Happy 30th Birthday Box Card

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors 

How was your weekend? We had a quiet one. I needed a bit of down time after visiting my parents last week. Yesterday  started two weeks of invigilating for me. There are just a few of us going in. We are having the children who need extra time for their mocks. We can also read for them. The rest of the year group are taking their mocks in the classroom with their teachers. 

A few weeks ago it was our daughter's 30th Birthday. How did that happen? I had to make a special card. So this is a larger box card. I have made a few of these this year. 

For this card I actually drew the backing paper. It was something we did in the doodling sessions with Barbara Gray a while back. 

I used lots of John Next Door dies to complete this care. The Stencil Alphabet dies are so good for personalising a card. I used the Stencil Numbers too and the Stencil Sentiments. The flowers were made with the Tatty Daisy die. There are also some Small Flowers and Small Leaves on there. 

Our daughter loved this card. We had a lovely day together on the day. They have the dog now so she couldn't have a party. Hopefully one day the doggy will be able to cope with groups of people. 

Have a good week. 

As I am invigilating not much crafting is going to happen. 

Happy crafting
