Charisma Cardz - Don't be Square!

Good morning all, what a lovely day I had yesterday (my birthday) spoilt rotten a meal out with the family, truly fabby!!  
Time for a new Charisma Cardz challenge and the theme this week is 'Don't be Square', square being my most favoured shaped card, but this wasn't so bad!  I made an A5 sized card, I'm limited on colours as mine are or have run out, should really spend some of my birthday money on replacements I think!!  But I really like the colour combo, the flower didn't quite look right so I just added the small piece of lace which I think works a treat.  Actually used a peeloff for the sentiment, which is a first for a loooooooong time, I coloured it to match the coloures with my peel off markers something else which I haven't used for ages!
Hope you like it and hope you'll join in with the challenge.
All sponsor and prize information along with inspirational makes from the rest of the DT can be found on the challenge blog HERE.

Have a wonderful day  xx

40th birthday celebrations

Well today it was/is my 40th birthday, do I feel any different? any older? actually no I don't, heh it's just another day!!  Some days I feel my age other days I feel about 80 lol!!!  
I've been thoroughly spoilt, lots of cards, money, delicious perfume from my lovely work girlies, more perfume, choccies (naughty for the diet, so will have to ration these!), clothes, a fabby purse with our dog on it so that he can be with me wherever I go, the list goes on...........
We went out for a family meal, it was lovely!  There was a balloon modeller in the restuarant he has got to be the best one we've seen, his creations are ace!  The kids asked for theirs and my sis asked him to make me something as it was my birthday, here's what I got!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the totally bazarre thing is why did he choose Minnie Mouse?  We're off to see the mouse herself really soon?!?!?
here are the other balloons he made for us, well except the 40 one!!
and here I am with hubs who made my birthday cake whilst I was at work!  The waitress brought the cake over asked me to stand up and then announced to the whole restaurant that it was my birthday and got everyone to sing to me, talk about embarrassed lol!!!
It truly has been a fabulous day xxxx

Charisma Cardz - sketch

Good morning, Charisma Cardz challenge time again, and this week we have a fabulous sketch to follow, always good when you run a little dry on ideas!!
For my card I have gone for a slight halloween theme, the bubble stickers are ones I picked up a couple of weeks ago, just incase I ever get around to doing any scrap pages!
This is a great layout for scrap pages as the photo can take centre place and you can tart it up with all sorts of embellies!
one fabby sketch (thanks Natalie!)
