Happy Birthday

Well I finally finished it so I can relax a bit now as my next challenges are not till nearly the end of month . It`s the first time I have stamped on vellum and cut it out with dies lining up was a challenge and a half as vellum moves so much also first time I have used my H2O`s paints . the main Image I no I didn`t get quite straight but I think I have got away with it as struggled with a large stamp get pressure on it but used my brayer in the end .

This card is going to my ex next door neighbour she is truly a wonderful woman the best neighbour u could every want ,that was are only regret when we downsized ,but we still see one another I did do some craft fairs with her and since my accident she phones me up and has got me some thing's from Canterbury ,which I required. Its her Birthday on Wednesday so this is why I had to put my heart into it and kept saying to myself  my back doesn`t hurt.
