Not a Christmas Card!!


I can't believe what a beautiful sunny day it has been today. I have been moaning about trying to get a good photo when it has been so dismal some days this week and today it was hard to get a photo cos it is so sunny. You just can't win.
Just for a change I have a Birthday card to post. A friend asked me to make this for her 3 year old niece. Having looked through some of my work she wanted this image with balloons, so here we are, oh and it had to be pink. The image is a Gorjuss girl from Sugar Nellie, coloured with PMs and layered onto pink glitter card. I cut up part of a Sizzix swirl for the string and the balloons are also Sizzix. Sentiment is from the PC, papers are Papermania Sweet Nothings. I added some sparkly stars and really, really sparkly flowers. All little girls love pink sparkle don't they. The card is for 3 challenges, sparkle at La La Land and babies and children's cards at Creative Card Crew and a new one I've just found Alphabet Challenge B is for, which in my case is balloons.
Hope the sun is shining where you are and you all have a good weekend. The clocks go back in the UK on Sunday morning so that's another hour we get to craft on Sunday.

Sorry I have not visited for a week, first the birth of my neice and then I came down with stupid sinusitus and now are on a strong dose of anti biotics to try and shift it, so sorry for a flying visit.

hugs Vicky x
