Happy Birthday Charlotte!

Hi everyone,

It's the elusive blogger returning to your screens!

It has been rather hectic around here lately, to say the least.  The weekend before last saw us enjoying my Dad's 80th Birthday surprise, a Steam Train footplate experience, where he got to drive a big choo choo!  I had got a pair of overalls embroidered up for him for the day (see photo below) and I have to say a huge thanks to Anne at Big Paw Embroidery Den for doing it for me.

Anyway, on to todays card.  This was a commission from a lady who lives up the lane for her daughter's 16th Birthday ~ as you can probably guess she's really into One Direction the pop group.



I promised I wouldn't blog it until after the big day, which was yesterday.

CARD RECIPE:

Image: Google images
Cardstock: From my scraps box
Sentiment: Computer generated using the font 'Zipty Do'
Dies: MFT Die-namics 'Musical Notes'
Gems: My Mind's Eye ~ 'Lush' Rhinestones ~ Red

I also decorated the envelope to match.


This was done using a plain red envelope and cutting a mat with PTI's Mega Mat Stack #4 die and embellishing with more of the musical notes.

Just one more piccy of the famous overalls.


I will be back next week with another commission card.

Many thanks for stopping by and for any lovely comments you may make.

Love
