Name 5 things I will be doing today

Make appointment to get hair cut and coloured.
Finish off 3 cards that I need to send off to my sister.
Watch Sunday edition of Brothers and Sisters that I have not yet had time to watch.
Send off a sympathy card to a friend who has just lost her dad.
Snacks I enjoy
Any kind of chocolate as long as it has no nuts in.
Things I would do if I was a millionaire
Start my own craft shop and card making classes.
Pay off the kids Mortgages.
Buy a bigger property in Spain with it's own pool (rather than having to share).
Take all the family to Disney.
Places I have Lived
Was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. Lived in Peterhead, Scotland for the next 22 years, Got married and moved to Rheindahlen Germany for 4 years, back to Aberdeen for 7 years and moved to where I am in Elgin, Scotland 12 years ago.

I needed to make a birthday card for someone today and I knew that it would fit this week's A Spoonful of Sugar challenge which was to make a card for any kind of celebration. I then checked out Cute Card Thursday this evening to see what this week's challenge was and could not believe it when I read that it was to make a birthday card.
So here is my card that fits both challenges.
I used a Hanglar image, Deja Views Little Ones collection papers and embellishments and a prima flower, sentiment CC designs stamp.
I really enjoyed making this card and I think it looks perfect for a little girl's birthday.
Thanks also for the beautiful wallet full of images Sharon.
I will enjoy this prize and will have fun deciding what to make, many thanks Sharon

Thanks very much Sharon.
I needed to make a card for our Great-Niece Lauren who is 5 this month - Happy Birthday Lauren. This weeks challenge over on Tilda & Co was to use swirls so here is my card. I have used the lovely glittery card from DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies pad along with one of my new Magnolia stamps and the little pearls are from Confetti.
