Time for a Birthday Party ...

Morning Folks!
Hope you're all OK?
It's an exciting week over at Sweet Stampin' - we are celebrating our 

5th Birthday!! 

We'd love you to come over and help us celebrate, just link up a project with some stamping and a birthday reference on the front. 
We have 3 fantastic sponsors for this week 

Wild Orchid Crafts
Crafty Devils
and Marianne Designs

so plenty of chances to win a nice prize.

My friend Tabby Cat is bringing along the cake to help get the celebrations started:

It's been ages since I made an easel card, I think the old Cuttlebug got a bit of a shock with the sudden outbreak of die cutting. I have to admit this card hasn't really come out like the idea in my head - I think I might have got carried away and overdone the pink ??? 

I still love this stamp though:
It's called Well Wishers from Penny Black, it's been in my stash for ages! I just used the cat this time. It's quite easy to mask off the image you want so it's like having 3 stamps in one! The sentiment is another new purchase from LOTV - must stop shopping, must stop shopping .....

Both team Abi and team Fi are celebrating over at Sweet Stampin' so there's lots of inspiration on the main blog so do try to visit us! We are also welcoming some new teamies too - exciting times!
