Going to try and be quick with this one as i have no option but to,  ooooooo (cringe) do some housework,
 ouch that was painful lol
 Being ill last week has left the house in a sorry state and I do not have a domestic goddess of a Husband to keep it ship shape in fact I'm sure he would live in a pig sty and not notice. 
Maybe just as well since crafting takes priority in my list of  have toos!

 my card, for a friend of a friend,
 nothing to over the top
 so I thought Autumn colours, flowers and Lace
 such a lovely combination I think to add a glow to any 50th young girl.

. Now there's a smidge of blue in the backing paper so wanted to highlight it,
 hence the Blue pearls and string

would like to play along with the following challenges

Gorgeous card Carol. Love the colours you've used and the lovely flowers and lace.

I hate housework too. Hoovered and dusted this morning and then made the tea. Then did my baking for our WRI quiz night tomorrow. Only need 1 1/2 dozen cakes but managed to make Rocky Road traybake, shortbread and another traybake. Then I had to make another traybake after tea to use the other half of a tin of condensed milk. And I wonder why I can't lose weight.

I think I should go and finish the two cards I started last night!!

Hi Carol, back again, I thought I'd left you a comment last night for all your lovely cards last week, but for some reson not appeared. I didn't have time last week, too many emergencies I'm afraid. The bag was really nice, one lucky person who gets that with a gift...Trish

What a sweet, lovely, dainty card - I'm sure your friend will LOVE it! I had to laugh at your description of your husband - I have one just like him and he doesn't mind when the house isn't in pristine order. He's happy with my priorities (crafting is first, house second.) Thanks for playing along with us at Tuesday Alchemy!
