''B' is for Beth and 'B' is for Birthday

My daughter Alice has been poorly for the last few days and it's so difficult to concentrate on all of the million of jobs that need doing even though she is sleeping most of the time! Any how I made this card at the weekend but the weather has been so awful in the UK that today I managed to just take a photo of this card before the heavens opened again.

This card is for a special little girl who lives next door who I also look after a couple of days a week. She loves recognising her name and sounds out her letters all the time when she comes to play. So, I thought I would make her birthday card for next week when she is going to be four years old.....the letter 'B' for Beth or 'B' for Birthday.

I used a similar design a few weeks ago but whilst sickness is filtering around the house I have not too much time for inspiration. I used my CDS using the Storybook cartridge to weld the letter 'B' to a rectangle, stamped and coloured my Hero Art cake stamps, added a few stickles and pearls then layered all onto some 3 Bugs in a Rug paper.

I have entered this card into several challenges namely Bitten by the Bug for a birthday card. We had to use the colours Red and Green as the primary colours of the card with at least one cut from any cricut cartridge.

I have also entered this card onto the following challenges:-

Colour Create, 365 cards, Rosiedee, Corrosive Challenge and Cupcake Craft Challenge. I hope my card fits in with the challenges but sometimes it was not clear if it had to be on a Christmas theme or not!! Hey, ho it's the most challenges I have ever entered......must be catching up on lost time!
