Happy New Year

Woohooo.... Firstly, a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!!!   Sadly, the owners of the PTT Challenge Blog where I was invited to serve on their DT have decided, for personal reasons, to discontinue the challenge blog for now.  I was really looking forward to this new post and had already worked through a few of the challenges, that is why you are seeing so many Birthday Cards... Oh well, I am sure there will be other DT posts coming up soon, so I'll just keep my eyes and ears open...

I purchased this beautiful Birthday Stamp from my stamping friend, Debbie Harris.  I fell in love with it when I saw it and decided just to use my Chalk to give it a bit of colour.  The papers are from MME.  Pearls and ribbon from my stash and the white flower was a gift from another friend, Amelia.  I just love the way this card came out and will keep it for myself as part of my birthday card supply for the year.


Here's another side view to give you a peek of the inside of the card...

And finally, here's the inside of the card...


I made the flowers myself, using various sized flower punches and of course the gorgeous border punch too.

Thanks for popping around to pay me a visit, I so enjoy reading your comments.  Wishing you a super day with your loved ones... hugs Sharon
