A Little Birdie Told Me...



We're on holiday from work this week & are doing lots of sorting in the house  but we are making time for a bit of fun too though - today we played Foot Golf with our youngest son Stuart which was definitely fun! (It is what it says it is - you have a football & kick it into the (big) hole).  Then we went for a meal out & watched a movie at home after :o)

You get the idea

I've found a little time to blog this card I made for a close friends birthday recently.  I used an image that I've had for ages from Pink Cat Studio (& is one that I love using for birthdays) which I coloured with ProMarkers.  I used a punched cupcake border & die cut cupcake. I finished off with a doily, some pearls & stamped greeting.
   
The challenges:
Crafty Time - Punches or Dies
Cute Card Thursday - We Love Cake
House of Cards - Food &/or Colour Inspiration
Little Red Wagon - Birthday
Simon Says - Furry Friends (some DT members used birds so I guess its okay :o)


I hope you're having a great week xx
