Digital Tuesday Challenge- Sweet Birthdays

It's time for another Digital Tuesday Challenge and this week Paula has choose the theme of Sweet Birthdays. Make a birthday card with something sweet on it, a sweet wrapper decorated for a birthday etc, as long as you have used something digital.
I choose to make a card, surprise lol and I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers.
I found a free sweet image at The DAISIE Company.

Don't know if you can see here but the writing at the top of the door says Sweet Bakery. It reminds me of the witches house in Hansel and Gretal lol. Wouldn't mind a house like this myself but don't think it would last very long as a house if it was all edible lol.
All the papers I have used are freebies from Creative Cardmaking magazine. I don't normally like to use the papers from amgazines because they are always really thin but the ones in this mag are always lovely and thick.
I cut a scalloped circle with my nesties to mat the sentiment circle onto which was done on the computer and I inked the edges of the scalloped circle.
All the flowers are Primas from Aries Crafts and everything else from my stash.
Oh incase you can't see it very well here, the sentiment I made says Hope you birthday is is sweet as you. Thought that was quite fitting for the theme
Our sponsor this week is My Grafico, who have some great digi's and also some cool freebies you can download too. Hope some of you lovely crafters will join us again this week.
I must apologise again for not visiting people's blogs last week. I did go to the doctors yesterday and they sent me to the hospital to get a scan and blood tests etc as they thought when I had the miscarrige, not everything had came away but it has and they just don't know why I have been feeling dizzy etc and haven't stopped bleeding yet (over 5 weeks!!). So got to wait for blood test and swab results to come back. Sorry I know this is not what you want to read on a cardmaking blog but some of my regular visitors have been emailing to ask what was wrong.
Hopefully I will find out next week and get something done about it because I keep falling over and am seeing double sometimes, it's driving me crazy.
I'm off to make some cards, got loads of new lovely goodies from Ian and Lynne at Aries Crafts this morning and can't5 wait to play with them. They have the cutest animal toppers, papers and stamps on their website and I have some to play with :) So guess what will be on my next few cards lol. Oh and I got some pretty little bead caps today, so got to show you them too, because you know how much I love to use them. They are selling them at a fab price too!
Go have a look for yourself, you might be there a while though because they have lots goodies on there taht you will want. Please don't hold me responsible for your credit card bill though lol.
