Commissioned 50th birthday

Good morning everyone, what a beautiful sunny start we have to the day here. I hope it is the same for you wherever you are...hugs

I am very late this morning so I will get this posted and come back later to catch up on your blogs!

My cousin asked for a music card for her son, but she asked me not to put 5o on it!
Like my daughter, Daniel is a singer/guitarist, so I used a photograph I took of one of her guitars some years ago. The basecard is plain white card from stash, folded an cut to fit in a 6x6 envelope.
Bronze card also from stash, bought long ago from PDA.
Panel embossed with Embossalicious 6x6 folder.
Music notes cut with ancient provocraft dies.
Guitar printed onto semigloss photocard, to give it a bit of shine, and fussy cut, then rasied onto sticky foam pad.
Computer generated seniment also raised with sticky foam pads
Ooooooooops! Nearly forgot to say that I rounded the corners with my new Cropodile corner chomper :o)

This is perfect. I sounds like there is a lot of talent in your family, from music to artistry. I love that music embossing folder...haven't seen one quite like that...probably only sold in the UK. Yup, I had a backup but it didn't wont to restore correctly so I'm having to do it the old fashion way. So far there are about 5 files I can't retrieve or find. You are the 2nd person to tell me to have "2" backup drives..which I'm going to buy the 2nd one today!!!!!! I was doing all I could do to hold back the tears thinking I could have lost YEARS worth of worth and yes, pictures as well. I still must download some programs before I'm ready to dive back into cards, but I think I see light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks for the 2nd recommendation of another back up...definitely makes sense to do it with others telling me.
