Happy Birthday


Trust me to find new Saturated Canary just before Christmas after all my cards are done cos I suppose she is really singing carols. But I love this image so I've decided she is actually singing Happy Birthday now do think I convince the challenge on Saturated Canary Challenge that is a song so I can enter in their challenge.
The papers are Teresa Collins another pack of papers which were worth the money since I've only a few left. Flowers are Ek Success with a snowflake punch for the large flower centre and an stamen punch I've had for ages for the little ones.
The corners are Whimsy dies possibly the nearest to the quickutz die I love so much not as nice but a pretty close second and I love that a pearl fits in the hole in the corner.
For a bit of experiment I used a music stamp behind the image but the jury is still out on that one but I don't hate it.
Well yesterday my Sister held a tea party for some crafty friends it was lovely how we chatted about lots of other things than craft and I think everyone had a great time of course dozey drawers forgot to use the camera.
My secret project now had 15 weeks to go and I've now 8 squares to cross stitch, I think this is the reason I'm finding hard to make cards or even colouring.  I obsess to get it finish but it takes a good week and a bit to do each square and hardly any other craft being done in between. There's also the possibility it might come early and I have less weeks than I think!

  49. Brilliant card, love the colours and the layers on her outfit.
    Now there's a funny thing, my Hubby has just seen a programme given the top ten songs that have made the most money and the number 1 song was Happy Birthday, not by Stevie Wonder but the song everyone sings when it is someones birthday, so you can tell them that it is a song and the song that has made the most bucks.
