Birthday Girl

Afternoon all, how are you?  I am really sorry that I've not been around much over the past week or so, I don't know what's happened, time is just getting away from me.  

Last weekend was a bit of a crafty washout so I was determined that this weekend was going to be better ... best laid plans of mice and squirrels .... mojo has gone walkies.  I am blaming that on a certain lady who has a big birthday soon and there has been a certain amount of pressure to get the card right for her, and I have procrastinated, and hmmmmmd and errrrrrrd a lot, but today I forced myself to sit down and get on with it!

And unusually for me I have found a few challenges that it will fit with so that's a bonus!

This is an 8x8 card which was a bit of a bugger to photograph so sorry that the pictures are not as good as they ought to be

Papers - Nitwits/LOTV Bonnets and Bowties

Distress Ink (ReInkers)
Hair - Scattered Straw, Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain

Hugs, Sxx
