**Birthday Cheer!**

Morning all...hope you are all well!

Well its Friday! Yay!

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday and I although I was at work I was thoroughly spoilt.  When I arrived a there was a big pile of cards and presents waiting for me on my desk, and then at lunch time Adam surprised me with a delivery of the most beautiful flowers. Maybe spoilt was an understatement!  I spent the evening scoffing pizza and guzzling wine with friends - it was the perfect end to a great day! And it also means that now I can look forward to continued celebrations tomorrow evening with my "Animal Print" themed birthday party!
My flowers - beautiful right?

Ok so enough about me! I wanted to share with you the card that i've been teasing you with all week! *Drum roll please....*

I made this card for Chloe - my best friend.  She had to move to Winchester over Christmas and New Year as her Fiance, Tom had to move depots and she has already found herself a job!  I thought this was a perfect opportunity to send her a card and kill two birds with one stone!  As I said in my previous post one of my many new years resolutions was to experiment with inking and thats exactly what I did with this card.  I gathered all my bluey- teal inks and just dabbed away! Gradually getting darker towards the outside of the circles and I have to admit i'm chuffed with the outcome! I finished it off with the "Congrats" sentiment from Papertrey Ink's - Say it with Style and few colour coordinated adhesive gems!  I can't wait to read her text when she receives it!

So thats about it from me today! But again I want to leave you with a little teaser for my next post! After receiving so many beautiful birthday cards it gave me some inspiration!

Can you guess what it is yet? 
Thank you for reading! Until next time...

Take Care
