The start of Birthday season has arrived!

Wow! You wouldn't believe how many birthday cards I have had to be making recently..Everyone I know seems to have been born around this time of the year!

I thought I would share a card today that I made for Ians Moms Birthday that was last week and I haven't had a chance to share with you before now. It was a special birthday but I decided that I didn't want to have the special age number on show all the time. So, I followed a 'card school' tutorial I found in Quick Cards Magazine number 77 for a spinning suspension card. It was fun to make and pretty straight forward, the spinning square is suspended using dental this card was minty fresh!!

The papers and images are all from my latest craft CD Rom release Colour Me Happy.  This is a close up of the suspension square twisted one way...

See it was a special birthday! The numbers were made using the extras on the CD Rom.Here's a closer look at the other side which is a digi stamp from Colour Me Happy coloured in using Sakura Glaze pens.

She seemed to really like it so that's what is important and she had a lovely day hanging out with the family and her friends.

I've been making so many cards recently that I won't be so slow in getting back here soon to share another one.
Oh and before I go, don't forget it's almost the end of the month so you still have a couple of days to join in with this months Get Funky Challenge and be in with a chance of winning a £20.00 voucher to spend on my website  The new challenge will be launch on 1st August.

Speak again very soon
