Birthday Wishes

Hello All! Sunday afternoon, snuggled up under the blanket again, the rain is tipping down outside! We have broken the chocolates out - the diet starts tomorrow!

The baby shower yesterday was lots of fun, and Graham's whoopie pies went down a treat, so all in all a good afternoon!

My card today is for one of the teachers at school, who is absolutely lovely and always makes time to stop by and have a chat to us in the office! I received some new stamps on Friday that I had ordered at the beginning of October from Verve Stamps in the United States, and have been itching to use them! The stamp I have used is actually a freebie to say thanks for ordering!! If you have never heard of them, pop over and have a look around - fab stamps, lots of variety, and really reasonably priced! Anyway, this is what I did...





What I have used:
Sentiment - Verve Stamps
Flowers - Marianne Creatables
Leaves - Joy Crafts and Magnolia DooHickeys
Oval frame - Spellbinder Floral Ovals
Lace - Hobby House
Pearls - Hobby House
Papers - Kaisercraft
Memo pin - Tim Holtz

I would like to enter the following challenges please:
Alphabet Challenge - R for Roses
Happy Campers - Show us your flowers
Crafting for all seasons - Pins and lace
Divas by design - 3 or more layers
Flourishes - Pearls and Lace

Thank you for stopping by, and hopefully see you again tomorrow!

Love and light
Claire xx
