I was asked to make a card for someone who will be 85 and at the time I was asked I had been watching a You Tube video to help me learn to make elements for cards using my Craft Robo.  So all the parts of this card have been designed by me and cut using the Robo using up my stash of paper and card stock; a first for me.  This has to be the best year for keeping my resolution.  Maybe it is more successful because of the choice of resolution rather than my will power!!

I have entered it in the following challenges:

Pixie's Crafty Workshop:  Scraps/snippets
Secret Crafty Saturday:  Anything goes with Blue
Top Tip Tuesday:  Anything Goes
Truly Madly Crafty Challenges:  Anything Goes
Crafts 4 Eternity:  Colour challenge
