yep - it's another birthday card ...


This is the last post from me this week as we are taking the children to see their grandparents this weekend - which means no cooking and cleaning for me all weekend along with free babysitters to look after the children while my husband and I go and see the final Harry Potter film!  How excited am I!!!!

This card was for one of the girls in our office, I've just been looking back and it looks quite like one I did a couple of weeks ago.  I just can't help it - I love these yellow papers!  I've got one with flocking on, that came as part of the pack, that I'm dying to use but haven't found the perfect project as it's so lush!

 The roses were originally white but I coloured them with my promarkers.  It hasn't shown up very well but the yellow flowery paper is actually covered in glitter!  I love it so much, I'll probably cry when it's all gone - I've probably got half of a 12x12 sheet left!

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Just for You
Cupcake Craft - Your Favourite Cupcake - (No 1 -Flowers)
Freshly Brewed - Triple Play ( Three flowers)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Sew Many Cards - Glitter (on the flowers and the yellow flowery paper - honest!)
Allsorts - Free and Easy
Southern Girls - Birthday Card
My Grafico - Anything Goes
The Stamping Boutique - Monthly Challenge

Anyway - have a nice weekend everyone!!

Thanks for looking.
