Life begins at 40

At least that is what they say! Last month was Hel's 40th birthday, and over the years that I have known her, through the good times, and the bad, she has always been cheerful, and happy. Hels is my Creative co-ordinator, and I love her artwork, and her very funny blog.. always makes me smile in the mornings when I am feeling grumpy! In my normal fashion, I wanted to make her something special for a card for her birthday. As always, I left it to the last minute! As I know she got this..lol  actually I did manage to post it in time, there's a first :) I thought I would show you what I made. It was done in a hurry, so I could get the post!!! A piece of advice.. never leave things to the last minute!!! I used some Teresa Collins papers , my bind-it-all, and some distress ink, a couple of pieces of Idea-ology, and absolutely no stamps at all!
Talking of stamps, I am spending my days at the moment designing new ones for you.. lots of eyestrain, lots of emails too and froing, and lots of coffee!! They will be with you soon... watch out for the sneak peeks!
Have a very Creative Day
Hugs
