Bringing Bright Birthday Wishes

Evening Folks,
I am still on my Christmas break from work at the moment.  Christmas was lovely, spending time with family but I have been enjoying a quiet couple of days.  Of course, I have spent a bit of time in my crafty room.

My Mum got me a lovely paper pad from First Edition called Blank Canvas.  It has some lovely bright papers in it so I decided to make a card using the papers.  This card is quite bright and I have used a colour that I don't use a great deal - orange.  The card will probably be for my daughters to give my Sister for her birthday on January 9th.

The stamped image is from Lily of the Valley which I coloured with promarkers.  I added some glamour dust to her little skirt for added sparkle.  The lovely papers were matted onto coredinations cardstock and I distressed all the edges.  I also inked all the edges with some distress ink.  The flowers were made using a Tim Holtz die that I have.  The centres of the flowers are some pearl brads that I have had forever.

Thanks for popping by.  Can I say welcome to my new followers.  I am honoured that you want to follow me and hope that you like what you see.  Thank you to everyone for all the lovely comments that you leave me.  I do enjoy reading each and every one.  See you again soon.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
