Happy Birthday

Well Hello to Everyone

How has your week been?  What a wonderful sunny start and then it started to rain just in time for the weekend too - typical huh!


It's Saturday again already which means it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss and this week the challenge is Happy Birthday which should be easy peasy.

We have two generous sponsors this week - The Ribbon Girl and Whoopsi Daisy so you have even more chances to win.  So make sure you get your entries in over at the Totally Gorjuss blog and whilst you are there just check out the wonderful creations our lovely DT girls have made for you.

So, on with my card:


I love this image, I just fell in love with her cute cheeky smile - gorgeous isn't she!

The recipe for the card is:
