Dream Valley Challenge 77 - BIG birthdays!


Well, dare I say it? It seems that Spring may have arrived! Yay! :-) It has put me in a lovely mood so the cards been making over the last few days all seem to be pretty, cheerful, pastel colours. The new challenge at Dream Valley is all about

BIG Birthdays!

I've gone a bit 'pink' with this card..... Once I started I couldn't stop so everything ended up pink - except the bear :-) There are a few BIG birthdays coming up in my family this year, but of them all, the 90th birthday of my Father-in-law's mom is probably the biggest. Now you don't get to celebrate birthdays that big very often, do you? :-)

I haven't used this Fizzy Moon image for quite a while but I really do like it. He's so cute! The sentiment is one from LOTV. I was gutted though. It's a really sticky one and it was stuck fast to the acetate sheet it was on and as I was peeling it off it got two little tears in it :-( It took ages to position it onto my block so I could stamp it without the tears being visible. I've never had that happen to one of my stamps before and I was quite upset about it! Must be more careful in future!

A close up of the image showing glitter I added.... Can you see the 3D gloss on his nose too???

Right, I suppose. It's about time I tidied my kitchen - it always looks like a bombsite at the weekend.  But with the nice weather I can send the boys out in the garden to play so I can sort it out in peace :-)

Don't forget to have a look at the other BIG birthday inspiration from the Dream Valley DT!

Hope you have a fab weekend.

Love 'n' hugs,
