Happy 60th Birthday

Good morning to you all

and I hope you had a lovely weekend, my own started on a fabulous high.  It was the lovely Sandra's 60th birthday (well actually she has been celebrating for almost two weeks - with different groups of family and friends) but Friday night was the night of the crafties. No crafting this time just eating some lovely nibbles provided by us all and the wonderful host Polly and lots of wine, starting off with some raspberry liqueur and bubbly with a raspberry floating on the top provided by the lady herself Sandra.

so to start with here is the photo the awesome Steve took of us all, wow don't we all look so fabulous

and then he took a photo of us all 

here is mine, totally thrilled as I don't do photo's of me normally

isn't he fabulous :) going to hire him every time I go out lol x

and then the card I made for Sandra, I loved creating this for her over two days

This is an 8" card

with lots of layers texture and depth
The ribbon plaiting is now going to be our next crafty meet up session.
You can see below all of the items used

A labour of love just for Sandra!!

it was a fabulous night and cannot wait for our next get together
