Special Birthdays at Fab'n' Funky

 Good morning, this week is galloping past, it's already Wednesday - have no idea what happened to Monday and Tuesday. I'm spending a fair amount of time out in the garden, we're trying to catch up with all the things we didn't get done earlier in the spring when it did nothing but rain, at least the weather is lovely now! 

My card today is for this fortnight's challenge at 

Fab'n' Funky,

 it's hosted by our lovely Pat who has chosen the theme of

  SPECIAL BIRTHDAYS (special person, special age etc).

There are a few family 70th's looming on the horizon so I made a card for one of them. The 70 is computer generated and printed onto the DP then fussy cut. The stamp is one of my faves, it's from Art Impressions- I have a few of these 'oldies' and use them loads. The lovely lady is coloured up with Copics, paper-pieced dress and fussy cut. I've raised her up with foam pads to add a little dimension. The sentiment came with the stamp- I drew a speech bubble round it.

You'll find some wonderful inspiration from my lovely team over at Fab'n' Funky, then why not join in- after all we all have special people in our lives...and they all have birthdays!

Thanks for visiting, enjoy your day.

Absolutely brilliant card and I love the lovely oldie with her fire extinguisher! Such a fun card for a special birthday and I'm sure that they will love it too. It reminds me of my dad's 70th birthday party and him blowing the candles out before we had finished singing to him. His reply was sing faster, all those candles are melting my cake!! Michelle x
