Big Birthdays

Good morning! There's a great new challenge starting today over at Fab N Funky, sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo , the theme this week is ' Big Birthdays' chosen by of our lovely teamie Susan...who just happens to have just celebrated a 'BIG Birthday' of her own!
There are so many brilliant images suitable for this theme over at Bugaboo stamps, I eventually plumped for this one, available here , because it really made me laugh! I always used to tell my children when they asked my age ...21 and a bit...ok it was a big bit ...and it kept getting bigger each birthday....but it wasn't a fib!
Thanks for visiting today, there's some fabulous Big Birthday cards to be enjoyed, created by my talented teamies, just click here to pop over and take a look, and of course we would be delighted if you joined in this week!

Chris this card is so fun! I LOVE that fabulous numbers paper, it really sets the scene so perfectly. Brilliant choice of stamp, ole Stella there is the life of the party (obviously!) LOL. That sentiment so makes me laugh, too funny. Thank you my sweet friend for my own special 'big birthday' card. I utterly LOVE it! You so made my day when that arrived. I love 'Wee' stamps, and green is my favourite colour!! So you couldn't have made it more 'for me' than that! Thank you, and I will treasure it and pop it up in pride of place in my craft room (did I say thank you already, feeling like maybe I did, but it's worth saying twice!) Huge hugs, Wends x
