A Birthday Card for a Friend

Last weekend I went with a group of my friends to the national Gallery to have High Tea. I took some pictures with my son's camera - but I seem to be having problems downloading them! We had a wonderful day out - and it was my lovely friend Ali's birthday too! This is the card I made her - using my Top Note die and the gorgeous set Thoughts and Payers. I have popped some mini lime rhinestones in the centre of the flowers to add just the right amount of birthday sparkle - the dot on the "i" was given a similar treatment.

I hope to come back later and pop the photos of the day on too - will be seeking help to download the camera from the household computer experts - my kids - LOL!!!

Dear Debbie, I occasionally landed on your blog and like what I see here. You do wonderful artwork! And so I will make a visit again on your place from time to time to see what's new.

A truly lovely card, Debbie. I'm sure Ali loved it! You can't go wrong with that stamp set... it's just so simple and classy. And that Top Note die is a winner!

Okay, now, don't accidentally erase all those pictures!!! LOL
