You're my Best Friend

Hi Folks
Yippee, it's the weekend and a nice three day one for me.  We are at a wedding tomorrow so got Monday off to recover and travel home.  It will be really nice spending a night away in a hotel.  Just hope the bed is comfy although if the alcohol is flowing I probably won't need much rocking to sleep lol.  Hoping to get some crafting done today.  It is my youngest daughter's 22nd birthday on Monday and not even made her cards yet!!!

Todays card share is one that my daughter asked me to make for her best friend's birthday today.

I used papers and images from the Lillibet range from Trimcraft.  I just love these little toppers, so cute.  I used kraft card for the base layers.  The Happy Birthday is a stamp set that I have had for about three years.  I stamped the large letters onto contrasting paper and cut them out.  The rest of the words were just stamped straight onto the base card.  The butterflies are all made out of parchment by my very talented Mummy.  For embellishments I used ribbon, lace, metal corners, gems and pearls and a couple of little quilled flowers.

My daughter did say to me 'Why has it got images of babies on it?'  I then had to point out that although her friend is 22 the images are not bAbies but represent them as best friends - playing together and doing each others hair.  Not sure she was convinced but seemed happy enough with the card lol.

Thanks for popping by and hope you pop back soon.  Thank you for all the lovely comments you leave me.  I really appreciate them and read every single one.
