Celebrate

Hello dear friends. Thank you for dropping in today. I  appreciate your visit and would be really happy were you to leave a comment, then I could repay the favour and call in on you.

Well fortunately yesterday was a much warmer day to be without electricity for the entire day. Although it didn't go off until after 8:30 and also came back  slightly earlier than they said too which was a relief. However, I had just made a pot of tea using a little camping stove and was actually pouring the water into the pot when on it came back on. Talk about Sod's Law!

My Card
Click on image  to enlarge picture

The bird cage and birds were die cuts that I bought some time ago, and I think are from Anna-Marie dies. I popped the birds through my GC using Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder to give a bit of definition. The blue daisies were from a pack of diecuts of various sizes that I bought some time ago when I did a wedding album for my sister. The leaves are from a Marianne Designs  Flower and Leaves die set. The ribbon and pearls are all from my stash. It's a simple card but looks quite pretty and I thought it would  be hand to have in stock for an anniversary card.

Well I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend,

Love and hugs from Christine xx
