Something a little different and Thank you!!

Hi everyone, just popping in to say hello and thank you for all your lovely birthday wishes!!   I've reached my half century but that's ok, it's only a number!!  But it did mean I got lots of extra special goodies, including a new camera, lots of PTI goodies (from hubby but thanks to best matey, Lesley!!).  Nick did suggest that I really didn't need any more craft stuff - how could he say such things on my birthday!!!
I've had a few days off work and I thought I would get lots of time for crafting and blogging but you know it'a already been so hectic - son's degree show last night, and then still lots of things going on over the next few days.

Anyway, the above was a card made at my lovely friend, Alex's house a few weeks ago, made by inking the embossing folder before running it throught my Bug to get this fab letterpress effect!  The label and flourish stamps and dies were from Alex's stash and I now have these on my new PTI wish list!!

Oh and to celebrate my half century, I'm going to sort out a little candy shortly!!
