Happy Birthday to Me :)

Hooray!  Today is my birthday & I'm soo glad I booked the day off work (especially as it is v stressful there at the moment).  Unfortunately hubby couldn't get the day off as his work is too short-staffed.  I had the perfect start to the day with my little grandchildren Ryan & Abigail singing Happy Birthday & talking to them via the web-cam :)  As you can imagine I got some crafty goodies so I'm going to spend the day playing with them, in between eating birthday cake & Thorntons choccies ;)  

Anyway onto the card. This is the first time I've made a double pocket card & I really enjoyed making it.  The papers are from Brenda Pinnock (& so are the sticker, corners & chipboard letters).  I used Greeting Farm stamps coloured in with ProMarkers & Frosted Lace (I think) Stickles.  I finshed off with eyelets, gold cord stuff & a gem.  

Ooh nearly forgot HERE are the instructions if you want to have a go :)

The challenges are:
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - Childrens Christmas
Sparkle - Christmas Tree
Aly's - Sparkle & Glitter
Our Creative Corner - Fun with Folds
Everybody-Art - Other Cardform
Alphabet - T is for Trees
