The Birthday Celebrations Begin.....

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.  
I had the most wonderful surprise last night thanks to my two wonderful daughters and hubby.  They presented me with an envelope last night and when I opened it there was a ticket inside to see The Lion King at The Lyceum Theatre in London.  I have wanted to see this show for the longest time so they are taking me on Sunday as a treat for my 50th birthday.  I feel very blessed and loved to have such a wonderful family.  Thanks guys, you are the best.

Now onto my card share for tonight.  I have quite a few cards stacked up on my computer to show you so just decided to go with the first one in the folder.

This was made using the Femme Fatale CD from Kraftyhands.  This is a gorgeous CD with some beautiful images and papers.  Everything on the card is from the CD apart from the metal corners, ribbon and punched butterflies.  I did add some stickles around the image for a bit of sparkle.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.

Don't forget to check out my birthday blog candy (see post above).  All you need to do is be a follower, post a pic on your sidebar and leave a comment.
