Still Rocking at 50

Hi there Peeps,

Another day and another card.  I have been trying to catch up as  my designated craft time at the weekend was interrupted with boring shopping and then we had a 40th birthday party in the evening, I really didn't want to go out and had the right hump, but as it goes it turned out to be a good night and I was glad I went.  Aren't these nights always the way!  Any how's, it's my friends birthday today and with my lost mojo I stared at my craft table for ages not knowing whether to make her a girly girl card, which I know would be her, she's always shopping, has hundreds of pairs of shoes, but not one of them is comfortable, but I wanted to get the message across that she doesn't look 50 at all so I hope she likes what I have created:-

I have been wanting to play with the Kenny K images for ages, so this gave me the perfect excuse to purchase one on Sunday.  I think she rocks!
