A 60th Birthday

Hello everyone how are you all doing? Hope you have had a lovely weekend. We had a nice one with family as always............my favourite time of the week :-)
Ok so I have a few cards in my drafts that I still havn't blogged, so this week I will try to show them all...........before I forget about them lol.

The one I'm showing today is actually like one I've made before, a LOTV card I made here.
This is for a lady who wanted a card for her Auntie's 60th Birthday back in February & she wanted it like the LOTV card I made only saying something different.
Now I do like each of my cards to be one of a kind, so I did change a few things just to still make this card one of a kind & unique to the recipient ;-)
Can you spot the differences between the 2 cards? I was asked to do the same but instead it needed to say 'Auntie Dilys' & have the number 60 on.

I used the same leaf die, but I changed some of the flowers & also added more flowers on this.
All of the flowers are from Live & Love Crafts, except the 2 larger purple ones.

Ok so the difference here from the other card is I added a Banner cut from a Noor Design die here, I even machine stitched around the banner & the oval ;-) The Name I heat embossed & the numbers got the Shabby White Frantage treatment ;-) Numbers are from my stash.

2 other things that make this card different are I added a larger blingy button to the bows & I added a punched edge using a MF PATP set.

The papers I used are different althought they are from the same LOTV pad..........love this pad, it really is so so pretty. The pad is LOTV 'Snow Princess' & I machine stitched all the layers.
Seam binding & button are from my stash.

Well that's it from me today, the builders arrived just before 8am & they are starting to build walls. I pushed Natalie's wheelchair in front of the conservatory door so she could see what was going on for a bit........not sure if she understands but I like to think she does........she's a clever lady really ;-)

Ok I'm going now but I want to say a HUGE thank you for putting up with me & my bad blogging, you all really rock. Thank you for your support & lovely comments.
Tatty bye lovelies, take care & enjoy your day
