Wise "Old" Owl

Morning all.

Today's project was a gift for one of the secretaries at my work. She turned 50....but it was a very covert operation. However, I could not let the event go by unheralded. It kind of had a "I don't see/hear/or speak of 50" feel to it.

I was immediately reminded of a card I saw on Kerry Bunting's blog here. to go with it, I had a wee post it holder from Bronwyn Eastley's blog here. A tweak here and an adjustment there and this is what I came up with.......

And the gift together.......

I will admit to doing a very big happy dance when this one was finished as it looked better than I had hoped. The best "win" was being able to separately stamp the sentiment on the card and have it balance....real "fist-pump" moment. The recipient really got a giggle out of it too...and laughter on your birthday is a great gift.

The post it note holder is form Dawn Griffiths blog here.

Thanks for popping by.

Lynda your card and gift are just gorgeous and I love how you tied it in so well with the birthday girl not wanting to acknowledge 50! Priceless! Great colours too, so vibrant together.
