WhoopsiDaisy Challenge "Celebrations"

Hi everyone, hope you are all well.
This is one of the cards I have made for our Granddaughter Abi who is 9 years old tomorrow. New Years Eve.
I still have one more to make eek!
I have so much going on at the moment with my Father being so ill I have decided to step down from a couple of  Design Teams. 
I have loved being on the WhoopsiDaisy team & working with Linnie's wonderful images.
I need to step back a little for now though & concentrate on my Dad & family. 
My stepsister brought a photo yesterday that was taken on Christmas morning we could not believe the difference in him in 3 days. 
I will still be crafting when I can so I will still see you all around blogland. 
Our challenge at WhoopsiDaisy is Celebrations.
I used  a pre coloured image from Sheet 463
Bits from my stash!

Thanks for calling.
