Happy Everything

It's my dd, Annabel's birthday today and what a lovely day we've had.
Her b/f took her to Bamburgh for the weekend and they called in on their way home.
We sat in the garden,with our Pimms, and had a lovely lunch of butterflied, rosemary lamb
 with greek salad and tzatziki.
Here's the card I made for her.



 My starting point was the ribbon - Annabel's favourite, 
and I knew I had to use one of my Uptown Girl stamps.
I coloured her with Copics and some glamour dust, then cut her out 
and used foam pads to add some dimension.

 

I've just realised we didn't take one single pic of us, or our lunch!
Duh!!  But Annabel did snap this one of her dog Ollie, with our Suzie.
