Flowers and Butterflies!

Good Evening All,  How are you all tonight?  I hope everyone is managing to keep warm, we've hit Winter again it seams and I found it really difficult staying warm today and I was in the house.

Anyway, took myself and a friend to lunch today which was lovely and caught up on all the news, then she had to go off to work and as she works in the same place as I do, I had a huge amount of sympathy for her, but it is her turn to be off next week.

Apart from starting the cleaning in the kitchen, which is part of the "Big Plan" for my holiday, I've not done much else, except make a card for one of my clients who will celebrate a land mark birthday in May. So here it is;
I've used the Flower head Stamp from Little Claire, coloured with Promarkers  and cut out.  Papers and Doily  are from Dovecraft, Princess Fairytale, Sentiment from Hunkydory, Sizzix Butterfly die, Pearls from WO, Frosted lace Sparkles around flower and Glamour Dust on Butterflies.

I hope the lady likes this, she is a bit ambivalent about turning 60 so I didn't put an age on it.
I would like to enter this into;   http://wildorchidchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/challenge-72a-sketch.html
Off now to settle down to do some knitting and watch Robin Hood, Oh I do like Russell Crow when he's in costume.
Bye for now, Kate X

Lovely card Kate. I was invited to a Women's Guild meeting to show my cards recently and when I said that I never put an age on a card each and every lady there agreed that they would have preferred their birthday cards not to have an age on them. I love the colours you have used on this card.

Hi Kate, love these flowers and the way you coloured them. Beautiful card. Age is just a number, it is how you feel that matters.

Oh Kate I love those big flowers. I'm sure she'll love it. My kitchen was on my to do list too, but not got near it yet. Still Rome wasn't built in a day!
Hugs, have a great weekend, Erika.
