Happy Birthday

Good morning to you all I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.  For those of you in the UK I hope you stay safe in St Jude's Storm.  It is lashing it down here at the moment but I don't think here in the Northwest we will be too badly affected by the winds.

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexi's Creations and we would like to see your project to celebrate a Birthday.  You have almost two weeks to enter.  I thought I would have a play with some of my Spellbinders dies:

I used a combination of Spellbinders Adorning Squares and Exquisite Circles - first time outing for both.  The background was cut with SB Botanical Swirls (only the second time I had used it). For the card itself I used Go Kreate XL Frame Frilly #1.  The sentiment is Craftwork cards and the gems and ribbons from my stash.  Here is another view:

Please go over to Lexi's Creations to see what the rest of the DT have done.  Our sponsor this week is Fairy Dust Craft with a voucher for the lucky winner.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

The Squirrel and The Fox - Pink
Crafty Hands - Anything Goes
Moving Along With The Times - Shape Up
Creative Challenges - Anything Goes
Card and Scrap - Anniversaries
Bunny Zoe - Ribbon
Craft-Dee Bowz - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for looking today and I really appreciate it when you take the time out to leave a comment I know how time consuming it is.  Take care xx
