I made a mat of black gloss card, a sheet of Dawn Bibby designer paper and some cream lace ribbon, which I attached to a square cream card. Next I used my nesties to cut out a couple of different shapes - a lotus pendant in holographic silver card and a star circle in coordinating black designer paper. I stamped one of my favourite large doilies onto cream vellum and heat embossed with silver powder, then I spent a while cutting it out!! I stamped the birthday greeting onto white card, cut it out and added a touch of colour while still in the die. I added some silver ribbon to the back of the rosette and attached it all to the card. A special birthday card for a very special lady. And while not quite meeting the requirements for the RR challenge, I'm still submitting it.

And now it's time to get some lunch for Kathryn and me. Then I plan to spend the afternoon doing my least favourite job - IRONING!!! Ugh! Still, I'll be doing it in front of the TV, so it won't be all bad. And there's a definite plus - I'll be warm. It's not very nice here today - more cold wet weather.
My next post will be on New Year's day with the return of CR84FN - so do drop by then. Before I go, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all
A Happy, Healthy and Creative New Year!!
See you soon.
