A beary happy birthday!

Well , hello again! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that no-one's gained too much weight from all the lovely festive goodies! Still, it's only a couple of days until the new year and then we can all resolve to eat healthily again!!! -well for a few days anyway!
It's my lovely friend's birthday tomorrow, so I made this card for her. The cute bear is a Mo Manning digi, part of a set (tiny dancer elements) which I treated myself to just before Christmas when there was a sale on, well it would've been rude not to!!
I think she will like the card as she loves teddy bears, still a little girl at heart, although she is now in her seventies (you'd never guess it if you knew her!), she is a wonderful lady and she's been a very special friend to me for a lot of years.

Just a quick catch up to show you how much Mathilda has grown over the last couple of weeks!
She really looks like a Great Dane now! She had a wonderful Christmas, was thoroughly spoilt with loads of presents (she has eaten quite a lot of them already- unfortunately that includes the toys as well as the treats!! Ah, well what else can you expect from a very large puppy, and she enjoyed them at the time!)
Thanks for looking!
