The big 50

Was asked to make a card for a friends husbands 50th birthday. No special instructions as she was kind enough just to leave it up to me She has a wicked sense of humour so I am really hoping that this somewhat tongue in cheek card will appeal

I have used a couple of stamped images from Murray and Ethel plate #2 Coloured with promarkers I cut the 50th and the name with my new toy a cricut Expression and used papermania lettering for the happy birthday. The papers were from my stash. I'm quite pleased with the result but it's always a bit of a worry when you are making it for someone else as you can never to totally sure it will be what they want.
Dragon lady if you are reading this I apologise fo not yet responding to your very kind blog award but I will do so soon promise!


  1. Hey there

    Great card. I saw these stamps on Create and Craft last week aren't they fab. Your card is amazing and I am sure it will go down well. No probs with the award.

    take care

  2. Great card - I am a great fan of these stamps - and I know what you mean about making cards for other people - never quite sure how they are going to react - so far its been good - afterall there is no comparison with a shop-bought (sorry for swearing) card!
