Birthday card

Evening all,

Just popped on here before the final of Strictly Come Dancing quickly to post a card that I made at the beginning of the week for Steven's aunts 60th birthday. I haven't had a minute before now to post it as I have been so busy at work this week trying to get things wrapped up for the holidays due to being off work all last week with the flu. Have recovered now but still have quite an annoying cough which I think may linger for a while. Thank you to everyone who left me get well wishes last week, that was very kind and cheered me up.

Anyway back to the card, I used a rubber romance stamp called "Girls Night Out" which I absolutely loved using along with liquid pearls for the first time on the number 60. Quite liked the effect of them, think I may need to buy some other colours. I was really happy with the card I made and Steven's aunt loved it too, so that was a bonus! There's nothing better than seeing someone really happy with something you have made or given to them - brings out the child in me!

I was busy making some other cards last night for family members and will post pictures of them tomorrow along with a picture of the fabulous Secret Santa gift that I received on Thursday from one of my SBS sisters! I was delighted with the contents and can't wait to use the scrummy goodies I received so a huge thank you to my "secret santa". My secret santa gift is on the way to my Secret SBS sister and hopefully they will receive it soon. I also got a gorgeous secret santa gift at work on Thursday so Thursday was a great day for me for receiving gifts.

I'm off now to watch the final of Strictly Come Dancing, my favourite programme as dancing is my number one passion. RACHEL to win!!!! I've voted several times already and will be again shortly.

Have a great night whatever you are doing and wherever you are!
