Be a dreamer for a Birthday Celebration, a Blogversary and Challenges ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  I got to play a little at the weekend, in between DT projects, and as I still have my H2O paints out I tried out some more different styles.  Also I wanted to create a project for two bloggers I follow.  Here is my card which luckily for me fits both of your link ups and a couple of challenges too 

There is something about these birds that really appeals to me
A final look

Created especially for these:
Birthday Week Link Up.  When I first saw Becca’s banner I had to use this stamp, 
he’s on the banner but he’s taken his sunglasses off lol!

I was introduced by Sandy Allnock who did a recent CASE. 
Once I saw Jenn's creations I knew I wanted to follow the blog.
Jenn’s creations are totally inspiring to me.  I chose the card on the right to CASE.

Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge ‘I’ for inspired & irridescent
Jenn’s card for the DT really inspired me!

I love these quirky birds too Karen, they're sort of ugly-cute aren't they?
Look forward to seeing more of your projects with them.

Hi Karen, just catching up with everyone after my holidays. You've created some gorgeous projects this month so far...particularly loving your calendar pages. Today's card is such a cutie and has given me an idea for a quick birthday card I need for my Uncle. Carol x
