Congratulations on the Creative Card Crew Challenge Birthday. I know I haven’t participated every time but I have enjoyed seeing the lovely creations you have all made.

I did post my card last night and tried to do the blog hop but no matter what I did I couldn’t get into the blogs and therefore had to give up and try again tonight. Hope I’m successful this time!!!

The card you have made for the Celebrations challenge is absolutely gorgeous - so bright and fresh.

Here is my card for this challenge

Best wishes
