Birdhouse Birthday

Just a quick post as I am currently getting ready to go and see my rock legend 'Meat Loaf''.  This is his final tour and I am so excited to be going.  I have seen him five times already but he never fails to disappoint.  And if that wasn't enough excitement for one weekend I am going to Ally Pally with my Mum tomorrow.  Eeek (little squeal of excitement).

The card that I am sharing today was made a few weeks ago for my Mum's birthday.  She also makes cards so it can be quite difficulty coming up with something for her.


I used a card blank from Craftwork cards.  I covered it with some paper from my stash and then used some candi for the edges.  I used an embossing tool to crush each piece of candi and then added a blob of stickles to each centre.  The flowers were cut using one of my spellbinders dies.  I used a combination of glitter card, pink and green card.  A happy birthday sentiment, some punched butterflies and liquid pearls completed the card.
Mum loved it and I breathed a sigh of relief.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to hearing what you think.  I will update you on Sunday about Meat Loaf and Ally Pally.
