Happiness is....

Making cards, being happy, just spending an afternoon with my daughter sitting with her making her card and me mine!

Not much to say today really, still as busy as ever with the schools hols being on, counting down the weeks (3 now!) until she starts school proper.

Hopefully heading out for a day tomorrow, we finally got her to stay asleep past 6am and then not come in and wake us straight away!  We get to 7am now -who, ho!  Of course, when school starts that will all change again and I have to be up at 6 as school (as nursery used to) starts at 8.30am.

So enough waffle - the card I made is:

I used:
Little Claire 'Birdcage' stamp - coloured with my Prismas and highlighted the birdcage with 3d gloss / Glamour Dust (ha,ha, got you bet you thought I was going to say stickles - I'm being a rebel and using something different!).
The papers are all Basic Grey - Porcelain paper pad
Sentiment is from an Inkadinkado set
Flowers are Prima, button from button box.
Card blank is Craftwork Cards.

I'd like to enter this into:
Little Claires - Things with wings
Delightful Challenges - Things with wings

Hope you all are well and happy.
