Forever Christmas?????

I loved using the Forever Friends Christmas stamps on my Christmas cards but no-one said a "Friend" is just for Christmas! thought I'd ink him up again and use him on a birthday card instead. I found a small best wishes stamp to stamp the tag with. I paper pieced the present, the My Minds Eye papers were free on a magazine months ago, now I see the photo on here,I think they look far too busy to have put together,still,I'm sure my friend will be pleased to receive it on her birthday. The flourishes were cut using a revolution die adding some self adhesive pearls to the dotted ends.
I'm using this card for the following Challenges:-
Meljens 41,Round or square card,
Stamp Something,Anything goes,
AIF64,Anything goes,
Stampin Bees 93,Use a die cut,
Oldie but Goodie 10,Bright and cheerful.
Now I need to share something with you,I've had around 170 blog visitors in the last 24 hours,that's bloomin good for me,I can tell you but there's a good reason for this,I had one of my cards on the Friday Followers Gallery at ikki's cuttlebug cupboard. If you have a Cuttlebug its an excellent blog to visit,you can find no end of useful hint's,tips and ideas for using your bug,well worth a visit.
I also need to thank Samara for the Stylish Blog award,I haven't forgotten about picking it up but I really need to think up some interesting facts about boring little old me:)
Thanks all for stopping by,enjoy your weekend,
Julie.x
