loving wishes

I needed to make a birthday card and it was such a welcome break from making Christmas stuff!

The challenges:

'Anything goes': Creative Card Crew.

'Free for all': C.R.A.F.T. Challenge.

'Use favourite colouring medium & colour': If the Shoe Fits.

Papers: Bo Bunny ~ Alissa Collection. I love these yummy pink & turquoise colours.

Flowers: Bo Bunny.

Punch: Ek Success ~ Edger Punch.

The image and sentiment are from the new Magnolia ~ Winter kit so I don't yet know her name, but isn't she just the cutest? I'm sure I will never tire of these darling Tilda's.

Well of course today it snowed and we were transformed into a winter wonderland. Here is a section of my garden.

I noticed the bird feeders were looking a bit empty but they are now filled with yummy goodness (for birds!). These guys & gals need all the help they can get in this weather, so don't forget to leave out your scraps and keep the feeders topped up.

Apologies for not visiting your blogs in the last week or so, my life has not been my own lately in this 'silly season' but I will be catching up as soon as I can.

Thank you for looking.

A very pretty card and your garden looks lovely too. The birds are getting through the food extra fast since it turned really cold. Hope not too many of them lose the battle with the cold.
