Oh happy day

Happy 1st birthday Martha!
Hi all,

I hope you are having a good week. This afternoon, we are having a small tea party for Martha's birthday and so yesterday Daisy and I made a chocolate cake with green icing (Daisy's choice!) I just hope Martha doesn't try to eat the candle. I'm sure she'll have more fun with the paper than the presents she will get, it should be a good day.

Here is my first card for Digital Delights DT. This week, I have used Princess Shona. I think I must be hanging around with my 4 year old girl too much, but I immediately thought she needed a pink castle. I made the template myself and added wild orchid flowers. My target audience was happy with it - Daisy has ordered one for her birthday but with Princess Shona wearing purple!

A new challenge is starting at Delightful Challenges, so please hop over and check out the new theme.
