Happy Wednesday to you all!

I`m a bit late coming on today as I`ve been to see Mum this morning. As you all know she is in the late stages of Alzheimers Disease. She has lost so much weight these past few months it is unbelieveable. Apparently it all to do with the illness but when it`s your Mum it`s very upsetting. Anyway I`ve been and she`s fine so I left her listening to the local radio station.

It will be my eldest grandaughters 14th birthday in April and I wanted to make her card a bit different this time. Fourteen is one of those funny ages when you`re not a kid anymore but not quite grown up either, I always think. She`s a very girlie girl and loves her pinks so I thought I`d do something a bit funky and retro for a change but still frilly and girlie.

The DP is Dovecraft retro florals.
I cut 2 borders with the spellbinders Borderbilities
classic lace border die in bright pink pearl card.
I added a ribbon and bow (ofcourse) in matching pink and a flower from Prima.
The sentiment is computer generated because I don`t have a stamp and is cut out with a nesties labels 4 die.

Thanks for looking...Lynne xxx
