Over the Hill!... what hill?

One of hubby's work colleagues is turning 50 this coming week... And he wanted me to make her a humorous card.  So off to Bugaboo to check out the digi stamps there.  Bugaboo have some really good humorous images. 

Sharon's turning 50!

I printed out this Stella image and coloured with Copics and some gel pens.  It is such a fun card.   Inside I added the sentiment " Age is a matter of mind over matter... if you don't mind, it doesn't matter"  Hubby has bought her a walking stick for her present.  He and Sharon have worked together for over 21 years.

Over the weekend I got lots of cards made... but most are for design work so can't be shared for awhile.  I can share this one though.... I made it for our niece Nicola who gave birth to a little girl last week.  She already has a little boy of 3, so now her and James have their pigeon pair.  As yet we don't know her name ~ just that she was only 5lbs 5oz.. just a little dot.  Had fun buying some little pink clothes for her
Baby Girl


Hope you have a great week...

Great cards, Dawn! Loving the "over the hill" card, the image makes me smile. Your coloring is fabulous, especially the red hair.
I'll be making a blue baby card really soon and your sweet little pink card is such wonderful inspiration.
blessings to you, my friend!

Both great cards. The pink baby one is very cute and an amusing one for the "over the hill".
