It's your Birthday, Cupcake!

Good morning everyone!

I haven't been around much this week, the entire house was having consecutive stomach flu's so that was a lot of fun as you can image :s But thankfully everyone is more or less on the mend and I can blog again!

Today starts a new challenge at Card Makin' Mamas, our theme this time is "BIRTHDAY"! My teamie Lizzie's been pretty busy again and made a whole new range of birthday digis that are really too cute! I am using Tea Cup Cupcake in my card:
