10 Birthday Wishes

Today my little niece Fleur is celebrating her 10th birthday. My record of immaculate timing for cards arriving on time has been scared. Not totally my fault, as it seems the Dutch post is on strike. I just spoke to Ingrid on Skype, but Fleur was at another birthday party so I couldn't congratulate her myself.

Fleur, I wish you a lovely birthday and hope that your card will arrive soon.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper: October Afternoon 'Homemaker' | ribbon | Foam letters: American Crafts Thickers | Chipboard Frame: Tattered Angels | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Mixed Messages) | Glitter: Stampin'Up | roses | Die: Spellbinder Nestabilities (Labels Eight)| Ink: Stampin'Up (Chocolate Chip)

I have a lot more things to show you, but I've been buried under the design of the Graduation Yearbook in the past week, which meant everything has fallen by the wayside. The deadline for the yearbook was on Friday. I handed it over to the printer on schedule, and ironically enough I was very pleased that after a full week I could get actually get back to my ironing.

We still have one busy week left before the school year finishes. Rebecca is  After that we have almost 7 weeks off! I'm definitely looking forward to that.

Your card is gorgeous, Lisette. I'm sure Fleur loves it! Too bad it hasn't arrived here yet due to the strike. The papers are gorgeous. I haven't bought this OA collection yet, but will do so soon.

Gefeliciteerd met je nichtje en wat een schitterende kaart. De post staakt inderdaad, ik twijfel zelfs of het wel zin heeft om kerstkaarten te sturen.

This is so cute and pretty! I love the bow!
Stinks about your timing though...I'm rather at the opposite end of the spectrum, so I'm still impressed! ;)
