Another year older!


I'm here to share a card I made for my lovely father-in-law.  I'm hiding inside again today as it's started snowing again.  I'm bored of being cold.

I decided I needed a treat and bought some new stamps in the Lili of the Valley Sale (actually mostly the ones I chose weren't in the sale - but we'll just ignore that fact!!)

I used the Papermania Happy Days stack (I think) and dug out some random string/twine I've had in my ribbon box for ever

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

Dilly Beans - Metal Accents
Fairy Tale Challenge - My New Stamp
Sassy Studio Designs - How Charming
Lili's Little Fairies - Anything Goes
Shopping our Stash - Use your oldest ribbon (ok I've used string - but it's almost the same - isn't?)
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Willow Sketchie - Happy Birthday 
Crafty Calendar - What's New?

Hope you all have a great weekend - I've got a fun one planned: ghost hunting on Saturday and an applique class on Sunday!

This is fabulous Julie. I love that cute image and great papers and layout. What better way to cheer yourself up than to buy LOTV stamps! On that note, thank you for taking part in the Lili's Little Fairies challenge this week.
I hope you have a fab weekend, it sounds like fun
Hugs Sue
