Happy Birthday, Hannelie!


Sorry I've been MIA for a few days - my kids have been home this week and we've spent lots of time squeezing in some last-minute fun and also preparing to get back to the books on Tuesday.

This morning, a little birdie (named Bev) reminded me that Friday is our friend Hannelie's birthday. I'm posting now because Abu Dhabi is 8 hours ahead of Toronto, so it's already her birthday where she is!

This is also my card for this week's Muse challenge, where we have a Guest Muse this week, Lori Tecler:


And also for this week's One Layer Wednesday Challenge, hosted by Karen. This week's challenge is to use a silhouette.

Happy Birthday, Hannelie! I wish you a fun day and a wonderful year ahead!

Love the background colour, Ardyth, with the soft white embossing ... just lovely ... perfect for Hannelie! A couple of days MIA can definitely be forgiven ... it's been a couple of months for me ... forgiveable also?! Anita :)
