sending you birthday wishes

today i am showing a birthday card for a dear school friend who i haven`t seen for years ~but have met ( talking after 30 years) back through facebook ~ the wonders of facebook!!! (so lisa close your eyes until the 23rd)
for this card i used the wonderful sketch on SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY #70 (never miss their sketches they are my fave ~ bet they think oh gosh not her again!!)




used some new s.e.i papers, rubber romance (girlfriends on bench stamp), sizzix flower and swirl dies, stamin`up circle word stamp, cardcraft card candy and some stickles glitter.

so what is up with blogger then??? hard to log in, won`t let me log out ~my blog list on my dashboard is 50ft wide ~need to stand over the other side of the room to get a focused look of half a pic/wording!! why do they have to fix it it when it ain`t broke???? oh friday moan time!!

well it is gorgeous weather again here today ~to beds stripped and sheets out ~think i may have a go at sorting out the garden ....but then again have some new stamps to play with ( got them stuck on EZ last night).....mmmmmmmmmmmm garden...or stamp ..only one way to find out ..yes harry hill is back on tv this weekend and my boys are so happy!!! (sorry only the british bloggers will know what i am talking about)
hope you have a fab weekend!
