unchain my heart...

Good morning everyone did you all enjoy the hops over the last few days, the DT's work was amazing wasn't it...we had a really quiet Saturday, shopped for Sunday lunch and did a little mooching but not much else really...Phil wanted to go shopping for my birthday present but there's nothing I have my eye on for it, its on Friday this week...I find it really really hard to get excited about my Birthday, Phil is always away at work on it and everyone else is busy with their jobs etc, so I usually spend it on my own or with my lovely Dad...to tell you the truth my Birthday is always really really bad, I dread it and usually keep my head down lol...about 25 years ago my Grandma died on my Birthday the poor woman, and it hasn't really recovered since seeing my birth date on her headstone I think...so you can see why I keep my head down cant you...but you never know one of these years something brilliant might happen...yeah right , I wont hold my breath lol...now onto my card for today which should have been on my blog on Friday but got postponed because of the hops so here it is today...its for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge and this week is a gorgeous sketch by our wonderful Jacque, I used this gorgeously cute little Tilda from the new Magnolia Sweet Crazy Love collection and is called Tilda with Heartchain...I think she is so sweet don't you, I coloured her with distress inks and used a bit of Sakura stardust clear glitter pen to her chain but I don't think you can see it very well, the stunning paper is from the same new collection and is called Magnolia Calla of Paris 12x12 paper, I love the faded aged look of it and like all Magnolia papers it is perfect for distressing, the sentiment I printed on my computer and I finished with a lush 25mm Dark Green wired organza ribbon tied into a bow and a pretty little green button...isn't that ribbon gorgeous and its only 40p a metre would you believe and in loads of lush colours too, well you know me I dont like ribbons at all lol, everything is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...ooohhhhh btw did you see I have been promoted to Team Leader at Bunny Zoe's Crafts DT too..I'm entering this for the Crafty Catz weekly challenge, Crafty Creations challenge and the Craft Calender challenge, right now I'm off to do some crafting while my fab Phil makes the family Sunday lunch, thank goodness Im married to a good cook isn't it lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

Hi Mina, your card is so beautiful (as everything else you make!) I can totally relate to your feelings about your birthday; my dear step-dad died the day after my birthday and it was as if he hung on for as long as he could. My birthdays are always tinged with sadness.
