Happy Birthday to...Me! Well, nearly

Morning all.  I hope you have managed to finish all those last minute Christmas cards before the big day on Wednesday. I'm still colouring a few images as I'm not fed up yet.  The hope is to get a head start for next year.  Well, I can but dream.  In the meantime, we can go back to all the normal card making duties.  Today's challenge at Make My Monday is to make a Female Birthday Card.  I've chosen this subject as I know how difficult it is to get birthday cards once the Christmas madness starts.  I also know what it's like to have a birthday around Christmas time.  Apparently, I should have been born in January but, probably for the only time in my life, I was early.  You try organising a birthday celebration for the night before New Years Eve.  Everyone is either partied out or going out the next night.  Good job I'm not much of a party girl!

Anyway, I've made a card to give me a gentle reminder that Christmas is now over and I need to get back into the swing of things.

Yep,  back to Slimming World next week.  Not that I ever left but this last ten pound is proving difficult to shift.  I've used this brilliant image by Mo's Digital Pencil called 'Hoping'.  Just recently I don't even think I've bothered hoping. Never mind.  It will come off eventually. 

Let's see those girly images coming out ladies and gents.  I want to see what you've got to inspire me for the females in your life.

Please pop over and see what the DT have for you.  Their cards are always so inspirational.

Thanks for reading.

  3. Love your card Dawn, a message for me too!
    I joined SW in May and it’s changed my life completely eating-wise. I have lost just under three stone and feel so much healthier. Now I am making better and healthier choices.
    Wishing you a very Happy Christmas.
