IT'S TAKEN ME ALL DAY, BUT IT'S DONE...

Hope everyone is having a jolly Bank Holiday weekend?
I spent the day making this for my best girlfriend's 40th next weekend. We met in 6th form and have been firm friends ever since. She's tall, slim, blonde, pretty (hate her) and a language teacher. She and her hubby own a motorbike shop, so the image inside is quite perfect.




Wish I could say that this was all my own idea, but if I'm honest, it's totally poached from one done by the very talented (if a bit peculiar) Dawny P. So thank you very much, chick.



I did it slightly differently but still made is a card-in-a-card thing.


The papers are from Pink Petticoat and the image is one I got in a swap but I believe is from StampingBella. It's covered in little sayings about being 40 - like "You should by now be able to say 'uranus' without giggling" and so on (I can't, for the record!).

It took me ages to line up the holes on the left and then hunt for the last remaining green eyelet I had which dropped to the floor and disappeared for a while. Then I spent ages choosing the right colours for her bike and leathers.

I think I like it. I do like the papers and I love the idea, but not sure it all fits togther the way I saw it in my head this morning!! We'll see. xx
