Card for freshly made sketches and a special 50th card

Hi folks here i am again with another last minute card !!!! its for Freshly made sketches and this is the sketch

its taken me ages to put this together but probably because i have had so much on i have been out every day and even Friday evening plus i have had 2 cards to do for the OAP class this week and next as well as bake as Elvie is on holiday at Southport i just hope the weather picks up a bit for her any way will stop making excuses har har and get round to the card hope you like it

and this is the link to the challenge pop over and have a look at the fabulous designs everybody has come up with
Today i would also like to show you the something special i had been working on i mentioned it last week it was for a friends 50th birthday i had seen it on a blog but it was in a foreign language and the translator wouldn't work boo hoo so had to work from pictures i had one attempt before the finished article and was so thrilled with the outcome its a handbag card and should be decorated inside as well but i left mine blank inside so it could be used as a scrapbook page as Tracey is into scrapping and had a fabulous trip to Amsterdam for her birthday so now she has a special place to put her favorite photos of her birthday and i also made a card book to fit inside so here are the photos for you too see oh and i nearly forgot i added a row of shocking pink gems front and back on the handbag flap after i had taken the photos to give it some bling i do hope you like it

on Saturday afternoon i went to Melbourne hall for a birthday tea treat with Tracey and some other friends it was sooooooo nice and so lovely of Tracey to organise it for us to all share in her celebrations we had sandwiches followed by cake with lots of tea and coffee also lots of chatter n laughter sorry no photos silly me forgot the camera so you will just have to imagine it !!!!!
My other news is that after my 6 week course at the leisure centre was over last Wednesday and i lost weight and plenty of inches i was very pleased with the results and have decided to keep it up so no slacking for me having said that i have been rather naughty this weekend so back on the diet after Monday as i cant not have a piece of cake at class especially as I've made it well my excuse har har and that's all from me for this week i hope you've enjoyed your visit to my blog and thank you to everybody who leaves me such lovely comments they are soooooooo appreciated all take care and happy crafting Luv Sue x
