Number cards

Hi everyone, I trust all is well with you all.Sorry I didn't
get around to commenting much last week.Explanation below !
Right onto my  LIM  card, it's 'one layer card' week
again and the theme is................
"Just one would do, but you may have as many as you wish!"
Hmmm quite easy I thought, thankyou C&J :) Anyway here
is what I came up with. I made two versions, not sure which
 I like best....well maybe the first one seeing as it's PINK again

The wording says..... 'Time to celebrate'.

The wording says.... 'don't worry it's only a number '.

ps. It was my  birthday on Thurs so I have been very busy
 doing 'stuff'. I got a lovely smart mobile phone from my daughter
 (she upgraded and gave me her old one, but it's only a
 couple of years old so still fabulous)...............
 plus a  whole years contract paid for & some cash towards
 a new tablet ( Nexus) I want. I was gobsmacked !
 She spent all one  afternoon  teaching me how to use it
 too, (my old phone is an antique lol). I got cash from my
 OH and my sons towards my tablet & a few craft things
 also... woo hoo. 
I had a lovely birthday, paddle and  picnic at the beach in
 glorious weather. Craft show visit  next day &  a big family
 'do' here yesterday as three of us have birthdays within a
 few days of each other....... (still worn out lol). 
 We are going for a swimming/spa day & lunch
out tomorrow with  our son, his lovely wife & our
 beautiful grandson.Life seems very hectic atm.

Have a lovely week everyone whatever you have planned,
I hope to rest a bit I think ...must be an age thing !

 Oh and a very big welcome to my latest follower  Deepti
also , welcome aboard  :)

Sorry for the long post AGAIN !

These are fabulous Viv... but I think you know which is my favourite! I love how you've done the pink behind the sentiment... would love to know how you've achieved it?

We've had a busy few days too....... and I've been spoiled rotten for my 60th... I even possess a Tiffany necklace! But the most important thing was to see family and good friends gathering.... I enjoyed it so much! Isn't it nice to have August birthdays? LOL!

Big hugs

Viv said...

Thanks Christine......err yes the PINK one I guess lol.I used distress ink and dabbed it onto an acrylic block then onto the card....hit and miss if you like the pattern though :)
Glad you had a great time & oooh that necklace sounds fab.Yes August is the best time isn't it I agree :)xx

Viv said...

Thanks Chrissie, it was the 8th...oh yes fabby time :) xx

Happy birthday Viv! I'm glad you had a lovely time and were just a little bit spoiled... you deserve it!

I love the two number cards you made, they're very cool. I really like how you added the colour in the background, all the drips and puddles of ink look wonderful.
