"Elaine`s Birthday Card"

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.  Thank you for calling in to see what I have been doing.
I really enjoy that you take time to pop in, I hope you enjoy what you see and call in again sometime soon.
Today is Thomas`s 9th Birthday, we were along at their house since early afternoon till quite late.  They had their bath, got into bed, John read to them.  We had "another" quick cuppa with John and Audrey then left.   Although Grandpa would have stayed on.  He say`s the boys having to go to school really curtails their "FUN" time ....... he would be the first to moan if they were not doing well at school!!!
Thomas did not want a party, said he was getting to old for silly parties.   Asked what he wanted to do he said, I would like have you guys (meaning mum, dad & Robert) also granny and Grandpa, could we please have Chinese for tea!!!!  Wish fulfilled, it was great, everyone was happy.

My card today is the one I made for my friend Elaine.  Her birthday was last week she now has her card so I can show it to you.
Base card is 8x8 scalloped card from Joanna Sheen
Dark pink card
Light pink card
Dark pink again then the image which is from an old Kanban sheet.  I still have a few of these which I find really handy.  I used to love when you could down to the Kanban Factory Shop and fill the boxes for £10 or £20
The verse  was also part of the sheet, I have mounted it on the same card as the main image.
Stamped Happy Birthday added a few flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling in I really appreciate it
Till next time
