A Christmas Birthday...


I hope you all had a super holiday! I'm still in the midst of recovering from the busiest few days of the year: we had not only Christmas, but a Christmas Birthday to celebrate and a Christmas Wedding to attend (that looked so pretty with the snow surrounding!) so I'm ready for some rest and it's not even New Years Eve quite yet!

But enough of my plans, the reason I'm here is to share this card with you:

Happy Birthday

This was made for my mum's birthday (celebrated on Boxing Day!)

I'm also being super sneaky as it also fits into our new challenge on the our PTI blog! We're keeping our challenge this fortnight pretty simple due to the busy season so all we're asking is that you incorporate a background set into your project and use at least one Papertrey ink product. Easy peasy! As you can see - I'm a sucker for polka dots and adore my Polka Dot Basics II set :)

So if you can find any spare inky time then we'd love it if you could join in the fun with us! Up for one lucky European Peeps is a PTI Signature Series: Cupcake mini stamp set!

I'll be catching up with y'all via my Google Reader as soon I recover from being a party animal: you can tell I'm getting older with the amount of days rather than hours it takes to recover from the late nights - ha!

Stay tuned tomorrow for a new CASE study too! I'll be sharing the card I made for the wedding we attended on Monday - I don't have any wedding themed stamps so I really had to think outta the box for that one...

Catch ya later!
