Growing up is optional (Hooray!)


I was wondering why I was feeling a bit wobbly - then I remembered to have lunch, and feel soooo much better! So much so, that I want to share the above card with you and show you some lovely bits and bobs from Poppicrafts! Take a look:
Yummy isn't it?! I've just used some of the paper to make a little favour box with a new template I bought for my Big Shot - when its finished I'll share it here. I love the brads and new shaped buttons - these brads are very fairy tale-esque with princesses, hearts and frogs. I really like all the new themed brads, though I think the chocolate & cream birthday celebration ones are my favourite. Take a look for yourself at Poppicrafts before Friday, when the sale ends!

I have to confess to being very, very naughty and spending way too much at Michelle's shop. Ooops!

Back to the big card above which, you may be surprised to know (!) is for an up and coming male 40th birthday. I have wanted to use this paper from TADA for ages, and managed to match it perfectly with some ribbons from you-know-where. The quote is from Chilli Davis and reads: 'Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional' - I couldn't resist using it once I'd found it.

I am having a grown-up evening tonight, off out with a group of Mum's from school who are such great company. It'll be nice to wear something other than jeans for a change!

Enjoy your evening too.


All paper: TADA ('Flip' kit); All ribbons, pin, felt star and button: Poppicrafts; Seed beads, Dovecraft chalks, ink pads
