Happy Birthday To Me!

Today is my Birthday and I've been totally spoilt. I had a great lunch with some good friends who also spoilt me. (thanks girls) My kids took their dad shopping to get me a cake and pressie. Hmm, I was a bit worried about what they would bring back. But they did ok.

All in all I had a great day. With flowers, chocies, wine, cake, bed socks, (before hubbie took the kids shopping he was joking that they would get me socks & jocks, because that's what the kids always get him.lol) good friends and a loving family what more could a girl want......

It was a bit weird making a birthday card for myself, but I wanted to make one for my Monthly Challenge and the kids can write in it and give to me. I've used the Happiness background stamp with the Stampin Write Markers (you can get these singly during November.) The flower image is from True Friend, and the word happy is from Polka Dot & Paisley stamp set. For some bling I've added a pink rhinestone brad to the center of the jumbo eyelet. I think I covered everything in the challenge, flowers, stripes, dots, a big bow and the colours. I like it!
