Hi to a fine Monday. What gorgeous weather...this pretty stamp is from Crafty Sentiments named 'tea party anyone?' is great for sunny birthdays. I remember feeding my toys cups of tea many many years is ofcourse a childhood thing and I just love this coupled with the circle stamp at the top, also from CS, I added the 'birthdays' afterwards and got it right on cue!  Image is coloured with Promarkers, some digi paper which has decided to change colour while it was printing...all that blue was meant to be green but I still like it. Used my MS fence border punch, found some neglected ribbon for a bow and glitter glue plus some Glamour Dust to finish.
