Thanks for the wonderful birthday wishes you all sent me and especially thank you to Brenda, Tracy Mouse, Janice, Susan, Tilly/ Christine, Ann and Wendy - who so kindly sent me cards.  Gary Barlow was brilliant, don't know why the critics only gave it 4/5 - i would have given it 10/5 !!, I took my friend Celia (as she had H overnight), her children and H to lunch on Monday at ASK, then on to 'The Muppet Movie', to say thank you.

H has been invited to another party, so i needed to make a card for him - the image is : LOTV - 'Astronaut', the sentiment is : LOTV - 'Tags', the paper is : Reminisce - '3..2..1.. Blast Off !', the embossing folder is : Cuttlebug - 'Stars', the star edging is: Marianne D - 'LR0134', the ribbon is from a very old : Papermania - 'Spots and Check Blue', the ribbon has been threaded through a star cut with: Quickkutz - 'Belt Loop (Cookie Cutter Die), and the star die going down the side is: Joanna Sheen - 'Starburst', the star brad is from stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

LOTV - Ideas To Inspire Challenge - where they are celebrating their 10th Birthday and the Challenge is 'Happy 10th Birthday'

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 253 is 'No Flowers'

Cute Card Thursday - where Challenge No: 315 is 'All Boy'

Crafting When We Can - where Challenge No: 66 is 'For A Child'

Ooh La La Creations - where Challenge No: 153 is 'For A Child'
