Have a Magical Birthday

Good Sunny Afternoon Everyone - I hope you are all enjoying the sun today.  I sat outside for a little bit with my cat Suki and she was really enjoying the warmth and having a little sniff around.  She doesn't go out much anymore because she is an old girl, so it was nice to see her enjoying herself.  I just hope this weather is like this for my Son's half term the week after next.

Here is a card I want to share....

I was encouraged to do this card when I stumbled across a blog called Sketch n Stash and this week they had this sketch....


I hadn't followed a sketch for some time, so I enjoyed doing this one.  It's quite straightforward to follow.

I have used LOTV fairy and sentiment stamps which I coloured in with pro-markers.  The papers are My Mind's Eye (free from a magazine).  The flowers, gems, lace, ribbon and card are all from my stash.
