My Friend Cathy's 60th Birthday Card

Hi Everyone I'm back !!! Today is a sad day for America and everyone who lost their lives in this atrocity around the world. My thoughts are for all those families who have lost Mothers Fathers Brothers Sisters Aunts cousins nieces nephews, grandchildren God rest their souls.

I have had a fantastic 3 week holiday to Australia, Burma and Thailand. It was cold in Australia but Sunny, Yangon in Burma was very hectic and hot, then Monsoon weather in Thailand!! but the last 3 days it was hot and humid so got to put my swimmy cossie on but with a struggle, put on so much weight so much food everywhere the relatives kept feeding us all day afternoon and evening fit to burst, wow did we eat different foods, we went to Thailand for a rest. I'm not too keen on thai curries but love the fish and lobster and the biggest prawns I've ever seen. My sisters love thai curries. I prefer the Burmese curries. Well thats enough from me, if your friends on my facebook I have some pictures of my family on it had 1,000 photos and videos but only put about 104 on, would have taken me a month of Sundays.

Now I have made a card today for my Friend Cathy who is 60 on the 13th and I know she does not visit my blog or anyones if the truth be known. I used Craftwork cards big plain cards again, put some birds song paper which I got from W H Smiths. I think the pad is a first Edition card stock.  Cut 60 from glitter card, Flowers from WOC, celebrate is a sizzix word and the folder is a Crafts Too which I embossed and added distress inks and some silver Viva Inka paste around to give it a shine.

The inside is again another embossing folder this time a cuttlebug Happy Birthday and the sizzix pop up with the words enjoy and a heart with a little 60. I cut out one of the spellbinders shapes and put two of Lilly of the Valley sentiments.well I do hope you like this card and I hope Cathy likes it too.
Well I have chatted enough will try and be a better blogger I have so much to catch up on now.
Just a little note to one of my dearest friends. Sarah I am thinking of you too. Sarah unfortunately lost her darling mother whilst I was away and I know you would all love to send her your love and condolences.
Love and blessings to all. God bless. JO.xxxxx
