Yes I know, this is going to get THAT SONG going round your heads for the rest of the day, and for this I apologise. Hehee!

My cousin's eldest turned 5 on Tuesday. When I asked her mother what her current craze was, I was told anything to do with Frozen, so I got her a purple t-shirt and the DVD. Of course, that meant that she had to have a Frozen birthday card too, which gave me carte blanche to go back to being a little girl myself again and play with colouring-in, glimmer, glitter and shine.

The snowflakes are from Sizzix's framelits set which includes matching stamps. The felt snowflake border is from Little Yellow Bicycle and the background paper is from Bo Bunny's Midnight Frost collection. I printed the image from the net, and coloured it using about half the Copic markers that I own, so I'm afraid I can't give you the numbers. Add Stickles Diamond and Wink of Stella in clear, silver and gold, and this is a card that shines with its own light.

I'm really looking forward to finding out how she liked it all, but really I know she loved it.

In other news, it's the final week of the World Cup, and what a week! With Germany wiping the floor with Brazil in a 7-1 massacre, and Argentina and Holland spinning out their goalless match until long past our bed-time with Argentina winning 4-2 on penalties... wow, what will the final bring? I don't know about you, but our fridge will be stocked with beer ready for Sunday night's final.

Hello Cousin, long time no squeak (so sorry) - I can see loads has been happening here so I shall have a leisurely browse through later. It was Frozen that caught my eye as a title in July!! Gorgeous card hun, haven't seen the film yet but it is sitting in its little box begging to be played soon. Sorry for being such a bad relative - I promise to try harder.
