Polka Doodles - Age Related Project

Good morning everyone, here's hoping you're not all snowed in again. We had sleet and snow yesterday evening and I drove to a friend's in a blizzard but thankfully it went away quite quickly.
It's Friday again and I can't believe there's only a week until Christmas - eek! We have another challenge over at Polka Doodles which is to make an Age Related Project which is because our Lou's son is turning 18.
I've chosen to make a 50th card as there is one coming up in the near future so I'm getting prepared in advance.

I decided to make a side step card having found bargain packs of ready made blanks for these in The Range - don't know about you but I find these a real fiddle and the cost of 5 blanks and envelopes was an absolute bargain at £1.99!
I've used some of the really pretty new papers from the Collectors Edition of the Sugar Birdies CD which launched on Create and Craft TV with Nikky yesterday. The CD has all the elements of the original with a fabulous new collection of papers, sentiments and stampies.
I simply layered everything on to the card blank and added cut out numbers from the really pretty collection on the CD and a sentiment from the new collection which has loads of pretty shaped greetings. I added some gems for a touch of bling.
You have until 12 noon on Sunday 26 December to get your entries in and good luck!

I've been such a bad blogger lately and it seems ages since I visited for which I apologise.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for your caring and thoughtful words, they mean so much.

I wish you and your family a lovely Chrismtas.

Hi Fliss, that is great news about those precreased cards. Have never been to the Range, but definitely will visit after Christmas. Your card is so delightful and am sure the recipient will love it. Happy Christmas to you Fliss, Annette x
