Looking gorgeous!

Hello all, Friday again already?  But I am sooo ready for the weekend! Just one more week of this half term left to go and then a week off - and I'm getting excited as I'm leaving the boys here at home to cope and going to spend a few days with my gorgeous daughter in Sussex. I'm hoping we can get some nice girly time together - I've missed that so much since she moved last summer!

Anyway, as it's Friday, it's time for a new challenge over at CraftyCatz.  We had some really fabulous entries last week in the stitching challenge so don't forget to see who was the winner and the top 3.  This week our lovely Janette is hosting the challenge and it's a nice easy one - 'Birthdays'. So we'd like to see your gorgeous birthday creations. Our sponsor this week is Rick St Dennis and I've used one of his digi stamps for my card (and no, it's not me first thing in a morning - even if it does bear a spooky similarity....)

I've coloured the image with promarkers and Graphit pens

The backing papers are from First Edition, with a computer-printed sentiment, and I've used a Sizzix die to make the flower.
Hope you like it!
Do have a look at the fantastic inspiration from the DT over at Crafty Catz HERE (they really are a talented bunch!) - and then join in with your birthday creation.
Back soon,
