A Very 'Merry' Birthday!

Hey!

A surprise Sunday post from me today! Hope y'all having a super weekend so far and making the most of it!

This surprise post is as part of a li'l surprise blog hop celebrate the birthday of a gal who needs a special 'birthday boost' this year.

Merry is such a sweet member of the PTI Forum who has had waaaaaaay more than her fair share of tough times. Today is her birthday and as part of this wonderful online community, we wanted to let her know that we're here to celebrate this day with her, and also wanted to let her know how much we think she rocks!

So without further ado, Happy Birthday, Merry!!!!

Celebrate Your Day!

Wishing you happiness, love, peace (and cake!)

This card fits the current challenge on the fabby new CAS-ual Fridays blog (to incorporate bling in your CAS project) I'm so happy to have finally squeezed a challenge in as I just know that this is gonna be one challenge site I wanna play along with again and again :)

Edited to add: after creating this card, I've realised it could also fit in the near-ending May Gallery challenge on Paper Crafts Connection. This could easily suit a card for Mothers' Day IMHO!

OK, I gotta dash and make the most of the last few hours of the weekend. Just one more working week left until a week off - let the countdown begin! :)

Catch ya later!
