Happy Birthday




Miserable day here we woke up to snow and hail stones, although it's not lying for long , we've had heavy showers at times and it is really cold, have both wood stoves on at the moment, and the house is lovely and cosy.

Image from House Mouse, teamed with papers from Nitwit Collections and a sentiment from Tattered Lace, I used a Sizzix die to cut lots of tiny flowers to add dimension.

Fabulous card design - the image is so cute and I love all those tiny flowers - they really do give it dimension. Your post reminds me of when we lived in Balerno, outside Edinburgh, almost 30 years ago. Now we live in France and the weather is just SO different...although I do miss Scotland. Thank you for joining us at Fab'n Funky.
