Hope everyone is having a better weekend than me...been the doctors this morning and I have broncitis and a throat infection...feel like a big pile of plop!!

Whilst I am sitting here, thought I would show you a birthday card I made this week.  I following the fabulous tutorial over at Top Tip Tuesday, where our Magical, Mystical and Fantasy challenge is still running for a few days.

 ***oOoooOOooooh, you know, as I was looking at challenges to put my card in, I came across someone who had basically taken an idea of one of my valentines cards and COPIED it!!  WTF is that all about?  Absolutely infuriates me.  I wouldn't mind if she had said where she got her idea from but to just COPY??  HIDEOUS.  I know she has seen my card as she regularly enters my challenge blog.  grrrrr.***

 I have had these papers and this 3D shaker dragon embellishment for years!!  Thought it was about time to use them!!

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Tuesday Taggers - Anything with Accetate -the shaker has accetate on the front
