Happy birthday to you!

This week's Little Extra at Daring Cardmakers is

Paper or Clocks
Another Midweek challenge based on the traditional and modern gift lists for Wedding AnniversariesThis time we've chosen the 3rd Anniversary, so you have the choice ofPaper or Clocks to inspire your card making this week - which is nice and easy don't you think?Remember, your card doesn't have to be an anniversary card, it can be for any occasion, we're just using the themes for inspiration purposes!

It's a friend's birthday tomorrow and she is off to Malaga for a week (lucky so and so :)) so I took her birthday card and pressie round today. She opened her pressie (but not her card) and was really chuffed. I made her a pink Swarovski phone charm as she loves all things pink, hence the card! Bodice is Stampendous, patterned paper is Pink Petticoat and ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis feathers and flowers are from my stash. Sentiment was generated on the pc and made to look like a clock with the hands being cut from the top half of the Eiffel Tower die by Quickutz.

I may be awol for a few days as I'm looking after the salon while Caron is sunning herself in Spain. She stocks my cards and jewellery so it's the least I could do and I'm about to sort some of my work to take with me. I also want to take some stamped images to colour so I have some in reserve.

Right, got to go now as I have to go and spend some money on beads (purely in the line of business you understand! LOL)

Back soon, take care and thanks for looking.
