Who's turning fifty?

My eldest sister is turning 50 at the beginning of next year and I have made her card ... I love the cheeky sentiment of this card .... the W.T.F?  when I first saw it on a card I thought crikey that is really out there and then I read the sub title and just burst into laughter and thought what a great idea and just had to use it!
 I have used Paper Smooches alphadot stamp set and the rosette is made from pleating washi tape and then trimming it down with a circle die ... here is a close up

Christmas `fishes'

Hello there, it has been a while since I last posted a card on this blog ... I have been busy working on my family holiday albums and decided to take a break and make this card for my Sister who recently bought herself a fishing boat and loves fishing ...
The little fish out of Annabelle Stamps - beside the sea were used and I made a little fish bowl out of a circle die.  Here is a close up of the fish and bowl ...
Although my photo doesn't show it clearly but there is coloured sand at the bottom of the fish bowl.  To make my fish bowl I cut a circle out of acetate, trimmed the top, notched a ledge and then used a smaller circle to finish it off.
