Birthdays, past and present

It's niece number 1's birthday on Saturday my sis asked me to make a card for her. So this is what came about. Using stash galore including flowers from an ancient TSV, sissix borders. A bead sticker from a discount shop, candidate, old lace stickers from Lakeland and bargain of the week, letters stickers from Home Bargains for 29p. Have you looked at the crafty stuff in HB. There's some good stuff to pick up. I bought a horseshoe to alter from their garden department and some acrylic bunting embellishments for under £1.00.
So it got me thinking about the girls and how quickly time is passing. I had this photo of them on Georgia's 8th birthday to scrap to finish off the memory album I've been making for them. Georgia is now almost 17 and Lacey is now 11. In the photo, Lacey is poised to blow out Georgia's candles and Georgia is pleading for someone to intervene. She wouldn't upset her little sis personally but would ask Mam to do it. Now it would just be a battle for girl power.
I used Theresa Collins papers and dis some fussy cutting, the sentiment is from a making Memories card and the trail of ladybirds came from HB a few months ago, 39p.

On a totally different subject. I watched the funeral of Richard 111 tonight on channel 4. Really surreal, but fascinating. At least the winter of our discontent is nearly over, looking forward to the light nights.
Catcha later.
