Happy Birthday to me!

Yep it's my birthday today... thank you to my lovely bloggy friends who've sent me a card - mwah!  I'm an ancient 35 years old and have the white hairs to prove it lol... and to make it worse hubby hasn't even turned 30 yet, although he will be in July.  Tomorrow I'll be ordering my cricut expression, that I'm buying with my Christmas and birthday money - can't wait!  Hope I can figure it out, I'm a bit rubbish with anything technical.

Here's a quick card for today - I can't remember where I got this bird image from but it's great for quick ones.  I've embossed some coredinations card with 2 different embossing folders and then sanded it back.  Added some ribbon and a Craftwork Cards sentiment and that's it - simples :o)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:


  1. Hi Lisa. What a fab fun card. Love the colours and the image, so cute.
    I wish you a very Happy Birthday sweetie, have a great day.
    Lots of love, Sandra xx

  2. Happy Birthday Lisa, hope you have a wonderful day and get spoilt rotten, you sooo deserve to be. Ooh! bet you're so excited to be getting a cricut, and it won't take you long to get the hang of it. Can't wait to see your fab creations with it. Love your cute birdie card too. :o)
