Birthday Card and WOJ Challenge

Hello everybody! Todays post will be a short one again as I'm so busy this week. After we had freezing weather last week here in Florida (can you believe that? .... it was waaaay too cold and quite unusual), I have to replace several plants in my yard. Despite all my efforts to save them (covering with warm blankets etc) unfortunately they didn't make it. At least my citrus trees are ok! I'm thankful for that.

Finally getting a nice crafting desk and storage cabinet! Also have to finish some more cards and birthday gifts, but I'll show you all that later this week! Todays card has a double roll it's a birthday card for a crafting friend in Germany and also a challenge card. Her birthday is coming up in February and I hope she'll like it. I tried not to go too wild with the embellies as sh
