Happy Birthday Bugaboo

Bugaboo Stamps are celebrating their first Birthday and they have got some amazing things going on over there all week with some fab prizes.

Took part in their blog hop yesterday, which took me forever, but was so worth it their DT have come up with some fantastic ideas one of my favorites was Melissa's banner, but everybodies are brill and all well worth a look :)

Any way this first challenge is to make a project with a birthday theme. I'm afraid I have been pretty boring and made a birthday card.
Have used the fab JJ and coloured her with promarkers and copics and added some sparkle to her boa. Used some very pretty paper from Forever Friends, which I have machine stitched, this is my first attempt at using my sewing machine on a card, wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be :) The lilac flower is from the Pound shop and the other flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Sentiment is from LOTV and have used my fab new nesties to cut circles.

I will do an inside for this card and will be using it for a friend at work who's birthday is the end of this month.

Looking forward to the rest of the challenges from Bugaboo, just hoping I get the chance to have ago at them all :)

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment as I love reading them xx

Great fun card Suzilou :) I love the DP and your colouring is fab. Circles are what nesties were made for, they look so perfect, and I love how you have used colour on the sentiment.

....and Pound shop - made me guffaw! :D Its great to raid places like that - you just never know what you will find. The best thing about them is unlike most shops, you can afford to buy anything you want! ;)

Have a great week, dont work too hard,
