Birthday card for my dearest friend ....

As I have mentioned in a previous post, it is Tracey's birthday today!!!

Happy Birthday Tracey, hope you have had a fantastic day!!!!

Here is the card I made!!!

The stamp I used simplifies how I feel when I see Tracey and is aptly named Hello Sunshine!!!

A few photos of the front of the card as it was very hard to photograph it!!!

I got a little adventurous and made an acetate front! I admired Jeanette Comerford's wonderful Christmas acetate card and thought I would give it a go!!!





Please excuse my finger, lol!!!

The invite at the back




The reason for this card is that Chloe is getting Confirmed in May, and I wanted to send out some invites to family. I have 9 to make, so I am going to use the challenges to get them done! They will probably be all the same colours just different types of cards. Unfortunately because of the day (a school night) and the time (7:00 pm), our family's won't be able to come. I have already spoken to my mum and dad and they are definitely coming. Chloe asked my brother's fiancee to be her sponsor and Mairead said yes, so they will be coming too.
