Happy 50th Birthday Tina

Last weekend I did a little road trip with two of my friends.  I drove down to Tully Heads, 2 hours south of where I live, none of us had been there before.  We stayed in a cabin at Googarra Caravan Park, very happy and friendly staff.  We then joined in Tina's BBQ celebrations for her 50th birthday - a great night with her sailing friends, son and his family and her Mum and Dad.  Also her best friend that flew up from Woolongong and surprised her on Saturday.

I used this card on Etsy as inspiration for the card that I created for Tina.  Really love the end result.

Facebook is such a helpful tool at times.  I went through Tina's photos on Facebook and cropped this one to how I liked it.  Added the pearls for a little class as she is turning 50 after all.  Created the party hat with the glitter card stock I bought from Blue Edge Crafts, a little bit of blue ricrac trim and a split pin flower.  The sentiments are all computer generated.  I saw the bottom sentiment on a couple of cards when googling and thought it was very apt for a sailor.

Well school holidays are on here in Queensland which means I have a little time to do some jobs that having been building up.  Like mulching my poor dry, dry gardens.  So that is where I will be most of this week.  Hope you have a good one and thanks for dropping on by.
