Happy Birthday to Me :O)

Evening Everyone
I hope that you have all had a wonderful day.
I have. Today is my Birthday and although I have been at work I have had a lovely day.
I have received lots of cards, texts and messages on Facebook, so Thank You to Everyone for making me feel special.
I have been playing with the Bargello technique that Mynnette shared at Technique Tuesday, and not wishing to waste anything I came up with this card.
I couldn't resist stamping and embossing onto the Bargello panel, just to see if I could!!
I decided that the background to the card needed some stamping on it as well, and of course some sponged  Distress inks.
My day unfortunately wasn't all good as my present to myself is an emergency dental appointment tomorrow morning after I broke a tooth.
That will teach me to share a cookie with the Grandchildren lol.
I can see that it is going to turn out to be a very expensive indulgence.
Oh well better better get some sleep, I'm an Old Lady now you know :O)

PS I just noticed that I have won the Howdy challenge over at Our Creative Corner, how wonderful is that!
Happy Birthday Me xx
