"Birthday Card"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any poppers by, welcome to my little corner of Blogland.  A place where without all you wonderful people calling in, leaving your wonderful comments and helpful information would be a total waste of time.
LYDIA & KATE:-  thank you for the address of Sevenhills website.  I had not heard of that one before.  Unfortunately they are also out of stock of the Altenew Stamps Sets I am looking for.  I will just have to have patience till the new supplies come over from America to all the shops that stock them.  
Today I have a Birthday card to show you.   It was made for a special friend of mine.  Its her 50th birthday today, I have not put 50 on the card, I just love that sentiment and felt that was enough:-

Base card approx 8x8
White Mats
SW Foundation card in Blue
Signature Die from Joanna Sheen used for the Lace
SB "A Gilded Life" Garden Blooms Die for the Roses
Stick Pins made using SW Bead Packs
Sentiment from a SW Stamp Set.
Top Panel embossed with a Roses Embossing Board 

I have read a few comment about the sharp points on the stick pins.  
I try to stick them right into the card so no sharp points stick out.
You can gets special ends but if you don`t have them here is a "Tip"
Cut off the very sharp point,  pop a blob of glue on and stick a very small bead on ... job done.
That` it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Have a wonderful weekend

  5. Hi Patricia,
    Made a hash of the last comment.
    I have found a site called Dragonfly Designs, they have a lot of Altenew in stock.

  6. A gorgeous card Patricia. Very elegant. Have a nice weekend. hugs, Marlies

  7. Hi Patricia,
    what a very wonderful card, and it has your signature Roses on too.
    Lovely sentiment, and your right some people don't want to be reminded of their age.
    I love that colour blue card also.
    Have you had any luck with your windows 10.
    My son has done a swap of computers with my hubby, and the one he has just had from him has windows 10 on it.
    So I took a look, and can't see the problem your having as it all seems much the same to me.
    Are you having trouble finding the desk top maybe?
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  11. Hi Patricia
    Lovely card in very Wedgewood colours. The sentiment is super.
    I'm guessing its a bead you pop on though you did have me tittering at the thought of putting on a beard lol!
    Best wishes.

    Ps........I read your comment on John's blog today. He does demos and workshops if a craft shop contacts him so if you ask your local craft shop to get in touch with him via email, you have a chance of him venturing North of the Border.
    Hope that helps.

  18. Hi Patricia, it's a lovely sentiment and perfect for this birthday. (also goes beautifully with those gorgeous flowers and super embossing on the background). Couldn't help you with win10, as I reverted back to win7. I was going to try to help with the linking if you want to reference someone else's blog. I think I helped Hazel with this, so she can show you I bet! Happy wkend. TFS
