Today is the 50th (sorry Lorie) birthday of one of my most treasured American friends.

Kathy Jakapovich (my VERY bestest American friend), of Peachy Keen fame, 
came up with the idea of all her friends in blogland, and on Facebook making a card for her and posting them on a 'Lorie's 50th Birthday ' Facebook page and on our blogs.
This is so Lorie can hop on over to all the blogs that have made her  a card and see the love.
(A lot of us have also sent the physical card to her).

I love this lady and it was no hardship at all for me to make a special card for her 50th. I posted it 6 days ago, so hopefully, it gets there today. Fingers crossed!!

I used the fabulously versatile set 'PKSC-12'. to make this box card.
I coloured the elements with Copics and stamped a '50' onto the label of the champagne bottle.
The images come with SVG files so there's no need to fussy cut!
(A boon for left-handers that haven't got a decent pair of sharp pointed scissors).

Well my dear friend, I hope your special day is as lovely as you are!!

Back soon!

Hi Viv.... Ooh I bet Lorie loved this little box full of perfection... and I laughed at the 29th fun sentiment! Loving the way you've got the candle guys holding that sentiment too. And what a fab idea to do a FB page just for her birthday!!

Big hugs

You did such a wonderful job. On a side note, AMEN about the scissors. I am left handed and HATE having to hand cut my images.

What a cute card. I haven't done one of these styles--it intimidates me. You decorated it up so nicely.
