A Birthday Card ............

Hi everyone, well I had a lovely relaxing day making cards yesterday so I have more cards to show you than normal this week!   I made this card for my friend who came round last night and I so enjoyed making making it.  I got to play with my new Memory Box dies and I got this lovely Whiff of Joy stamp out that I have not used for ages and I was quite pleased with how this card turned out.  I think it was nice to have some new dies to play with and not just put paper flowers on my card.

It is a very wet Sunday here in Norfolk but at least there is no more snow yet!  I'm hoping that it  doesn't come as I have 100 mile round trip to do to Norwich on Tuesday and I can't cope with driving that far in the snow!

The only problem with crafting for most of yesterday is that I now have a very large pile of irnoning and house work to do so I better get on with it!

I must give credit to Lisa from Wishcraft blog for using the dies in this way,  so thank you for the wonderful inspiration Lisa. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Natalie and Amy - Something Old Something New (New dies/Old Stamp)
Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
Lets Create Challenges - Happy Birthday

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs Lynsey x

Materials Used:

Hiya Lynsey.
What a great card. Love this image. My friend has this and gave me a stamped image once (I know that's naughty!) and she is just so sweet.
I love the "Dance" paper and the paper with the Eifle Tower on (Paris is one of my favourite places ever!)
I have also just noticed your "Cake" invites, they are gorgeous. Have a nice day.
Oh I am ironing in a mo too, that's our punishment for Crafting so much!

Hi Lynsey, Gorgeous card and love your colouring and design. I have just finished painting all our door frames, as we had new interior doors fitted. I have a husband who doesn't do DIY, so it all falls to me! Now I won't feel any guilt crafting for the rest of the dsy!! Hugs, Carol S.xx
