ITs YOUR BIRTHDAY with a Bestie


Hope all my bloggy friends are having a wonderful weekend.  Its cold and wet here in Johannesburg, perfect weather for staying indoors and being crafty.
I am here today with another Birthday Card using this adorable boy and girl, which I am sure are brother and sister, lol, from MY BESTIES which you can purchase here

  The buttons, brads and design papers are from my stash. The pinwheels have been created with scallop square and circle punches {see tutorial below}. Used some dry chalks around the image and on the sentiment.  The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  
Here is the TUTORIAL for the pinwheels:

    2. Super colouring, interesting pattern combinations and great that you included your pinwheel tutorial. Thanks for joining us at Come And Get It challenges, CarolG & DT

    3. I really like your design and colour choice on this project. It really compliments that beautifully coloured image.
      So glad you dropped it onto the front at 613 Avenue Create this week.

    4. This image would be perfect for a card from my nephew to his neighbor girl. He loves wearing his hair in a similar style like this for special occasions, he's nine, and the neighbor girl is the same age and is in love with my nephew. They're the bestest of friends and he likes her company. It's a sweet image and card design.

    5. A fabulous card Desire, such a sweet image and great sentiment. Thank you for sharing your pinwheel tutorial.
