hello there.......

Hi there, I found this card I created ages ago saved on draft and never posted - in fact I found I do have a few of these draft cards so my aim is to get them up on my blog rather then leave them sitting there in limbo....
The image is a Tiddly Inks Stamp, coloured with Copics and a  Technique Tuesday Word Stamp

birthday surprise.....

Todays card is all about celebrating a very special birthday for a really Gorgeous lady and that person is Nonni from Korttikarkuri.
Happy Birthday Nonni, Wishing you an Amazing Birthday and a Wonderful Year ahead...
Sandie from London Days is kindly hosting the linky party.
I used my favourite stamp from STAMPlorations...
 SKETCHED CUPCAKE and the sentiment is from  SIMPLE GIFT

Now,... Nonni most recently got a new little puppy....  So we thought if would be a nice idea to share our pets with her....
This is "Miss Bella".. my adorable little dog... Bella is 5 years old- a Maltese Cross and she is my crafting buddy.. She has the most beautiful, lovable, placid nature and when anyone comes to visit she will always greet them with a toy to share... She is such a big part of my family and is so very much loved by us all.....

Check out the  STAMPlorations blog to see the Birthday cards for NONNI from the other DT girls.
