Birthday card .....

.... Good evening everyone - I thought I'd be here a bit earlier today, but my crafting plans got a bit side tracked by cooking, but more of that later.  I did manage to get into my craft room and have made an ultra clean and simple birthday card:

Stamps: CAS-ual Friday Stamps - Shenanigans, Exclamations
Inks: Big 'n' Juicy - Happy Birthday; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Die-namics - High Rise Alphabet Uppercase
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Rainbow Handmade Paper; Stampin' Up! Card - Melon Mambo

I've made this card for the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge - CFC121 where the team would like us to create with 8.  Well, this had me stumped for a while - eight colours, eight stamps, eight patterns - couldn't think of a thing.  So I decided to christen my alphabet set by making a birthday card - and guess what - there are eight letters in birthday - silly me!!!  I cut out the letters, added a sentiment above and below and then adhered the panel to some handmade rainbow paper from my stash (I've had this for years).  I attached the whole lot to the front of my card.  For the inside I made a mat of pink card and stamped a greeting in rainbow colours and added a few star bursts too!

Now, the cooking I mentioned above - I made a Leftover Turkey Soup.  I saw the recipe on Kim's blog a couple of days ago and decided that with all the food I had left over, it would be a good recipe to try.  I made a huge saucepan full of turkey goodness.  Obviously because the recipe includes leftovers from Thanksgiving each batch will be different.  It was a huge success.  I even have a bowl full left for lunch tomorrow.  This recipe is going into my box for future years - thanks Kim!

Before I go, thanks so much for all the lovely comments on my new look blog - I'm really pleased how it's turned out - Thanks again Tiffany!  That's all for now - off to get dinner for us all.  I can't believe it's the end of the long weekend!  Back to normal tomorrow!!
