Female Birthdays @ TPC

Hello again, I'm getting used to this 2 days on a row thing now lol though I have cheated a bit here as the card I'm about to show you was made before Christmas and not blogged and it was perfect for the new challenge this week at


the lovely Cathy KraftyKoolKat chose the theme

Female Birthday

I'm using this time to try and get ahead with my DT work, I must admit it was nice having one already done!!
I made this for my blogging buddy (Kerry obviously) for her 50th (obvious again!) not sure why it didn't get blogged at the time. I love this Kenny K image and the papers are Maja Designs, can't remember which pad sorry. My usual over the top floral display and a super doo hickey swirl die cut.

Head over to the main challenge blog for some super gorgeous inspiration from my teammies and all the details of the challenge including the prize on offer from this weeks sponsor

That's all from me today, thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges

Sister Act - anything Goes
Kenny K - Anything Goes/gems twist
Whoopsidaisy - Lots of Flowers
Creative Moments - Pearls and Swirls
Fussy and Fancy - Birthday
Challenges and Candies - Flowers

Morning Laurie.. This card looks fabulous and the floral display is certainly not 'over the top' - I think it looks gorgeous - I'm never successful with flowers and envy people like you who can pull this off! The images is so perfect for a BIG 0 card too.. kinda defiant!! Beautiful colouring and stunning colour choice complete a perfect card!

Hope you're feeling lots better now.. and will be back to 100% soon!

Have a good weekend..

Hi Laurie, oooh fabulous card - love the image and your colours. The flowers are perfect and not over the top at all!!!

Gorgeous card in the post below as well and lucky you to be going to off on hols!

And I'd love to see the building pics - makes me feel less alone for posting mine!! I could also be posting more now - but it's only hubby having the garages extended to create a 'playroom' (model railway room) for himself! Yawn, boring!! Will be posting more tho when the kitchen and bathroom are doing!!!
