Fab 'n' Funky ~ Birthday Using Numbers

Happy New Year my lovely blogging buddies! I tried my best to get around a few of you today, but it would seem Mr Blogger didn't want to play nice and I had to 'prove' I was human for lots of the comments, some of which came up with 404 errors, so if you didn't get a New Year message from me, please don't cry in your coffee, it's Mr Bloggers fault! LOL.

Right, now that's said, onto today's post. Whoop whoop, my first post of 2017! We have our second challenge of 2017 at Fab 'n Funky and our lovely hostess today is the fabulously talented Pat K. Totally go check out her blog, she's amazing! Pat has chosen the theme 'Birthday Using Numbers'. Always a good and popular theme, so I hope you'll come and join in the fun with us this challenge.

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps. These guys have such cute and fun images with more than a few cheeky sentiments for those who like to make those 'tongue in cheek' cards. I've used an image I had in my stash, as I needed to get this done before my sponsor image arrived. I think this wee cutie fits the bill really well though. It's called Turtle's Birthday. I coloured the image with Distress Inks and kept the card very CAS as I'm right in the middle of a big clean up in my crafting space, so not a lot of bench space down there! I've used a lovely shimmery card base and as those of you who follow my blog will know, I LOVE green, so this card is chock full of shades of green! There's blue there too, but so much green, it's hard to tell, hehe.

I hope you'll find time to come and join our second Fab 'n' Funky challenge for 2017. It's going to be a good year and we have plenty of fun in store for you and some great sponsors and challenge themes. We also will have a few new crew joining us for 2017 too, so be sure to watch for that announcement and come and say hi.

Wishing you all a fabulous New Year. 2017 HAS to be better than last year. So I have all my fingers and toes crossed that good energy, love, health and happiness follows you all this year. I think this card says it quite well with this sweet Penny Black Sentiment from her 'Sprinkles & Smiles' set ~ Bring On The Happy! Hugs, Wends xoxo

Love your card Wends - I have that image, but have never used it 'monochrome' as you have here!! Thanks for the inspiration. I too had problems with blogger earlier in the year - seems to be a bit more civilised now...

I think I have developed a soft spot for green because it's Dr. Hubby's favourite colour! Your card is certainly looking resplendent in shades of gorgeous green and it's impossible not to smile at the fun design and that cute image :-) <-------see, that's me smiling - lol!
I have to say that I was particularly struck with the sentiment and thought it would be a good motto for 2017...and then I got to the end of your post and found you had the same thought...great minds and all that - lol! I really hope that 2017 does bring on the happy for you :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
