Happy Birthday Ashley and Oh yeah Happy Christmas

16 January 2014
I can not believe my son is now 17!

Happy Birthday Hunny,
I am very proud of you!
He is my card I have made for him...

Here are the challenge I am playing along with for this card: 

Incy Wincy Designs - Add Texture
Allsorts - Use Ribbon no Bows
Di's Digis Designs - Celebrations
New - Cardz 4 Guyz  - Happy Birthday
Deep Ocean - Birthday
Totally Gorjuss - Manly

And also as today is Thursday
I have a new AYLI challenge for you too!

Also today we have a new As You Like It Challenge

we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments and have a fabulous challenge
your Favourite fav C&S design (either one you have seen, or one you made before and want to make again cause you love it
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Its hard to choose a favourite C&S design as I had a few I love but this is
certainly top of the list I have kinda Case'd one of Jens cards HERE
you can see the slanted paper strip and I have added the snowflake instead of sentiment.
 I LOVE the snowflake die its a cuttlebug one I have had for years but I LOVE it! and I love sewing on cards and the papers are New MME
I think that this will be a card that I make quite a few of nice and simple. In the centre of the snowflake is a MME Enamel Dot! loving those too and they are also New to me.

Here are the challenge I am playing along with for this card:

Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Stitching
The Squirrel & the Fox - Show off your new stuff
Addicted to CAS - Die Cut
Jingle Belles - Something Old - Cuttlebug Die
Something New - Papers and Enamel Dot.Die Cuttin' Divas - Out With The Old & In With The New  - Something Old - Cuttlebug Die + Something New - Papers and Enamel Dot.

Have a Great Day!
