'Happy Birthday Mr.......'

Today my creation combines a new challenge over at My Time To Craft & a sneaky new release over at The Stamping Chef!!

The theme of our challenge this week at My Time To Craft is...


fantastic theme I had loads of fun deciding which papers to use with this fab image! 'Happy Birthday Mr......' is a new release from The Stamping Chef & for this weekend only you can get 20% off her!! As soon as Tamara posted a picture I just knew I was going to love her & I did. She is fab to colour!
I decided I would give this card to one of Katie's friends who has always called me 'Momma Swinscoe' (lol) She is a mad Marilyn fan & has just been voted as 'Head Girl for year 11' which is fantastic.....
