I am so glad yesterday is over because I felt really rotten all day. No energy at all and I just wanted to curl up in a corner. Could have been the vaccination I had on Wednesday I suppose but what a difference today. I could run a marathon- in my head at least LOL!
There are several friend and family birthdays coming up soon so I set to and began to make a few cards. Following some amazing workshops last year with Birgit Koopsen, I already had some backgrounds in my stash so I found one which cut into 3 nice sized pieces. 
I roughed the edges and inked them. The colours are just lovely on these. I planned to use 6" X 6" cards and these backgrounds were just a tad too small to cover all the card so I decided to stick them to one side. With that done I could get on with some colouring.
Decisions, decisions. Can you tell I'm in love with my Distress Markers #timholtz.
An extremely generous and special friend bought me the Crazy Birds accessories stamps and dies and I can't get enough of them. They make me smile just looking at them and actually using them is so easy.
So, I coloured, smiled, coloured a bit more, smiled a bit more, die cut everything and then laughed my socks off because the end result was so funny.
So there you have it, 3 completed birthday cards. HAHA! You didn't think I was going to show you them before they had been sent out did you.......
