Its been a strange start to the New Year , with being poorly , but ready or not it was my Daughters 18th Birthday this month.
As usual I made her card , and this year her icon Freddie Mercury helped with the theme.
I chose this image of a statue of Freddie which overlooks the sea as I thought the colours were fab.
On the inside a classic image of Freddie with his arm held high
which held 2 black ribbons pulling a silver 18 on the opposite page.
I used some of the new Tim Holtz tissue to line the page and give it the music feel.
In the very centre I stamped the gate and frence
the hearts and wings , and a quote .
Over the page a candlestick
I also made her a birthday cake, black.....but that suits her very well.
It was my intention to add a marzipan candlestick to the cake
but when it was finished I didnt like it so it didnt actually end up anywhere but the bin ....
Shes very grown up now, dont know where those last 18 years have gone
She had a lovely birthday although spent it quietly with her friends, shes not one for fuss.
And just thought id end this post with a picture of my little Granddaughter Edie , whose coming on a treat and is an absolute joy .
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend, I have the morning off work today which is a change for me , but im back there this afternoon till 8pm.
Thanks for stopping by and for leaving any comments as always its much appriciated
