Hi Everyone!

I'm back on board and feeling like creating again - YAY!!
(Sorry it's been a while again... I had a marathon one month of non-stop migraines - icky!)

But here I am again with another card! And it has to be a happy card because it's OUR BIRTHDAY'S on Saturday & Monday!!! My birthday is the 6th March and my gorgeous hubby's is the 8th March, so we LOVE what we call "TaDBOB" (The Day Between Our Birthdays!!) ;)

And even though we are heading towards the end of our Summer in Australia, I felt inspired by all the Spring papers and cards coming out over from you guys in the Northern Hemisphere!

So here it is.... Joy Blossom!


My Grandma's name was Joy, so I'm sure she would have liked this one!

I've used the StampTV Sketch STVSCJH13 courtesy of Jenny Harper, and was inspired by the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger!
I picked the Unity stamp from the August '09 Kit of the Month - Unity stamps are all so bright and fun! - and then some of the yummy Lemonade DP from Basic Grey. 

I also combined this card with the following challenges;
