Birthday Collage

Welcome to another wet windy day here in Rutland. I am sitting here in my dressing gown as the wind howls down the chimney. You wouldn't think it was the beginning of June already! I did manage to get a quick 10mins in at the allotment to plant out some of the Celeriac before the heavens opened again. I think the wind is trying to steal off with my greenhouse.

Anyway, we have a new theme for you all over on Facebook - Monthly Themes for Crafting. There is no prize this month so it is a Just For Fun challenge, but the entry with the most votes does get to be on the group banner for the following month :). The challenge for the month of June is:

Here is my inspiration piece for the month:
Birthday Collage - Tina
 This is a one layer card created on the computer using the Digital Designer Favourites Edition CD-Rom. Unfortunately the digital designer application will not work with this particular CD-Rom though, so I had too create the collage using Microsoft Word instead. All the elements are Country Companions apart from the Butterfly (Daisy and Dandelion) and the text, which was done in Word itself.

This card is also to be entered for the following challenges:
Crafty Calender Things with Wings
aud sentiments 132 Cute
abc-challenge K for Kritters
crafty catz #281 Spring Time
simply less is moore 226 two or four legs (not often you can enter a collage for a less is more card)

Finally I thought I would share another update of the Height Chart:
7.5 hours in :)
