We have a birthday challenge at Fab'n'Funky Challenges this week - and Monday surprise!

Good morning all

It's challenge time over at Fab'n'Funky challenges again

and our lovely Sharon has chosen the theme 


I'm almost caught up with myself after my hollies -but I have no idea where time goes - mine is just speeding by - so much to do - so little time to do it!  

At least we have some decent weather now and I intend to make the most of the sunshine - walks on the beach with my faithful hound and BBQ's in the garden - what could be nicer.

I had a lovely surprise on Monday too - my DH took me to buy a new car - (I think he bought it for himself actually - I may need to fight him off lol) - so I'm getting a lovely new Black Mini Spaceman within the next week - I'm so excited - I've had my good old Ford Fiesta for 7 years - but no time for sentiment - it's time to say goodbye : )
- it's up for sale now so if you're after a Ford Fiesta Ghia in really great condition with under 30,000 miles on the clock - drop me a line 

Anyway - less of the gossip

Here is my birthday card - I made it for a (not so!) young lady who celebrated her 30th birthday last week - daughter of my best friend - I'm not quite sure where 30 years went

This is actually a Christmas stamp from Ching Chou Kuik
at Sweetpea stamps - called Poinsettia Fairy and available here
- she looks rather lovely as a summer fairy I think 

I coloured her with my spectrum noir pens and pencils and also coloured the card for the flowers and backing card to match with my Spectrum Noir pens

We are sponsored by the fabulous 

and have a great prize from them for this weeks lucky winner - a $20 voucher to spend in store
- how great is that!

This is what I did ....

This is beautiful Judith and I wouldn't have guessed it was a Christmas image. I bet the young lady adored it as much as I do.
