Happy Birthday Kath!

It was Kath's Very Special Birthday yesterday - the big 60! And, well, for such an occasion a lot of ribbon is called for and a card to fit it all on! So I made her this (be warned a bit picture heavy!):

All the writing is done by my own fair hand (my handwriting isn't quite like that but I've tried to do it in a doodly way)
And bits of glitter have been added here and there! Photos are from Kath's recent Fiskars demo which I snaffled from her blog!
You'll have to excuse the hand for a prop but the card wouldn't lie flat for me to take a photo! And for those who have young children - from which programme does the above quote come from?!

And at the Fiskars demo extravaganza, it was noted that Kath wore slippers (which fell apart) so I imagined them to be fluffy bunny ones.....
A little bit of glitter in her hair and on her nose....

And her crafting Buddy!

Sorry he looks a bit cross-eyed on this photo, just unfortunate how the eyes had settled!

And the last tag comes out of the pocket

To say which papers I have used!

A very Happy Birthday Kath!!
