A Winter Birthday

Happy Monday all!

Did you have a nice weekend? Last Friday night, hubs and me went for a great meal; 7 magnificent courses and some great wine. Well, you have to treat yourself once in a while, right? ;) Thankfully we did have a voucher, so we didn't break the bank!

As it's Monday again, it's time for another Ooh La La Challenge and this time the theme is a fairly easy one: "Birthday". I made a birthday card for my FIL; he loves golf and has his birthday in December, so what better image than a snowy golf course? Let's see your birthday cards, come and link up with us :)
