Hi all :-) I really enjoyed the recipe theme we has over the last 2 weeks on the HM&F Monday Challenge, some of the entries had yummy recipes worth trying out and some were very funny :-) Thanks to everyone who joined in !!

This fortnight we are celebrating our 3rd Birthday with a Fabulous Blog Hop !! Woo Hoo !! :-)

This time it is Natascha’s turn to choose the theme and she chose ,,,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, with an optional bunch of flowers :-)

To help us we have a new DT member joining our happy nest ,,, we are so happy to welcome the super talented Vicki aka Stamped Smiles, I am sure you all know Vicki but if by some small chance you haven’t visited her blog then you are in for a treat :-)

We also have 2 fabulous GD’s joining us for September, Sally Bowness & Tracy Thompson AND many of the previous DT members who have since gone on to pastures new, so LOTS of fabby eye candy along the way :-)

If you arrived here from the super talented Mary Gizema's blog then you are going in the right direction, if not then you will need to start from the House Mouse and friends Challenge blog

For my card I used this very cute House Mouse Bed of Flowers stamp. I coloured the image with Copics , added a few dabs of Star Dust Stickles and inked the edges with some pink chalk ink. The papers are Basic Grey from the Out Of Print pack and I added a little sprig of flowers (rather than a bouquet), the daisies are made using a Crealies die and the sprig is a Marianne Designs die. The twine is a RAK from our lovely Boss, America xx and the tag is made using a tiny x cut punch.

Thanks for looking :-) From here you need to hop on over to the lovey and super talented Lori Barnette's for more fabulous eye candy Smile
