Happy B'day Sister

Hello all, l have seen some bad weather in my time but this has to take the biscuit
The rain had been coming down in bucket loads and theres no end to it forecast says
Plenty more and with America getting such a cold snap and snow l expect we will get
Some of that too in the next couple of weeks my daughter and her partner are going to
New York a week today and l was hoping that it would be a little warmer isn't sounding
Like it will be so plenty of wolly jumpers to be packed
Anyway l have a card to share with you and it's one that l made for my sister who has
A birthday this month so happy birthday to you

 Its a Decoupage card from Kanban my daughter bought me for
Christmas and all l did was add some 
3D Sticky pad to Mount the image
Magnolia Die cut out the flowers from scraps of left over card (Snippets)
Due drops, Card candy and Ribbon from stash
Sentiment also from Kanban 
l'll be making plenty of these throughout this year they are so easy and don't take too long
l'd like to enter into 
Di's Snippets Here

l would like to thank you for your comments they truly are appreciated
Enjoy the rest of your week whatever your plans
Many thanks Sandra H xx
