Die Cut Happy Birthday

Another non Christmas card, I do make occasional ones and when I do I love them and this is no exception.  I love the colours and the delicateness of the die cuts.

The base of the card is an 8x8 Craftwork Cards blank,  matted and layered with their lovely decorative papers from a pack called Cottontail and some matching pearlescent card.

And now for the list of die cuts,  Spellbinders Tear Drop Circles, Standard Circles Large and Rose Creations, Memory Box La Rue Flourish, Fauntleroy Crest, Tilth Floral and Die-namics Fancy Flourish. I had a ball making this card and getting to use all my new dies.

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and the dots are Card Candi to match the papers.

I'm off to start my day, first, I have to feed next door's cats, they are away sunning themselves in Portugal.  Then I need to go to B&Q and get a new barbie and some nice sea bream out of the fish shop to go on it.  Some beer for Alex to drink while he's cooking tonight and some salad and good bread to round off the fish.  This will be our first barbie of the year, and I'm really looking forward to it.  The weather here has changed dramatically in the last couple of days, we've gone from barely making it to 7 degrees to having 24 dergress today.  Nice, I love the heat, as long as I have somewhere cool to escape to for a cool down when it gets too warm.  Somewhere in there I have to fit in some washing and ironing, not my favourite jobs.

Hope you have a great day.  Hugz, Janice
