Apologies for the awful pun... it was the best I could come up with!

I'm sure you'll be glad to see a change today from the quick Christmas cards - I thought I'd get one of my birthday orders done instead.

One of my friends gives me a list of all the birthday cards she needs for each month, with a little note beside each name telling me something about them to help me along... this one said 'likes vampires' lol :o)

Items Used
Cream scalloped card blank - Craftwork Cards
Digi stamp - Vamp Me - Tiddly Inks
Colouring - copics (hair & skin) & promarkers (purple)
Papers - Prima Romance Novel - MCH
Flower - Prima Silentium Tea Thyme - MCH
Memory Box Floral Vine die - MCH
MFT dienamics corner die
Spellbinders circle & oval dies
Ribbon - Dovecraft Garden Party ribbon pack - MCH

Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White - MCH

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Fab n Funky - number 3 or 3 of something (gems)
Forever Night - purple/ anything goes

I'm off for a little catch up with some of your blogs now, as I've hardly had any blogging time this week... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Hi Lisa, oh wow love this one!!! Your colour choices are just amazing!!

Getting on well with the Copics I see - the hair is fab. I'm seriously considering getting some Copics for Christmas - just some pinks to complement the Pros, is it a slippery slope????
