Happy Birthday Son

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and had a good weekend.  My sister, brother in law and nephews were down visiting this weekend.  Had a lovely time catching up but ate and drank far too much.  My new job is going well.  I am starting to feel more comfortable with the work and getting used to full time working again.   Still got to get myself organised on the crafting front though.  Don't seem to have had a lot of time the last couple of weeks to get in my crafty room very much.

Today I thought I would share a card that I was asked to make a few weeks ago.


The Happy Birthday is a stamp from Papermania.  I coloured it using promarkers and then added some stickles to the polka dots.  I also added some stickles around the square image for added sparkle.  The backing paper is from a K & Company paper pad that I have had for a couple of years.  I used a signature die for the star burst and used the stars that came out of the die cut as embellishments.  A sentiment finished the card.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really do appreciate all your comments.
