Good morning everyone...I hope you all had a wonderful was my 23rd wedding anniversary yesterday and the four of us went for a lovely Sunday lunch which was so scrummy and filling there was no room for dessert...I made up for it later though by having a chocolate cupcake...yum yum! There are more celebrations to come this week as today is my birthday and tomorrow is hubby's's always a mad 3 days but we kinda like it that way!

Shelly has chosen this weeks theme over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge's a fab theme called BLOOMING CHARMING...which means we want you to use blooms and charms on your cards. I have always struggled in the past using charms on my cards as I could never attach the links properly...I bought myself some small jewellery pliers which I used for the first time on this card and I have to say it was soooo easy...I'll deffo be using them more in the future now!

Donna, first - HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope today is just another fun way to celebrate with loads of goodies brightening the path! What a gorgeous card. I love how you speckled the fur of this cute little hedgehog - I thought it was flocked at first - very clever! I love the papers and the flower is so well coordinated; a perfectly lovely card! Also, Happy Anniversary - great way to celebrate though; a constant party during the week - how fun is that?!
