Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, La la lah!

The title to this post needs to be hummed! Any one old enough to remember the band Altered Images? Clare Grogan the singer, Happy Birthday the song... now there's a memory from the early eighties! Ah, happy, carefree times. I digress!
I love wrapping presents and coordinating papers and ribbons making even the simplest gifts look pretty. As I finished the last one of my daughters gifts... I realised I had totally forgotten to make her a card (shame on me!) It's late, so this is probably the quickest card I have made in years... not a stamp in sight! just 2 pieces of free paper from a craft magazine and some dodgy freehand cutting, I like it though. 
Happy 15th Els... you are and always will be the best thing I ever made!
Kept it to one colour... couldn't find anything to disguise the Wok though! No, it's not cleverly disguised in the photo's!! Small gifts, loadsa love.

Hello Anna, There is lot of love in your card and that's what your daughter will remember. Happy Birthday Els!

Thank you so much for the encouraging words you left on my new blog. It is a little bit scary to venture out into selling at a booth. I appreciate all the reassurance that I can get. Thank you, you are a sweetie, and thank you, too, for following my market blog Connie :)
