Birthday wishes

Hi everyone, thank you for the comments left on my blog posts.  I can't believe it's  nearly a week since I blogged (shame on me!), but I have been busy with DT work.  Talking of which - I applied for two DT posts and I'm just so over the moon to be able to tell you that I was accepted for both.  Thank you so much to Lindsay at
and also
Elaine Rayworth at
The Just for Fun challenges will begin on 1st August.
Thank you both for having such faith in me!

Onto a card I made for no-one in particular, just thought I would have a play as it's a new stamp I bought recently.

One day I  will learn NOT to colour in the image before choosing a background - it took me longer to find papers to match than it did colouring in the image!

The embossing folder I used is 'Interlocking circles' chosen by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.  The swirls are 'Fanciful Flourish' from Cheery Lynn Designs and the image is 'Water Lily' from Penny Black.  The 'ripples' behind the water lilly is from Hobby Art and the sentiment is from Dufex, bought many moons ago!

Take care ..................... till next time
