A simple Happy Birthday

Hello all!
Hope your weekend is going well and don't forget the clocks have changed over here Stateside so if you havn't done it yet, you're about to lose an hour!  No idea why this is done on a different date to the UK but it is and there is also another different date for things between the two countries - Mother's Day.  It's today (Sunday) over in the UK but it's not until May here in the USA - this means that I very nearly forgot to send a card to my mum!  Why can't all these things be on the same date?  It would make life a lot easier for those of us with a foot in each country :)

                Anyway there's a new challenge in all countries at the same time over at Eclectic Ellapu and the theme this week, from fellow Pink DT member Nana Connie is BIRTHDAYS .
            Nice and easy so I hope to see plenty of entries from all of you out there in blogland!  For my card I decided to go with a cropped digi from one of my favourite online stores - Teddy Bo .  I cropped Teddy Bea down to her face, hat and flower as I wanted to do a Spring time card.

                  Isn't she pretty?  I would like to enter this into the challenges at Teddy Bo , 2 SistersAllsorts and One Stop Craft .

Thanks for popping in!

Hey, I am so glad I live in Arizona--we don't change for Daylight Savings, so never lose sleep over the time change! :^)
Too bad our holidays don't coincide, huh? Hallmark should get on that one right away, lol!
