Buddha's Birthday

First of all I would like to wish my Mam a very Happy Birthday.  We have just spent a lovely week in the UK with my parents and family.  We managed to visit lots of different places which included Eden Camp (POW camp) which was fantastic.  My daughter loved Flamingo Land which is a zoo and theme park and we had a visit to Goathland where Heartbeat was filmed along with some scenes from the first Harry Potter film.
I have a couple of cards to post this week.
Over at Daring Cardmakers this weeks its Lythan turn to host the challenge and she would like to see something oriental on your cards as its Buddha's birthday.

I went all girly and pink with my card.  I was going to use red and black but I saw these papers and thought pink and blue would look so pretty.
The papers are from My Time Made Easy called Fun and Fortune.

I then added some little blossoms using the Spellbinders Rose Creation die.
The card below is from the previous week at Daring Cardmakers for the Elemental Inspiration challenge.

It was my turn to host the challenge and in all the excitement of packing for our holidays I forgot to make my blog post. 
So from the image above you had to pick at least three elements.

I picked the colours, the silver cake stand, ribbon, stripes and ric rac.

I hope you all have a lovely week and I better get back to my laundry pile.  That's the worst thing about holidays the washing when you return.


  1. Eden Camp is fab. I remember going there when the kids were small and the sound of the V8 (I think) bomb was still scary. Glad it is still going. Your oriental card is great - love the flowers and the cute geisha. And that cake stand is perfect for your dare card :)
