Yummy Cake


Well I've had another night off from crafting.  Mondays and Tuesdays are busy for me as Iona has clubs she goes to and my husband doesn't drive so Mum is the taxi service.  I'm always glad to get Tuesday over with as the rest of the week isn't usually so stressful!

This is a card I made (very quickly) on Saturday for my pal Fiona's daughter.  I'm not usually so disorganised but my plan to make it on Thursday night backfired after I spent 2 hours off and on  the phone to NHS 24 then ended up in A&E just before midnight after my aunt burst a blood vessel in her eye.  As she is 86 they didn't want to take any chances but happily she is completely fine, the look of it is the worst thing about it!

It wasn't so much of a rush as it sounds as I had already made up my mind that I would use this decoupaged Forever Friends image.  I mounted it on white pearlised card die-cut with a X-cut scalloped oval die.  I've used a smaller die-cut for the number 6.  I've used lilac gingham and spot papers by Craftworks Cards mounted on bright pink cardstock and added a ribbon bow, pearls and gems to finish.  The little flower stickers, sentiment and cardstock number sticker are all from forever friends.

I'm off to bed now or it will be another late one!
