40th birthday card and box

Hiya my luvly blogging buddies, I hope your all keeping well.  Gosh I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted anything to my blog, mind you I've hardly had chance to do any crafting or blogging for that matter lately, life is taking over and time to myself these days is a hooo

I was asked to make a 40th birthday card for the wife a work collegue of my hubbies.  I've so many 40th birthdays coming up over the next couple of weeks, well loads of birthdays in general at the moment.  Stephen will be 40 really soon and that's getting me all stressed out cos I'm trying to organise things and they're not happening as planned......I'm in denial that he is 40, he's coping fine but me...well the shock and disbelief is beyond, where did all those years go to, heaven help me next year when I'm 40...oh god I'm dreading it.......pmsl.

Well anyway back to the card.  The papers are a freebie download from Shabby Princess.  Miss Anya has been coloured with Copics, flowers, ribbon, gems and pins from my stash and yep got me sewing machine out again for this one.

Here's what the inside looks like, the swirly gems are Prima

I am really sorry for being such a dreadful blogging buddy to you all, seems like ages since I last left any comments, so huge apologies to you all, I will try to catch up with everyone as soon as I can.  In the meantime, take care all, happy crafting/blogging, loads of luv xx vicki xx
