Good morning gorgeous girlies from a very confused Scotland!!! When I woke this morning it was raining and since then we've had sun and snow!!!!!! At the moment I can see sun and blue skies through the rain speckled window and I am hoping it will stop at that now lol

So this week is week 24 over at Just Christmas and Birthday Cards and this week the sketch is by Tanja, it is a lovely sketch and I can see lots of different cards coming up with it :o)

My birthday card this week is made with a cute wee birdie stamp I bouhgt at the SECC (imaginisce I think.......but don't quote me) the paper is from stash and the pink card is a scrap from the scrap box, the flowers are from stash with a sequin flower on top, all put together with wee flower eyelets.

The Christmas card is made with some paper I found in the Christmas box (no idea where its from tho) the HOHOHO ribbon was from tesco, the little xmas trees are also from tesco, they are little red sequin trees. some of the trees on the paper have stickles on the baubles. the stitched bauble is by stitchingcards stitched with basic cross stitch thread from my previous obsession lol
I hope you will come and join us over at JCBC we would love to see you :0) and the prize this week is a lovely Magnolia stamp....................I want it!!!!

Hi Amanda,

I just love this little bird - I was at SECC also, but did not see this one!!

I know what you mean about the weather it has been absolutely freezing in Inverness today and was even worse yesterday - roll on summer!!!

Have a great evening
