A good day's work!

Pam and I had a great afternoon playing.

Well actually, we needed to get two 40th birthday cards made
for a friend of Pam's.
(Quickly becoming a friend of mine too). ;0)
I got three Forever Friends Bears stamps yesterday,
so Pam collared them and I played with my new Duet stamp
from Simon Says Stamp. Fantastic stamps and a really quick S&H.
(Got the Quartet at the same time).

Here's my card. I'm really pleased with it.

Nearly all the components are from the stash I got from my secret sister!! The metal greeting is from Lakeland and the little gems are from a set Pam's husband, Dan brought me back from the US. The brad and ribbon are from my stash. I added a '40' sticker to the center of the brad. I coloured the stamp with Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid and highlighted it a little with black ink.Added a strip of pink lace down one side too, just to be greedy.
