Fabulous!!!

I'm starting this post off with a very small gripe but it won't last long so bear with me!  I'm one of those people who are a bit picky about spelling and being from England but currently living in the USA, I come across a lot of discrepancies.  I understand that using the USA Silhouette site means that I get the US version of spellings but why can't they offer you the option of the English spelling as well???
Anyway, I spell 'Fabulous' this way but the Silhouette spelling is without the second "u" so I'm just going to have to live with it!

That said, the digi from Saturated Canary is completely fabulous, whichever way you choose to spell it!  I went to town with the flowers on this one as I felt she deserved them.

The current challenge over at the  Saturated Canary blog is birthdays and I made this with a purple-loving friend in mind!



I would also like to enter it into the following challenges -
http://smudgyantics.blogspot.com/ - drop dead gorgeous
http://cutedaisymay.blogspot.com/ - pile on the flowers
http://blog.oozak.com/ - anything goes


Thanks for stopping by today!

WeeeWew! (that's a whistle by the way) LOL She's some kid of sassy gorgeous Dawn. Beautiful card and yes, she deserves the flowers. :-) I actually had to pick up a pen and see how I spelled fabulous. LOL I always use the second "u" and I'm as American as can be. Think they need to check their Webster's. :-) Hugs!

I was born and raised in the states and I use the spelling "Fabulous". I think the Silhouette spelling is incorrect or it uses a slang version of the word. How frustrating! Regardless of the spelling, your project is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing with Smudgy Antics :)

I didn't know there was another way to spell "fabulous". I am a fairly good speller, and that's the way I have always spelled it. Hmmmmm....
Anyhow, just wanted to say that this birthday card is beautiful--love the coloring, the colors and the patterns, as well as your embellishments. Great job!
Hugs,
Penny
