Birthday Roll Call

Today is a very busy day for birthdays on my calendar so I'd like to wish my BIL, Pat, Sophie and our very own Ladybug Diane a very happy birthday...hip hip hooray!!! I feel like I'm missing someone out...I'm sure I was making a LOT of cards for today lol.

You've already seen my BIL's, Pat's and Sophie's cards so today I'm going to show you Diane's in the hope that she has already received it :-D You can all pick yourselves up off the floor after reading that lol...yup..had it made and posted on TUESDAY!!!!! What can I say...I'm on fire this week rofl!!

Ready? Here it is...

I printed Bouquet Delight bigger than I normally would as I wanted it to fill the card as much as possible and be the main focal point. This made coloring the flowers a breeze. 

I added Glamour Dust to most of the flower centers and some super duper fabbily lushalicious 4 mm Swarovski silver rimmed AB crystals!!

Here's a close up of the SDFLSSRABC!!! Not very sparkilicious in the pictures but IRL...amazing :-D

I looped 4 layers of twine to make the bow

And there you have it! I must say it does look lovely IRL...the pictures aren't showing it's true beauty lol. Hopefully Diane will testify to that ;-D

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes
Copic Marker Europe - Monochromatic
MAWTT - Gardening or Flowers

My friend Elaine came by yesterday to help with the wedding favors and I'm pleased to report all the pearls have been glued and the 80 large rolled roses rolled yaaaayyyy!!!!!! Thanks Elaine :-D Still plenty to do but at least those boxes are ticked.

That's it from me for today. I've got a special card tomorrow so maybe pop back for a looksee.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Catch ya later x

ps This day next month Nicole and Ben will be married...EEK!!!!

What a stunner of a card today Kerry and posted on time...whatever next-getting to the wedding on time-LOL! I love the way digis can be resized to suit. The ribbon twine is great too. A month today fast will that go? Keep going with those favours as you need "me"time in the weeks leading up to pamper yourself and get ready for being a stunning MOTB. Keep dry, this weather is incredible.

Whoop, whoop!!!...I absolutely loved my card Kerry. IRL the bouquet is very sparkly and those gems are gorgeous. Loved the shape and you always amaze me with your stitching. It's that neat I couldn't even see where you started and
I've had a lovely birthday and now ready for a good nights sleep.
