bling it on

well today i am showing a birthday card for my mum from the boys ~they chose the stamp ~which was great as it is one of my new ones , just added ez!!
used the fab sketch over on just xmas and birthday cards and also followed the challenge on magnolia down under~which is "bling it" ~need no help with adding bling do i??? although the photo doesn`t show it i have added glitter to all the wings of the butterflies in the background paper. ~(oh and the other butterflies, wording, flowers .. well anything i could!!) ~oh nearly forgot ~over on cute cards the theme this week is "family affair" ~make a card for a member of your family ~ all links are on my side bar


used this wonderful edwin fron magnolia stamps and butterflies, nestabilities pinking circles, quickutz corners, ribbon, gems and wording from my stash.

just when i thought i was feeling better , i was up all night with lewis with a fever!! he never seems to be well ~what am i to do?? he is happy , plenty of calpol and playing on the nintendo wii ~may give me chance now to blog hop!!( before he wants more hugs! byeeeeeeeeee for now xx
