Happy Birthday Mil!

I have to say 'Happy Birthday' to my sister-in-law today - it's a big one!
I made her a card using the Elusive Images Paris stamps which are fantastic: :
The Notre Dame image is edged with one of the Prima Build-A-Frame sets and the whole card is bordered with a stamp from the Prima Paris set. I've stamped on Crafty Individuals Spring papers and the deep red/pink paper is from Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste.

I also made her a small felted wallhanging: The stamps are from Elusive Images - the owl (one of my favourite owl stamps) and the larger leaves - and the smaller leaves and flowers are from the Prima text Build-A-Swirl set.
I got my felting supplies from the Altered Element, a wonderful mixed media shop! If you haven't tried dry(or needle) felting you should, as it's so easy and produces great results. Lynne's got all sorts of interesting stuff in her shop!
I met up with my brother and SIL yesterday and my brother was making her cake having had detailed orders of what sort of cake she wanted (I seem to remember banoffee sauce came into it!) - I hope it's turned out well!
Anyway, enjoy!
