A 'Getting Older' Birthday!

Good morning all and hope that your week is going well.  Still no sign of any warmer weather for us and I've a feeling that we'll still be wrapped up over Easter too!  Feeling a bit tired this morning - had an early 'unscheduled' start - Poppy the Cat decided that she'd get off our bed and come downstairs and wake Tilly the Dog up - at 5.30am!  So then Tilly decided she'd wake me up to tell me that Poppy had woken her up. So I had to come down, shuffling along in pyjamas and only one eye half open (so glamorous!) to let the dog out and stand at the back door watching the odd snowflake, then make the cat go back upstairs so that I could then crawl back into bed (whilst muttering and grumbling). But by then I was awake and it takes a while to drift back off to sleep - then the alarm goes at 6.45! Don't you just love pets......sigh.

Anyway, a quick card to share with you today.  One of our friends had a 'significant' birthday last week so I had to make a suitable card


I used one of the fantastic Bugaboo images (great for humorous cards!) and coloured the image with promarkers and flexmarkers


The fabulous embossed red coredinations card is from a gorgeous Core Impressions pad that I won in some blog candy from the lovely Eileen and then some stripy paper that was a freebie with a mag.  The sentiment is also from Bugaboo.  Then I simply added some bakers twine and black dew drops from Polkadoodles and decorated the inside to match

Quite a simple card really, but I think he liked it! 
Back soon,

  7. Sounds like my type of nights sleep to Kim. Only mine is the boys waking me. Lol.
    Ronnie has decided that as soon as he sees a little bit of light shine under his curtains, it's time for mummy to get up. (I'm dreading the summer days, god knows what time he will get me up then lol)

    Your card is fab as always. I love these bugaboo images
    Hope you have a better night tonight
    Hugs Kelly
