18th Birthday!

Afternoon blogging buddies.

Another quickie post for me today, I seem to have so much to do and very little time to do it in this week, everything seems to all come at once some how, oh well enough of my whinging and onto the card.

I cut the number out on the 'Portrait' but I did struggle with it a bit as I'd never done a number in this way before, I've cut numbers out, but never within the card, so a lovely blogging buddy, Shirley, helped me out with how to go about it, she's an absolute star, she does make some lovely cutting files if you happen to fancy taking a peek, you'll find her blog HERE. Now I've got the swing of things, I'll be doing more like this me thinks!

 The card is for a 'Great Nephew' of mine, sure does make me feel old now this one's reached eighteen!

As usual, challenges and recipe below, hope you like and thanks for dropping by.
