Birthday Girl

 My card I made yesterday afternoon for the birthday girl, crafting with friends. Was very productive for a change but multi tasking isn't one of my fortes nowadays and things weren't going to plan. Just can't chat and do at the say time. One card I made, had layered it all up onto main card something I don't usually do until I have got the ribbon on, grrr! Felt it would of been to bulky to have cut it and put it on another card so just had to go and make another one.Never mind will use the other again. Then I felt I had placed the sentiment and ribbon too far down and my butterflies didn't look placed right. Never mind, all sortable.  Now all my crafty friends are dieting and coffee time was all low fat cakes apart from some Christmas cake, guess what I chose! And even better, I had two pieces, yummy! I'll eat sensibly the rest of the week lol! Who you trying to kid Carol!!!!

K&Co Wild Raspberry 8x8 papers

The finished card looks amazing - you were all very neatly organised yesterday afternoon Carol. Don't feel too guilty about eating the cake but liked how the other two "guests" took round slimming biscuits! Should we have eaten the cake Aud would have been giving us a reprimanding at night. As it was the scales did us proud.
