Make a Wish and Believe - My Crafty Heart DT Card

Good morning.
This is a scheduled post as I am hopefully too busy being spoilt today as it is my
BIG 50th Birthday :o)
Seriously though I have received so many cards and gifts - all beautiful I'm sure as I have resisted temptation to have a peek that I will be some time just opening them :o)
I will be back to thank you all personally later today or early tomorrow.
And of course it's Wednesday so my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver will be coming to play.

So I am writing this post on my Birthday Eve as I wanted to share a card I have made using some gorgeous stash from 

Card Ingredients:
Image: Gorjuss Girls 'The Get Away'- MCH  currently on Special Offer
Colouring Medium: Copics
Butterfly: Mesh Butterflies - MCH  (I coloured a white one with Copic pen)
Sentiment Tags: LOTV
Dusty Concorde Distress Ink
Martha Stewart Scalloped Heart Border Punch

This will probably be a card for my scrummilicious Lola Arizona - her favourite colours are pink and purple and even though she is not quite two yet (she will be in 3 weeks though) she has already mastered 
'the look'!!!

Before I go I also wanted to share a couple of pictures taken when Jack came home form school with a surprise cake he made for me with the help of his DT teacher - it was scrummy yummy :o)

Thanks for popping by today.
Hope to catch you all later.
Have a wonderful day.
