Funky 21st Card

Evening all!!

I was asked to make a funky flowery 21st birthday card for a friends daughter. She loves flower and bling. This paper was from a Dovecraft 12 x 12 set (can't remember the name) and I used my Expression & SCAL to cut out the letters and just added more bling with brads and gems. She loved it!!

I've been tagged!

The lovely, and very talented Jilly has tagged me - thanks hun!!

The rules of this are you need to go to where you keep the photos on your comp, go to the 6th folder and then the sixth picture. You then upload it on your blog and write a bit about what is going on.

I am completely freaked out by this to be honest, as it just happens that my sixth folder is pictures taken from Saturday night when I went to see NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK!! Yes, you read that right, me, a 34 year old mother of two went to see NKOTB. I have to say, they are much better now than when I went to see them 15 years ago!! Talk about absolutely gorgeous, my friend and I were in heaven!! We were lucky enough to be quite near the front (although the camera on my phone makes them look miles away). So the picture you are seeing is the gorgeous Joey McIntyre looking right at me lol (alright, he isn't looking at me but it kinda looks like he is!!) Can't wait till they tour again - just hope its not another 15 years....

Right, I have to pass this on, so I am gonna choose..


Can't wait to see your pics peeps!!

Another Fantasy Card

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

My friend asked me to make a fantasy themed card for her 16 year old neice, she likes fairies so this is what I came up with, thought it was a bit trendier than a fluffy fairy one.
