My Fab Followers and Blogging Friends

Wednesday, 2 November 2011


We all have special friends in our lives, and when it comes to their birthday, we like to make them something special to let them know we appreciate them. This week's theme over at For Fun Challenges is to make a SPECIAL BIRTHDAY CARD. Not just an ordinary birthday card, it MUST be something special FOR someone special.

This week we are sponsored once again by the fabulous Bugaboo, and have a wicked prize of 7 digis from their store.

I used the fab JJ from the Tequila & Shoes collection, and the image is called Tequila. Here's my card:

I coloured JJ with Promarkers to match the DPs, which I chose because they're bright & cheerful. The ric rac is made of felt, and reminded me of what the floor can look like after a few drinks!! The sentiment comes with the image, and I changed the font to Cocktail Bubbles, which I thought was perfect for the image! I also created another senti which says 'Happy Birthday to my Fabby Friend.'  I added some die-cut photo hinges attached with flower-brads, some more felt ric rac at the top and a handbag charm to finish.

It is for one of my bestest online buddies who has a birthday this month...can't say who as she may read this!!! :-P

I will enter my card for the following challenges:

Hope to see you join us this week.
