Happy Birthday Julie!!

Hi there everyone

If my scheduling has worked you should be seeing a card with a yummy cake on it!  

I made this card for Julie over at the Julie's Open Window.  It's a very special birthday for her today, so Happy Birthday Julie!!! 

I hope you have a wonderful day, get lots of time to craft and get a cake as big as this one!!

I have known Julie since joining the Play Date Cafe Challenge design team, which she heads up.  She is such an encouraging and caring person, who has always made me feel welcome from day one, and genuinely cares about the people that play along with our challenges.  She goes the extra mile to make us all feel part of a great team.  As if she wasn't busy enough with the PDCC she also has her own personal blog. She makes some fab creations so pop on over to see her.  You won't be disappointed. 

I used this 2 Sketches 4 You sketch.  Such a simple sketch, but it really sparks my creativity.  Thanks Laura, love it!

I seem to be on a bit of a Cosmo Cricket (DeLovely) thing at the moment.  Every time I make a card I want to use these papers!  I hope you don't get too fed up with seeing them!  I used Lawn Fawn stamps for the cake and sentiment, did a little bit of stitching (I thought you were worth the effort Julie!) and distressed the edges of my paper. When I do this I always wonder if people will think I've just grabbed an old scrap of paper that should have been thrown out!  It's ok for us in the card making world, but what about those that don't know the latest trends.  What will they think of it all lol

Hope you likey!
