90th Birthday Card

Hello and welcome to my space, I feel I am often in space when my days all run into one.  I have been busy making this card and another for a seventy something and prepping the kits for tomorrow's demo at the club my mum attends.  I have prepped 11 kits so hopefully that will be enough.  I will take some more card with me in case more ladies attend.  Some ladies were keen and others felt they would not be able to do it, their ages range from 65-93 and the older ones are the people willing to have a go.  In the kits every thing has been prepared and they only have to stick it together nothing difficult, them stick a few gem/pearls here and there and a sentiment.

Here is the card I have made for the 90 year old. The remit was "not too dull"

8 x 8 scalloped card
Centura Pearl white card
Some pale green pearlised card from stash
The green patterned paper in the centre (which has not photographed very well) was from the Glitter Girls many moons ago)
Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One and Floral Ovals
The remaining embellishments, feathers and peel offs from my stash
I made the stick pin from my collection of beads
The light today was bad for taking photographs so I must apologise for the colours, it is OK in real life.
I have another airport run on Friday to pick up my niece, Megan and her boyfriend.  It is at 1400 so not early morning but the traffic is usually bad on a Friday afternoon and with it being a Fife Holiday Weekend I expect it will be extremely busy.  I am eager to hear how she enjoyed her break.  My other niece Lesley (who lives in Benidorm and has a Pub/restaurant out there), who Megan was staying with, has a Parrot named Hooper and apparently as soon as Megan arrived it chased her round the villa.  Well Megan is not particularly keen on birds of any kind was not amused so I am eager to her if they settled their differences.
My next door neighbour and family arrived home on Monday and they had a whale of a time.  As soon as he arrived home Christopher was in to regale me with all the things he got up to and to make sure Sunday breakfast was still on.  He also presented me with a lovey bracelet for giving him Euros to spend on holiday.
Ok that's enough of my ramblings for tonight.  Hope you are all safe and well
Take care out there.

  1. Gorgeous card your dies and your gorgeous pin


  2. This card is very beautiful and stylish xxxxxx

  3. A gorgeous card Wilma. I person receiving it will be delighted, good luck with you demo today, it's funny how the older ladies still like to have a go. I am sure it's from when they were young they made most things themselves as that's how life was, now it's to easy to just go and buy. You should have got your niece to get the airport bus to the park & ride at this side of the bridge and then you pick them up from there we found this works better as you don't have the traffic to contend with coming out of Edinburgh, plus the bus gets priority over the bridge. Enjoy your day. By the way how is your sister doing I hope they have found the problem with her knee?. Hazel xxx

  4. Simply stunning Wilma. Somebody is really going to love receiving this! Hope all goes well with your class. Christine xx
