Yesterday was my good friend Deb's birthday. It was a special birthday as you will see from the cards below. The first card is the one I gave her and the second is the card I made for her husband to give her. Deb is also a card maker and her husband Dave knows he can not give her a bought card :) It's quite funny the tricks we have to get up to so that she doesn't see the handover!
I cased this card from Julie Davison. Thanks Julie for sharing the instructions. It's such a cool card - the ribbon slides off to allow the flap to open.
Here is the card Dave gave her:
Both cards went down a treat. I am loving Pool Party at the moment - it seems to go with everything.

I have been feeling tired for the last week or so and have found out that I am low in iron. So now I'm on iron tablets which should help get the energy levels back up. I have struggled of late to find the motivation to make cards - often sitting at my desk but no inspiration coming. Hopefully that will change soon.
Have a good day.
