I made this card for my sister Margaret who is having her 60th Birthday. I wanted to create something she would like and as she has always enjoyed parties, I felt she would love this image of a Margarita that I picked out at Oak Pond Creations. It’s also a play on her name, so I split the name so she gets the fun side of what I have created and she can clearly see what she is affectionately known as - Marg. I used my Provo Craft Circa 12pts stamp to create the word ..MARGARITA, it's one of the first stamps I ever bought and hardly use ..we all have a few things we buy with good intentions and then forget we own them. I'm on a mission to resort my craft I can find things better and put the stuff I use all the time at the front. I'm one of those messy arty types, and even I can't believe how much stuff I need out to make just one card. All tips or links greatly appreciated!July 2012 Sport Carnival & Cards 084
