My Friend - One card three challenges!

Hi everyone!

I finally got a chance to play in my craft room this morning! Yesterday the kids had a PD Day from school and whilst it was freezing outside (-31oc in the wind chill) we kept busy together inside. It's not that much warmer today either but I have to say it's wonderful to see the sun shining!

So I pulled out some PB stamps today and decided to use this cute image for the first challenge over at Totally Papercrafts - Friends. I followed Jeanette's fabulous sketch over at Friday Sketchers and used flowery papers and a prima flower which can be entered in for Cute Card Thursday's challenge - Blooming Gorgeous.

I coloured this sweet image in with my Distress Inks and sponged a little Broken China onto the background to create some sky. I used the MS Doily border punch and my oval nesties for the sentiment. The sentiment stamp is from The Stamp Barn. I think the paper is Daisy D's but please correct me if I'm wrong.

Well, there it is. It's my hubby's 40th birthday today we're just chilling out at home (too cold to go out, lol). He's a quiet, homey kinda guy so doesn't want a big deal so we're having a nice home-cooked meal in together tonight as a family.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking the time to view my work. I love your visits and really appreciate all the comments you leave. I hope you're enjoying a fabulous weekend!

Danielle, that paper is my most favourite paper that I ever bought. I used some of my last pieces last summer! I actually had my PB images set to do today...LOL
We need to get together and play sometime!!!!!!
I love this spring card...I love the softness of it and the image is so adorable!!!!! Love the MS punches that you used on the bottom and I LOVE how you layered the pattern...what a great idea!
Well, things are suppose to warm up a little tomorrow so lets keep out fingers crossed. My kids are off school on Monday so I am really looking forward to that! A little break for them!
Hope your hubby has a wonderful birthday!!!!!
