Charlottes Birthday Card

Good Morning All!

Another bright, sunny, warm day again. I wonder how long it`ll last, it is only April afterall. Make the most of it while we can I think.

Right after all the fuss I made about my grandaughters card and what to put on it, I decided that the best policy was to throw some ideas at her and hope she would give me some clues. Actually it was more like an interogation lol.
She still has yellow as her fave colour which was great and she has no problems with hair dryers or hair in general which was even better.
I would like to thank all of you that came up with ideas and suggestions and pointed me in the direction of various digi sites ( which have all been bookmarked for future reference) and especially to SANDRA who sent me the digi by e-mail that I finally used. The only problem I have now is not knowing if this is one of Sandra`s own digi`s or, if not, who`se it is so I can`t give credit. Sorry.

Anyway, without further ado here is the card, ( you might need your sun glasses on BTW)

Now I do know the digi is called Holly and I`ve coloured her with Promarkers.
The Stripey DP and the yellow spotty DP are both from Papermania I think but I`ve had them for ages so I`m not 100%.
The orangey stripes is a scrap I had in my box from Shabby Princess.
The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I`ve finished them off with gems from my stash.
I wasn`t going to bother with the numbers but changed my mind last minute which accounts for them being silver and not gold which would have been better. They are from Poundland.
The sentment is computer generated and cut out with a nestie labels 4 die as is the image.

That`s it from me for now.Hopefully I`ll be back tomorrow with another card for the new Less is More week.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
