Happy Birthday

Good morning and I am a day late with this post (red face).  Firstly a big Happy Birthday to A Little Bit Crafty - we were one year old yesterday wow where has that year gone??? We have a new challenge and the theme this month is:


So anything with birds or bees (or both) on them. Here is my card:

The image is a Penny Black stamp and the sentiment LOTV.  I have coloured it with Copics and added some Glamour Dust for a bit of sparkle.  Papers are First Edition Hide Away.  I used my new  Jus Cutz Hexagon Large dies I got from the NEC for the card shape.  The Daisy Bouquet die is by Joanna Sheen from the NEC too.  I cut out one of the bees from the set and used it as an embellishment.  The honeycomb embossing folder is a Tim Holtz one.  Here is another view:

We have some wonderful sponsors this month:

I am off on the train to Manchester today with a friend for a spot of shopping, champagne and lunch.  Thank you for coming to see me I really appreciate your visits and any comments you may leave. Take care xx
