Late again so I know I'm going to have me legs slapped peeps.  Anyway I'm here now so good morning everyone I trust you are all well or at least on the mend!  I'm posting my card for the TTPH challenge and our theme this month is 'Birthdays' - easy peasy!!!   We've been sponsored by Zuri Artsy Craftsy and I used a gorgeous image which was a freebie on their site.

I thought these girls both looked so happy because one of them was celebrating a birthday.  


7" x 7" white card blank from Anna Marie Designs
Digi - Zuri Artsy Craftsy freebie
Papers - My Minds Eye 'Lost and Found 3' - 12" x 12" cardstock pad

Small Hydrangea Blooms die - Poppy Stamps Dies
Cross-stitch Rectangles die - Die-namics Dies (new)

Pearl Spray - Anna Marie Designs
Ribbon - Stash

I'm looking forward to seeing your creations on the Challenge blog 'cos I know that this theme is an all year rounder!!  I would add that our sponsors have asked that you use one of their images to be in with a chance of winning.  Now as I said before, there are lots of freebies on their site (here) so why not use one?

Before I go, I must tell you that the maestro and I are still losing weight, I have lost 3st and a very important half a pound, the maestro has also lost 3st plus (he's not too worried about the extra bits!).  I noticed that me undies were becoming a tad slack so said to him "I'm going to have to buy some more lingerie" - well the look on his face was priceless and then he said ..... wait for it .... "You're buying what?"  so I decided to get back to me norm and said "Duh - I'm going to have to buy some more undercrackers and a bust bodice or three"!.  "Ooohhhhhhhhhh" he says "why didn't you say that in the first place"!    Bless him eh???

Back soon to put my other late posts on!  Big hugs to you and lots of love.
