A Special Birthday For A Special Friend

A few weeks back it was Deb's 50th birthday, & so I made her a card and sent her my best wishes along with it.  Clearly I couldn't blog my card at the time, but I can now & here it is!





The paper is Andrea Jayne, Hot Diggity Dog again and the stamp, Funstamps, Painted Lady on Musk Mallow.  The butterfly is Pippa by Memory Box & the border, MS Doily.  All colouring done by Promarkers.

Challenges;
Crafting For All Seasons - Think Pink
Simon Says Stamp - Flower Power
As You Like It - 2 Favourite colours - Pink & Brown - specifically kraft brown!  Love both these as pink makes super girly cards & kraft goes with just about anything! A great combo in my eye!
Stampavie & More - Kraft
ALBC - Kraft It
By The Cute & Girly - Flowers
One Crazy Stamper - Flowers
Milk Coffee Challenge - Shabby Chic/Vintage
Art Impressions - Show Your Bow

Finally, I just want to say a huge thank you to Debs for the lovely candy prize she sent me to celebrate her birthday... just look!



Thank you so much Debs, you have been exceptionally generous to me, Claire & Sam!
