Life has been super busy in the past week preparing for the 17th birthday of the Rotary Exchange student we are hosting. He and 8 friends are spending 3 days on a house boat next week, wakeboarding, water skiing and generally having a fun time. I've been cooking and freezing heaps of food for them, preparing lists, packing supplies etc as I won't be there to assist.
Today, I woke up to the sound of a rooster crowing (I don't want to think what time that was!), sun shining and the sound of birds and crows and no traffic. I'm in country Western Australia staying with my lovely friend Fiona for a few days before going on to visit with my Mum.
I haven't had much time to create as a result of the activities above, but I did manage this card for our niece Aisha who is turning 9 tomorrow. This is an image I stamped a ages ago while at a stamping day with friends. The shape was a bit tricky, so I've kept it all quite simple. The '9' is die cut from the Timeless Type sizzlits and I covered it with rhinestones as every girl loves a bit of bling!
