A crafty afternoon

Good afternoon, hope you are all well? I'm slowly improving again :) My sister told me during the week that my nephew's girlfriend will be 21 next Saturday so I said I'd make a card for her, here it is:
It's a Magnolia stamp which I stamped and coloured using watercolour crayons some time ago. I glittered it up today as Kat loves glitter. I used stardream gold card and the patterned paper is by Imaginisce "all kinds of happy - party poppers". The wording is Doodlebug mini just my type which I glittered using Doodlebug sugar glitters.

I love sketch designs and came across this one which caught my eye on 2Sketches4You, along with that and some free paper and rub on images from a magazine I created the following card. I like the way it turned out but as always am critical of my own work, the rub ons were quite hard to rub off and kept coming away on my fingers so am not overly happy with the wording.
Not sure yet whether Mum will receive this card or not. She loves flowers so would like it but ... we will see.

David and I are off to dinner tonight to a try new fish restaurant called Go Fish. Hope it's as good as we've been told.

Take care and thanks for looking :)

Your card is really beautiful -- it reminds me of Laura Ashley's style -- I really like it!

Valerie, this is a lovely card, I know what you mean about the rub ons though, do not ask me about Papermania ones !!

Great to see you playing on 2 Sketches 4 You, they do some fab sketches and they'll really get your mojo going.
