Another Birthday Card...

Hello,

Just a quick post for me as it's late and I'm tired, but I won't have chance to post this tomorrow as I've got to work late and then go and cheer up one one of my best bud's up as she's having a bit of a poo time at the minute.  I'll take her some cake I think - that always cheers me up!

This card is for Auntie Ruth as she is 60 at the weekend!  I like to put my cards on top of the fireplace for a day or so before sending to decide if I like them or not and I think I'm going to alter it before I send it to add a sentiment.   Anyway, I really love this paper, the picture doesn't do it justice, partly as the photo was taken about 10 minutes ago and 11.30pm isn't known for it's abundance of natural light.  It's from Papermainia but I have no idea what it's called!

I'm also fairly chuffed with myself as I stamped this image myself rather than the digi's I prefer to use.  I freely admit that I SUCK at stamping, as I always end up with parts of the image missing, even following the billion expert tips I've been given - good ink & paper, ink pad to the stamp etc.  So what did I do this time?  I inked up the stamp and then put it on the table and pressed the paper on the stamp.  I'm sure I've made some horrible stamping faux pas however it worked for me!
I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:
Also hello to my not so new follower who I think I've missed off my hello's - Almondeyez2000!

Anyway I'm off to bed in a min so night night all - thanks for looking!
