HOW OLD ... 97!

Happy Sunday

Another scheduled post I'm afraid but I will be trying to view your blogs from abroad, fingers crossed the WiFi connection will be playing ball - especially as I'm heading to Pixies playground with this creation along with a couple of other challenges.

You might be wondering who is 97 and whether you've read it wrong.  No you haven't!  My dear Nanna will be this ripe old age whilst I'm on holiday so had to whisk this into the post early.  She is such a fun lady despite old age and declining health; she's always got a giggle up her sleeve and a song on her lips. Fantastic spirit for an oldie so just hope her genes pass my way!

Card Recipe:

Image & Sentiment: OLD and I can't remember - should fit nicely with the Creative Inspirations Challenge!
Papers: TK Maxx & Glitter card from my stash
Buttons, bakers twine and pearls from my stash
Dies used Sizzix Framelit Banners & Ovals plus Martha Stewart Butterfly punch
and the background die was a lovely freebie from Dies to Die for and I couldn't resist leaving the centre piece in too and just removed the butterfly pieces.


Pixies Snippet Playground - Week 85
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes (optional extra of Vintage)
Creative Inspirations: Something Old (Teddy bear and Glitter Papers)
Something New (Dies to Die for oval florish Die and TK Maxx papers)
