Big Birthday Box card

 Hi Friends

Here at last! 

There seems to be an abundance of big Birthdays on my list this year...and this is the first one for a friend of mine.

No prizes for guessing the age!

All products used are from Crafters Companion. The butterflies were cut from a pad of acetate ones and then stuck to paper I had coloured with water pens, then a liberal dusting of glamour dust. I did try to colour the acetate, but that didn't work.

It's a while since I made one of these cards but they pack the wow factor, especially to a non crafter.

Speaking of Crafters Companion...I find it disappointing after all this time that they have introduced £3.95 postage charges for members of their scheme unless you spend a minimum of £20 for Gold and Platinum and £30 for Bronze and Silver members. It literally takes away any discount and means it becomes very expensive to buy a bargain, as the postage costs as much again! Does anyone else feel the same? I am definitely cutting back this year, due to this and also wanting to reduce my over flowing craft room somewhat. Unless you are buying big there is little to be gained I feel.

I hope you are all keeping well and warm here in the UK as we have had a return to winter, freezing temperatures and that white stuff we thought we had got away without. Roll on Spring which has supposed to have started!

Good that we alter the clocks soon and have lighter nights to look forward to.

Catch you again soon my friends

Crafty hugs and thank you for stopping by, your visits and comments are always very much appreciated.
