Good afternoon.. well It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want to .. right?? well I'm not crying but I'm a bit annoyed - I'm still sick :P no fun, no fair! Guy is now sick too .. and poor guy has spent the day sleeping mostly! I would like to sleep some more but our noisy neighbours are back and they are back with a vengeance :P moan! I did go out for a coffee with my big sis but that was pretty tiring, so rest of the day has been spent smooching around... labeling CDs for my new stamp storage system :D and I did manage to make myself a birthday card! LOL .. why not huh!!

I was pretty spoilt and this card showcases some of those birthday goodies... yup.. I morphed my new Flirty Anya with my new (old) WS Megan who I've been eying off for ages now and finally have YAY! AND new paper too! Yipee! LOVE it!
Now I wanted to make a card for The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday .. so I'll explain now...

Over at FFF - this week it's a "RULE OF 3's" ...

Here's the deal: Use THREE different patterned papers and THREE different embellishmnts on your card. Now you can use three buttons, three of anything but you also have to use TWO more embellishments then. Get it? You can have 3 or 33 embellies on your card, so long as there are THREE different types!

So my card??? There's 3 flowers, 3 butterflies on each side, 3 lots of bling as trails for each butterfly - that's three different types right... well I also added some ribbon and a brad! LOL! Ooh... and I have 4 types of PP - but I think one is almost just solid colour... so I just went a little overboard! hehe

oooh.. and Amy did a wonderful curly hair tutorial over at Color Me Copic.. so I thought I would link this up there too.. as I picked up some pointers from her video which I used in colouring Megan's hair here! Mostly I loved hearing her voice. LOL!

Copics used: Face: E000, E00, E11, RV11, Hair: E31, 33, 35, 37, Dress/ Ribbon: BV0000, BV00, BV13, Lilac spica
