Red, Black & White Sassy Birthday Girl card (The East Wind image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend. I'm sadly still stuck indoors trying to get rid of my cough, I can't believe it's been a month! I have had 2 nights in a row no coughing now so hopefully I'm over it. I am going to see my "boyfriend" Adam Lambert in concert tomorrow night so I'm desperate to get better for that. 

So this is the reason why you have seen a million cards from me this month (or what might seem like a million cards hehe), I have not done much else! Here I am with another 2 cards tonight, this one is using a sassy image from The East Wind. I have also used a red Maddison flower from Flourish with a Bling, my company where we have a huge sale on, please see below for details or click on our name.

Flourish with a Bling is selling all their products for $2 each this month, that's more than half off most products!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide.
