birthday card for Tracy

A birthday card for our dear daughter-in-law to be, Tracy.  It is a cUp decoupage print (designer Sandie Burchell).  This was very simple to do, with reasonably easy cutting, and was layered with shallow foam pads, so that it didn't stick up too high.  This is a style I'm currently favouring, with more layers, but less height (1mm pads).  It's mounted onto core'dinations background card and glittered with stardust glitter glue.

Just a short post today, as I'm up to my eyes in Easter cards, and a confirmation card and bracelet.  Not to mention the 12 Georgian petticoats for the show in a few weeks - no rest for the wicked!  Off to see Top Hat tonight at Woking, with Tom Chambers and Summer Strallan, as one of our ex-pupils is dancing in the male chorus.  It goes to the West End in May, and everyone who's seen it says it's brilliant, so really looking forward to this.

Thanks very much for visiting my blog.  I really appreciate all the comments you leave, and hope to visit your blogs too in the next couple of days.

xx Jill
