Hello all hope you are having a good day, I am doing a bit of this and that,can't seem to concentrate I had some sad news last night my work colleague passed away, she had cancer, she was a very brave lady and always put others before herself, she will be sadly missed.

I thought I would share with you my Birthday card I sent into Create and Craft for their Birthday card competition, It's from one of my favorite Characters Beatrix Potter.
I have used an 8 x 8 blank card the papers decoupage are all from Beatrix Potter Cd available from Crafters Companion the flowers are from Wild orchid Crafts. The Ribbon and Epiphany Charm Embellishment are also from Crafters Companion.
