Hello friends
Today a card that I have created for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
It appeared on their blog yesterday with some step by step instructions.
If you do have a spare minute I'm always very thankful if you could leave a comment over there.  
The papers are Authentique - Peaceful.
It was a simple card to put together, just using pieces of the patterned paper and 
Parisian Accents  for the border and medallion shape.   
3D Foam Pads always add that extra effective dimension.

A peaceful card but I'm not so sure it will be peaceful in my little world today - 
I've got things planned and a family meal this evening because it is ....
my birthday today! 

I will probably have photos to share ..I've asked Bella if she has been gift shopping but
she's keeping quiet! 

Before I go - answers to questions:
The pretty charm used on my card yesterday is from Bo Bunny -
is it also part of Father Christmas Collection and called a trinket - you can buy them from here.

I was asked about a 'Spellbinders' magazine yesterday.  Just to clarify, the magazine has been produced by 
Creative Expressions, not Spellbinders™ .  

Have a good day - I'm off to eat lots of cake! 
Take care.

Hi Christine. Happy birthday - all the best people are born at this time of year - my birthday is in two weeks time! Hoping for some more Spellbinders for my addiction! What are you hoping for apart from cake? I promise I will send you a picture of my finished advent frame and a picture of Toby for the pets gallery....soon. Busy trying to sort out so many things haven't had much time for crafting but will make time this week. Have a lovely day. Julie
