WOYWW 119

I've been working on this card for a while, it's the same as the other 'book styleeee' cards I've done, but this one has a special verse and an amazing number in it too.  My Aunt is 80 in a couple of weeks and I wanted to make something really special for her.

She loves my cards and each one I've given her she keeps on her mantlepiece for ages and keeps them afterwards which is nice.  It's lovely for someone to do that and appreciate your hard work and kind thoughts.

I've also used the last of my metal brads - I put some coral nail varnish on them as it will suit some more cards I've been working on behind the scenes which will be showing up here later on!

Enjoy WOYWW!

It looks like you have some fun stuff! You asked about the stickers on my blog - they are Samantha Walker for Creative Imaginations. You can get them in many places(google), but one of those is here: http://www.acherryontop.com/shop/type/stickers/theme/holidays/subtheme/halloween/subcat/epoxy_%26_acrylic_stickers/company/creative_imaginations/line/samantha_walker

Like the pretty colours for your aunt's card, pink and green go so well together, don't they? xx

How special to be making an 80th birthday card - and how lovely when someone really appreciates the effort and love that has gone into making it. Thanks for sharing.

Like the pattern on your edging punch. Does the nail varnish cover and stay on ok? Hugs Mrs A.

Pretty Colors. Hope your Aunt has a wonderful birthday. Dad was 89 the 13th and Father In Law will be 95 soon. Enjoy WOYWW

Thanks for the answer to varnish query. Off to dig out my old nail varnish colours (and I do mean decades old). Erm, know how to use varnish when its set solid?
Hugs Mrs A.

I saw a tutorial for those book cards so I know how time consuming they are, but what a wonderful keepsake for a special occasion! Great mile stone for your Aunt and lovely that she appreciates the time and effort you spend.

awesome card. I saw the finished card post! Sorry I am so late getting by this week but I wanted to pop by and visit your blog to say hello and to see what you are up to! Didn't have the time to post(except about newest Doswell addition) or craft the past two weeks due to being in Virginia visiting with the son's family to see the newest granddaughter born. Definitely a fun time none the less. Hope you have a great week. Vickie aka okienurse
