40 & Fabulous

Good morning fellow crafters

Just a quick post this morning.

2014 is the year when many of my friends (and myself) will be hitting the big 40 milestone....eeek!  How scary is that?!  So here is the first of a few 40 cards I'll be making this year.




I used a couple of fishtail flag dies to cut out various pieces of patterned paper from a pack I've owned for years but had abandoned.  I love black, white and pink so plan to use more of this again.  The '& fabulous' sentiment was actually from 2 separate phrases in the same stamp set so I used post-it notes to cover the parts I didn't want to use before inking up.

Materials used:

  • Patterned Paper: Dovecraft - Designed Paper Pack 'A Hint of Pink'
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Fishtail Flag Stax
  • Stamps: Dovecraft - Numbers; Clearly Besotted Stamps - A Little Sentimental
  • Ink:  Versa Color - Magenta
  • Ribbon from stash


Challenge entries:

I think this is my first time entering a card for these two :)

Thanks, as always, for popping by.  That's all from me today as I've got a busy day ahead.  It's time to put all the Christmas decorations back in the loft and then try to get the flat back to normal, as well as doing a food shop and popping into work to clean the office.

Hope to see you soon :)

    1. Thanks, Gillian. The weather is pretty bad down here right now with lots of roads apparently flooded. I've a feeling my route to work may be impassable tomorrow! xx

  12. Hi Neets, lovey bright card! And between you and I I would never have guessed your age, I'm 34 and from your profile picture I always assumed you'd be younger than me!
