Time Flies

Recently, when I was working on my cataloguing of all my embarassingly 
large collection of stamps, a friend saw my bundle of new stamps from
 Lili of the Valley. She commented that this little fairy was so cute. When
 I told her that it was called 'Time Flies', she asked me to make a card for
her life-long friend's 70th birthday, using those words as the sentiment.
She felt that they were really appropriate for their very long friendship.

The gorgeous paper, and pearl flower 'ribbon' were purchased at the
craft show I went to in Sydney last month.

A closer look at the little cutie.

Inside the card is decorated to match the front.

My friend loved the card so much, she asked me to make another one exactly the same (except for the sentiment) for another friend's 70th birthday.The 2 friends live in different states of Australia, and have never met. I told her that I never make 2 cards the same, so we compromised...I have made another using the same image and design, but with blues and a different DP. I will show you that one another time.

My dear John has just come in for his lunch, so I am off to make a nice hot cup of tea and have a toasted ham and tomato sandwich - yummo! It is so cold here today, I may need to light the fire!

Until next time, thank you for visiting, and I wish you all "happy crafting",
