Cute Card Thursday # 149 and Colour Create # 63 and Moving Along With The Times # 83

This is a card I made this weekend in between doing taxi service for Shannon and Sophie on Friday and Saturday night.  Shannon was at her friends on Friday night and working on Saturday and Sophie went ten pin bowling on Friday and cinema on Saturday.  As you are out and in, you don't get a lot done or a chance to sit down and relax. 
Took Hollie into town on Saturday to see what she would like for her birthday.  Her birthday is on Valentine's Day and she will be nine.  She picked a signet ring and a pair of Canterbury tracksuit bottoms and hoody for P.E. and Hockey at school.   Now just have to make her birthday cards. 
It was my birthday on Tuesday this week but it sort of past by without notice, with all that has been going on with hubby's shop.  Got a bouquet of flowers (something I don't really like receiving, as they never last and they are so expensive) and was taken out for a meal last night.  Unfortunately was sick when I came home, think I just ate too much.  It was three courses for £10.00 and they were big portions. Hubby has told me when things get sorted  he will get me a present then.  Have hinted at the Grand Calibur, but don't know.

Anyway onto my card and I am entering it into three challenges:-

Happy Birthday Donna! Your life sounds like mine with driving the kids here there and everywhere.It is hard to sit for an hour and make a card! Oh well, one day they will be gone and we will miss it. I just love your card! The cards remind me of lemonade colours...which means spring/summer for me! LOVE it! Beautifully layed out!

Oh gorgeous, adorable card Donna. Do check out the calibur before buying, I hear it doesn't take all dies.

Hi Donna, Happy Belated Birthday!! Love your card - fab image and I love your colours and layout. Trish x

Aww, sounds like you had a pants birthday - not nice being sick either :(

I was bought some flowers 3 weeks before christmas, and I only just threw them out - I couldnt believe it - just supermarket carnations, last a good 7 weeks - amazing!

Anyway, back to the card - I love the colours Donna, and this is a gorgeous SN image coloured fabulously. I love the punchwork and the DP is lovely too.



PS - I read on Bevs blog that it can be frustrating that the Caliber doesnt take all dies, so I guess it depends on what you intend to use it for. x
