Age is just a number!

Hello there...a late night post from me today!

I've had a nice day, my work sorted out my laptop so I could access my emails from home...that meant I didn't have to struggle through the snow/ice to work today! Woo hoo! I very happily worked on my spreadsheets while wrapped in a duvet! A very productive day and I didn't moan about being cold once!

I've got a quick card for you this evening...to be honest I think I should have given it to my boyfriend last week because he seems so concerned about getting older (I'm rolling my eyes as I type this because I'm older than him!!).


Just in case you can't read the sentiment it says: "Happy Birthday! Remember that growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional". Something I think we should all live by!

This card is for three challenges:

Cute card Thursday - Colour challenge - The Blues
PaperPlay Challenges - Colour challenge - monochrome or shades of one colour
Charisma Cardz Challenge - sketch with a twist - use a sentiment and no image

All three blogs have some gorgeous DT cards on show - go take a peek!

This was a nice layout to use and I enjoyed the challenge of using a sentiment with no image. I also enjoyed the challenge of working with one colour - I had to rummage through my paper stash!

Right, I'm off to bed! Thanks for stopping by today.
