Happy Birthday Nonni....Time to Party!

A very Happy Birthday Nonni!

It is time for us all to celebrate our friend Nonni. Yes, Nonni we thought you deserved a crafting party for your special day. A few of us have got together and are having a linky party for you.

Those of you who are reading this and do not know of Nonni's blog Korttikarkuri, I urge you to jump right over there and be inspired. Those of you who are here to link up your card....go right ahead and link up below!

Nonni is one of the best crafters I know. She is superb at colouring. I call her the colouring Princess! But lately she has shown she can turn her hand to all styles. She now makes outstanding CAS cards which I swoon at. Aside from her crafting genius she is a wonderful member of our crafting world, working on a number of DTs and always at hand to help and encourage others.

I am lucky enough to have met Nonni IRL when she came to stay with me in May this year. We have become very close friends and she is the most loyal and loving friend anyone could ask for. 

Nonni I am so pleased you are part of my life and we are here to celebrate you!

Here is my card for you:


I had to go with flowers as Nonni loves flower stamps. This is from the new release at Uniko Studios-I love this set, so easy to stamp and perfect for my CAS style. I chose this sentiment especially for Nonni as it is from a set of stamps that I saw Nonni use and I contacted her for the first time and from here we started to chat....and the rest is history!!

I will enter this card into the 'Special Occasions' challenge at Uniko Studio

This linky will be open until 12th September, so please join in the fun and say a very Happy Birthday to Nonni!
