"No Roses"

Hello Blog friends, and all who pop in for a visit today.  My goodness the start of another week.  They are fairly galloping by, I can hardly keep up with them.  Great to have you  here, I hope you like what you see and call again soon. Thank you for all the belated Birthday Wishes I really appreciate them.
Still getting over the Birthday celebrations, why does the cake seen to last so long.......!!!  I was sure it was not THAT big.  What was left I placed in a see through container.  Every time I opened the cupboard it was "winking" at me.  All gone now thank goodness, the boys polished it off yesterday.
My card for today was created while playing.  I had a thought in my head ..... well it`s nothing like what I thought...........!! hate when that happens.  I will pop it in my box it might get used sometime  in the future.

Base card is an off cut approx 4 x 7
Kraft card another bit that was cast aside, border cut with SB Edge Dies
SB Foliage Die cut then placed back in the card
Bird house Die Cut from my box.   I took a leaf out of Jules (always with a heart) book and used the tiny heart from the Bird House to pop on the card
WOC Cheery Blossom 
Organza bow

The Cheery Blossom was a bunch that fell out of a basket that John managed to knock off a shelf. 
What a load of rubbish bits fell out but it`s amazing what you find when things like that happen

That`s it folks
Thank you for calling in today I really appreciate it
Till next time
