Happy Birthday

It seems that I haven't entered a challenge for ages and when I saw the super simple sketch at  CAS Colours and Sketches I simply had to have a go!
I've been having an extreme problem with lack of mojo of late and I think this is down to various factors. 
  • My time  is filled with vacations and looking after grandchildren
  • My craft room is so crammed with stuff that I can hardly move and I NEED to get rid of loads
  • My eyesight is giving me problems as I have cataracts and am hopefully awaiting surgery
  • I have been having IT techy problems and had to buy a new printer among other things
I think that's enough to be going on with!
Anyway here is a simple card, simple stamping, single image and a few tiny gems.
I hope you like it!


  1. Wonderful card! I love the shimmer on the flower! Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!

    for a friend is something that is really really important for all of us and often tend to confuse us all along.
