With a cherry on Top!

Good afternoon and I hope you're enjoying the Monday Bank Holiday if you're in the UK.

I'm just having a quick coffee break.  I've washed the garden table and chairs in anticipation of fine weather later this week.

We have friends coming tomorrow for  five days to help us celebrate Hubby's special birthday on Thursday.

I have  a scheduled card for Wednesday but other than that won't be around much until Sunday.

Here's a card I made some time ago with bits and bobs that were hanging around.  I think the sentiment and the cake and strawberry, which I coloured with Promarkers, are from an old Hero Arts set.

I'm entering my card in the Allsorts Challenge #361 "With a Cherry on Top"

Also the yummy looking goody is set off very nicely with this design as well. Enjoy your friends' visit and Happy Birthday to the Mr. Off to a great start with this darling card. TFS

  32. Your card looks good enough to eat. I'm a bit worried your chair washing will bring rain, but the forecast is good, so have a fab time celebrating with your friends, and the sun will surely shine xxx

  33. Hi Barb

    A great card. I love the tiny cake on the tag and how you have coloured the strawberry! It looks real!

    I hope hubby has a great birthday tomorrow .. .. and you get to use those cleaned down chairs! Ours still have a layer of dirt on them - not much chance of needing them here just yet.

    I think white card Wednesday is going to be my challenging day .. .. not brave enough for WOW just yet .. .. will have to build up to that! LOL!!

    Love Jules xx
