Happy 70th

If you were anywhere near East Cheshire last night (4am),
You like me, may have been woken by the mother of all thunderstorms!!
We get one or two in Summer, but I've never known one in the depths of Winter before!
It was a DOOZY!! Then this morning.....bright blue skies as calm as you like!
No wonder us Brits are always going on about the weather, we get a lot of it! lol 
Waffle over, here's a card I made for my next door neighbour.
She's love and we get on like a house on fire.

Only found out it was her 70th thanks to Facebook! 
(Her hubby Brian, didn't think to tell me).


I used my bright shiny new Spellbinders Grand M-Bossibilities folder.
LOVE how I can cover a whole A4 sheet of card in the lovely patterns if I want to.
(This card is an A4 folded in half).

Makings.....
Spellbinders fancy ovals and rectangles
Sentiment by Papermania
Numbers die by Memory Box.
Flowers from stash
Card sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink..'Old Paper'

NO COPICS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS CARD. LOL
Enjoy your day wherever you are!

Beautifully frames sentiment and love the touch of flowers in the corner. Lovely die too!

We don't have thunderstorms here very often too so they are an adventure when we do get them :)

Wonderful card Viv, so pretty, and your A4 folder is different from mine, I like it very much.
If we had a storm overnight then I never heard it! :o)

Very pretty birthday card. I love the embellishments. We had a big thunderstorm in the dead of winter too. Don't remember one with snow on the ground before.
