Big 40!!.......

Yes today is that day - my 40th Birthday!!!!! Yes I am old!!!!! My girls have been teasing me all morning - telling me I look old and grey.


I have been really lucky and received so many lovely handmade cards - I have also received some lovely stash pressies from some of my forum friends - how generous and fabby they are! Thank you to everyone who sent me a card I appreciate them all so much. I will post some photos when the light is better here.


I have been a lucky girl - got a laptop from DH and some lovely stash from my girls along with vouchers and some other pressies too. Mum gave me money so I can choose something as well!




I made this quick card for the challenge on Scrummy Stash Cafe Blog - to use decorative edges. So out came my trusty scallop edged scissors!

The next 2 are really quick cards made for the DCM challenge which is to use pins and needles. I love these pins sooo much!





A few people asked about the large snowflake I used in the last post - It is cut using a sizzix die, I used some very thin chipboard ( the back of a 6 x 6 pad) and then glitter card glued on top. Thanks for all the lovely comments.

Right off now to inspect my grey hairs - my girls informed me this morning that they have doubled overnight!

Happy 40th!
You shouldn't be feeling old Sarah, you just wait until you hit your 50's like me, than you'll have something to worry about.
Have a great day.

Love the cards by the way.
