Good morning crafters. I haven't managed to post anything all week as we have been having some 'pooter problems ... so this is my first experimental attempt to see if I can get back into it !! :-)
One of my friends who I don't see very often had her 50th birthday yesterday ... I always knew her birthday was coming up and had a card at the ready, but for some reason I thought her 50th was still a year away. As luck would have it I ran into another friend on Tuesday who put me straight, so Tuesday night I thought I'd better sit down and make a specific card for the occasion.
Unfortunately on demand I couldn't get any inspiration to come straight away... then I remembered another card Imade that I was very pleased with (previously posted here); so I thought I would CASE myself lol! So I made another very similar card to the previous one - here's the result.
The card is actually very sparkly as I used various shades of pink and green glitter card, though it is difficult to see in the dull lighting conditions - here's a closeup.
Stamps: Penny Black "To You..." (2908F);
Papers: pearlised white embossed card from my stash;
Supplies: pearls from The Hobby House; ribbon from Hobbycraft; lace from John Lewis;
Tools: Memory Box "Prim Poppy" die; Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" number dies; Leone Em "Ash Family" leaf punch; X-Cut small butterfly punch.

The weather's not looking great today, so I'm hoping to get some crafting done. If this post works ok I'll hope to be back soon with the results of my efforts :-)
Have a great weekend.
