What a week!

Well, what a week it has been.....soooo busy! Starting on Monday with my birthday (and no this card is not how old I am!) and then in to am massively busy week at work involving working all sorts of wierd and wonderful hours, and trying to fit taxi service for my son, and all the other domestic stuff in between.

In short the week has gone in a whirl and I am only just finding time to sit down for a bit of blog time.

So here's a card that I made a while ago, to fit in with a request form a friend for their mother's 70th birthday.
I have used a lovely SWALK image, which I coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens and printed the backing papers from one of my Cute Companions of the first CDs that I ever had, so it's good to see that I am still getting good use out of it.

I have gone mad with my nesties and grand nesties to make the actual card and, since it's a birthday, I just had to throw in a bit of glitter and pearl drops as well!

I hope that you like the card. Here are a few challenges that I would like to enter:
