Mothers Day Weekend A Birthday Card & some challenges

Hello Everyone,

Another quiet week in the craft room not many actual cards finished but I have been practising colouring, and have a few images that I am fairly happy with :-) that will hopefully make it onto finished cards one day!

I am trying hard to work through some of the hundreds of 6x6 papers I have and make use of all my old stamps, I am not doing to bad although I have bought a few new stamps, I have only purchased one paper pad since December, however I slipped again this week and purchased my very first Digi stamps, I am really looking forward to playing with them, I haven’t had chance yet as my Son is home from uni for the weekend J so I have had to pack the craft stuff away! I don’t mind it is wonderful having both my children at home. ‘Enough Waffling’!!!

Onto Today’s card, it is another pink and girly one using an older Tilda stamp and a 6x6 papermania pad call Scrumptious. Used a peeloff for the sentiment ( I am going to ‘have’ to invest in some sentiment stamps soon! )

I would like to enter this card into the following 8 challenges:

Aud Sentiments Challenge # 50 = Song Title – “Happy Birthday”

The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge # 36 = Pink & Girly
