Hooray for Birthday Week: Day 5 - Birthday Blooms

I've finally given in and had my first hot cross bun of the season. I know we should really wait until Easter Sunday but to be fair, they have been in the shops since New Years Eve and I've done a great job waiting this long!

With the fun of Easter setting in and the long weekend starting, it reminds me that my birthday is in three days and that's how long you have left to get in on the birthday fun. For every order of $90* placed, either through me or my online store, using the Hostess Code: QDBFNAE6, will not only get to choose a Sale-a-Bration Freebie, but will also get a Birthday present from me!!  And you will go into the draw to win all the seven cards that I will be show casing this week!!

So let me show you the card I've whipped up for you today:

Now, those who are on my mailing list (which you can join by adding your email address to the 'Receive My Newsletter' link on the right) will have already seen this card as I used it as my monthly Spotlight card, but it was far to gorgeous to not share it with all of you.

This is a Tri-Fold card and opens out to be pretty big, but when folded flat it still fit's in a standard size envelope. AusPost will thank you for that.

I stamped the flower from the Birthday Blooms stamp set in Basic Black on white Shimmery paper and then used my aqua painter to colour it in.

I think my water colouring skills have really improved and this is my best attempt so far. Through a lot of trial and error, I think colouring with the light colours and building them up is so much easier.

Well, the family and I are off to do a spot of river fishing this morning. We never catch anything, but the kids love having a go and the fish love eating all the bait that falls in!

Happy Crafting,
