Good morning

A happy Sunday to you all, we have showers here today which is good! The garden did need some rain and it also means I don't have to go out and make my hanging baskets, also the plants waiting to go in get a drink as well!
I have so much to do inside, my craft room is driving me mad, in desperate need of a tidy-up, but I also need to make 4 cards, hunt for missing embroidery, get Kerry's quilt together and sewn, alter two dresses for her, as well as some usual H/W ! I only have 27 days left to accomplish everything Panic is setting in!

Anyway, here is a card I was asked to make......... The brief was for a lady who knits and will be 80 later this month. Although I do like the card I am very unsure of what the Lady who ordered it will think, I have a feeling she will think it to young. I put the 3 borders at the bottom to represent rows of knitting, buttons and wool..........let's see, I may have to start again! lol

Paper stack Sparling Spring papers
Matted onto cream card
Mo's image
Coloured with promarkers
Cut with Nesties opulent ovals
MS doily punch and butterflies
Metal corner and felt buttons from Jules
Foam numbers, twine, sentiment and stickles from stash

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Creative corner challenge-----------things with wings

Forever friends --------------- challenge 61 pastel colours

Pretty little ribbon shop------------ Lace

Deep ocean--------------- lets sparkle

That's about all from me, have a good week and thank you for your visit, it's appreciated.

Hugs Tilly x

Knowing how tenuous my thinking is now and I'm 20 years younger, who knows what she will think! LOL! But I think it is absolutely perfect for her, Tilly, with the bottom rows and the fairy knitting and the "80" prominently displayed. That age is, indeed, something to celebrate!

Good luck with all you have to do!!

Shall I pop over and do your craftroom for you Tilly :)
Love the card, I think its a great idea for someone who knits, so well thought out.
I got all my jobs done...and then told my daughter to bring her ironing as she is snowed under with jobs too. I guess another ironing day tomorrow :0
