Helen's Birthday Card

Woke this morning to see that there was a different set up on our computer. So decided not to touch it and see what hubby had been doing last night when he woke later. Thinking what could I do, I suddenly thought I had invited my friend Helen over for a Birthday Coffee and didn't have a card. :-0 Her birthday is today but I hadn't worried about a card as we weren't going to catch up until this Saturday for a birthday dinner with other friends. I remembered that Kaye over at Craftmad had posted the new card sketch challenge for December which I have used. Then remembered there is a challenge #2 at Sassy Designs that asked for Pink and Sparkly. That is how this card was created.

I have used an white embossed lined pre-cut card then a layer of SU Pixie Pink. Then topped that with a torn piece of wonderful pink glitter paper. Layered up some white Petaloo flowers, a pink flower and a snowflake button all from Blue Edge Crafts. Finished with these lovely white sticker greeting and flowers from the Sticker Store. Really like the end result....hope my friend does too.

Have since baked a chocolate cake to have with the coffee. Have icing ready to go so as soon as she pulls up in the driveway I will ice it. If I do it now the cake is still a little warm and I will have a puddle of icing. lol

It is looking like my terrific husband has found a way around the bug that was in our computer. So far this morning......and I am touching wood as I say this......everything is working faster and smoother.

Wishing you all a great Wednesday.
