Leonie, Jenny & Tracey) are taking me out for lunch on Thursday! I am soooooo spoilt! 😉 😯 😀
Have a great day everyone! I am also remembering my dad today. It is the first b’day after his passing last June. But … as mum mentioned … he is having his best birthday EVER in heaven! 😀 Take care! See you soon! Hugs xxx
