40th Birthday Card

I've had no mojo all week so it was a bit of a struggle to make this card,!  If my memory serves correctly I think Nicola's a big fan of giraffes, so hopefully she likes this!

I've used an old Whipper Snapper stamp - coloured with watercolour pencils and then Wink of Stella added to his markings.  I've chalked my background using an MFT stencil.  Sparkly peel off numbers from stash, and Paper Smooches sentiment / alpha / heart die.

No mojo????? Which I could make something this good with no mojo! With regard to Custard and the inhaler: should be interesting. I can hide a tablet in some tuna but I think he'd notice if I tried to hide an inhaler! I'll keep you posted, Jo x

Hi Lynne this is fantastic a fabulous image and lovely colours and card design an excellent make. I do love your header is it new? I have had quite a few comments about the cookies and it looks like it is a new EU directive and we just have to put up with it, go figure.
