Morning all.  How are you today?  Tis a tad on the damp and chilly side here today and the ol' bones are feeling it a bit.  A great excuse to snuggle up in the craft room with some colouring.

Before I do that I thought I would share a birthday card with you.  I made this for a very special friend that I made through blogland.

So I have started with an 8x8 card base
Image is CC Designs Roberto's Rascals - Nancy Shopping
She is coloured in part with Polychromos and in part with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
the image plate was cut with a Spellbinders die
The papers are all LOTV/Nitwits Country Meadow
Sentiment is Whimsy
Corners are SCACD
Pearls are from stash

The inside (which I forgot to photograph) says
"The more candles, the bigger the wish"

Have a super weekend everyone

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Your girlie is gorgeous and I love how you've coloured her hair and all the soft colours. There is even lots of pink and gorgeous LOTV papers, need I say more really!!

She's gorgeous, and will be cherished. Thank you, you lovely lovely lady.
