Happy 30th Birthday Heather!...

Hello there!

So...this post is day late, but not for the want of trying!  Yesterday was my friend's, Heather, 30th birthday!  Woohoo!  Well, I tried to post this card yesterday but the internet was just not playing ball and despite my best efforts it just wouldn't let me connect - doh!  Unfortunately that means that this post is a day late for Heather's birthday (sorry girl!) but I don't think she'll be too worried :)  We went out last night and had a lovely evening, although I'm not sure she'd agree with that so much today...bless her!  ;)

Here is the card I made...

I went with the rainbow colour scheme...I just can't help myself!  ;)  I asked Heather's boyfriend what her favourite colour was, assuming that he would know...WRONG!  I know she likes purples and reds but I wasn't sure just HOW much she liked them so I thought if I went with every colour then I couldn't go wrong!  ;)  Luckily she really liked her card :)

Here is this week's CAS(E) This Sketch sketch on which my card was based...

Aren't all the sketches that come out of this challenge actually awesome!!?  ;)  I don't think there's been one yet that I haven't loved, even if I haven't always had the mojo to use them to their potential.

I am also going to enter this card into the challenge over at CASology...if they'll allow it!  ;)  The Cue Card for this week is 'Arrow'.  I normally make my sentiment banners with an inverted arrow end, but I thought I'd have it pointing 'outwards' this time...not very well explained I know, I'm still not feeling too clever myself after last night!!  So...I'm hoping that this counts as an arrow of sorts...sorry to the CASology girls if it doesn't  ;)  It's their 62nd challenge over there already...can you believe that?!!  It feels like they only started up yesterday!  ;)

Thank you for stopping by guys and gals... ;)
