Happy Birthday George!!!

Today is the birthday of a good friend of mine - Georgina!!

Here is the card I made for her! I wanted to make something a bit more special than a normal card so I used this gatefold tutorial of Beate's which was Great!

My friend loves ferrets - she is 'mum' to two lively little ferrets and loves them to bits... so I really wanted to include some ferrets on the card .. I found lots of photos on the net and then drew a couple on my Wacom tablet ... they are not brilliant but they pass as ferrets I think! :D
I also used 2 gorjuss girls from Sugar Nellie as the stamps - coloured green of course as that's George's fav. colour!

I wrote a little acrostic poem --->

took quite a while to make overall but I was pretty pleased with the end result!
