Happy Birthday at Ooh La La Creations - CH#183

Good morning my friends, I am very happy to say that this morning I woke up with a Right hand, instead of a claw, for the 1st time in a week.  I have made a start visiting your blogs, and hope to be up to date sometime today...not knowing where this disease is heading next in the body, hoping also to get some DT work done, not crafted since a week past Thursday, so really missing it.

Today at:-

which is my choice of theme, nice and easy..I chose this theme, as July we have a huge amount of birthdays, Our oldest Daughter and youngest daughter, both share a July birthday, also our Oldest Grandchild, and looking like our youngest Grandchild (if Jack Alexander Watson, makes an appearance on time, he is 25th July, which would have been my lovely Grannies 101st birthday, so fingers crossed, he is indeed born that day). will both share a July Birthday.

Nicola is 37 on the 5th July, so I made her Birthday card for the challenge, she loves fairies, purple and butterflies, so I think I fitted all that in, LOL.

Backing Card, Flowers, Charm, Brads, Gems, Spider Webbing, from Stash
Fairy Dies - Joanna Sheen
Butterfly Punch - Tonic - bought from Amazon
Ribbon, and Bow made from Zutter Bow it all V2 - from JT's Ribbon Designs

I hope you can all join us this fortnight for the Happy Birthday challenge.  If you would like to find out who won, our last challenge and see our DT's projects, pop over HERE.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

That is all from me for now, have a wonderful day, and many thanks for visiting.
