70th Birthday

Good morning.  I was so excited yesterday because we had rain!! The well is full and all the water butts are full and my plants all look so fresh and nourished.  It doesn't take much to please me ... lol!  Now I  would still like more rain but it can rain overnight and then we will all be happy!

My Card

white cardstock - from stash
pink centura pearl - Crafters Companion
Create a Card die  - Die'sire
Etched Alphabet & Numbers  - Spellbinders
Oval Bliss - Spellbinders
pearls - from stash

I created a side fold step card from A4 card stock and die cut the Create a Card die into the main piece which I then backed with Centura pearl. I needed it to be quite flat for posting and luckily it didn't need too much more adding to it. Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the die because I took it out of the original wrapping and popped it onto a magnetic sheet and promptly misplaced the piece with the name on. Since that was a couple of years ago now I know it will definitely not turn up again!

Well I hope you are all well and enjoying life.

Take care.
