Enough of Christmas cards. Birthday card today lol!

Good evening fellow bloggers!

A quick post with just to show you a card I made earlier today.  For some reason my cards take hours and hours to make.  I change my mind so many times lol.

I hope your evening is going well. Time for the weekend now , before we know it we will be in the new year. Yikes!!

I have a few birthdays in December so thought I'd make a birthday card with a difference today.

You might of seen something similar on my blog on my earlier posts. This one is made differently and you can find the tutorial here: Treat Box Tutorial

Very easy to make and ideal to put a gift in the gift box itself , candles, chocolates , vouchers etc.

The image on the base of this card was win from a blog challenge. The company that kindly sponsored the challenge is called "milk and coffee". I won 3 digi stamps of my choice and this was one of them. She's adorable and I love the scene around her. The store stock some really beautiful Digi Stamps and really affordable prices. Click in this link to take you to the store: Milk,coffee Store. I think the Digi was called "Girl and her dog drinking" .
