'Koality' birthday time

Hello friends

Yes I would love to be able to spend some quality Birthday time with the recipient of this card...but sadly I know that cannot be so a card is the next best thing yes?...a hug in an envelope as they say.......that's if it has traveled all those miles and arrived in Australia of course.
So Happy Birthday to my youngest is his card.....

He is not a sloppy sentimental type so I am hoping this suits him!

I hope your weekend is going well, thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit me.If you leave me a very much appreciated..... I will return the favour.

Sparkle at 40!

Hi friends!

A beautiful Autumn day here today..I hope it is the same with you....and that you are all well.

You may need your sunglasses for today's card because it is literally...SPARKLE!

The background is sparkle texture paste through Uniko's broken line stencil...done in two colours and rotated 90 degrees. I die cut the 40 from some lovely no shed glitter card that matched the jade paste perfectly and also cut it twice from plain card and mounted it up to five depth. It also sits on 3D foam on the card. A final addition of purple sequins and some little punched stars ....ta -daa....

It didn't turn out quite like the picture in my mind...but then nothing generally does. I'm hoping the recipient likes it!.....Oh to be 40 again but know what I know now!
Another view just to help you see the sparkle more.

Must dash...lots to do as usual. 'Thank you' so much for popping in and if you have left me a comment...another 'Thank you' very much appreciated as I know how time is precious to us all.

Hope you all have a good rest of the week...take care..
