Another day

off due to the snow!!! Im sure most people in other countries must be laughing their pants off at us Brits!!

On the upside, it means I have time to make another card!! This one is for the Midnight Madness challenge. It uses one of my fav stamps, that gorgeous mermaid from Third Coast Art. The sentiment is a Stampin' Up one and says 'sending you birthday wishes on your special day'. (told you I had to bump up my B-day card stock lOL)

Have a fabulous Wednesday!
