Nifty at Fifty

I wanted this to post at 5:37 pm today but there isn't that option so it's going to be 7 minutes early. Why? Cuz at exactly 5:37pm (9:37am Canadian time) my big sis is 50!!!! I can hardly believe it as she doesn't look 45 let alone 50...that's Tracey on the left (BLS=big little sister) yours truly in the middle (like you didn't know that lol) and Shelly (DLS=darling little sister)

This is the card I made her and believe it or not I made it AND got it in to mail ON TIME. Not sure if she's received it yet but she should have unless the plane got diverted on the way lol. 

I wasn't all that about the card by the time I'd finished it...I'm sure she's not going to like the Nifty at Fifty sentiment lol...but seeing it again here I'm actually thinking it's not bad after all. I used the FABULICIOUS  Martini Nikki, colored her in with my Copics and cut her out. I stamped my SU! calendar stamp and using my computer added the month (I did have a set of month stamps but think I sold them in my SU! sale doh!) and stamped 27 for the date. Just in case her eyesight has deteriorated since turning the big FIVE OH (boy I'm gonna be in the kaka for that one lol) I added a Cuttlebug die cut arrow pointing at the 27. It looked a bit boring so added pink nailheads for a bit of bling (bought these for the LCI store years ago and thought I threw them out by mistake but found them in the garage whilst looking for something else so will be adding them to the store asap!)
