Birthday Card

Hello there!

I hope you are all doing well...We're halfway through January and a little closer to Spring. There has been a woodpecker visiting my garden this week and they say that's a good sign.

Well I survived my first exercise class of the year thank goodness... I really needed to get back to it. I had a really nice birthday last week and thank you for my lovely cards.
Today my brother will be visiting, tomorrow I am lunching with my 2 GF's and then I will be going for some scans. I've already had my hips X-rayed and I still have to have bloods done on Thursday. So it's a busy week. 
I really haven't done any papercrafting except for the card I am sharing today... I did have a big sort out and gave away a lot of my craft stuff, keeping what I use most and making room for a sewing space.
Today's card is for one of the GF's I am meeting up with tomorrow - We both have birthdays in January so we meet 'inbetween".

 I'm sorry that the photos aren't that good but I'm sure you can make out the vellum embossed with an Altenew folder layered over a stenciled background

There is a lot of shine that you can't see, I painstakingy went over the lines on the vellum with a gold glitter pen.
My friend is a wonderful knitter and has made me an aran sweater for my husband ( it's his birthday next month) so as a thank you I made a top for her

I hope she likes it and I hope it fits.

My brother has just arrived, so I promise to catch up with you all very soon - 
Till then be safe and have a beautiful day
